Ketogenic diets — high in fat and low in carbs, with adequate protein — have been used to help children who have epilepsy. The Rush doctor’s research shows those diets are also effective for reducing seizure frequency and severity in adults with epilepsy, improving their quality of life.

He aims to learn why these minority groups face a higher risk for the most severe and disabling effects of these diseases.

His research sees promise in expanding the use of mechanical thrombectomy, a method for removing clots from brain arteries in stroke patients. The procedure is usually used in large arteries, but the Advocate Lutheran doctor and his coauthors found it’s also effective and safe in clearing out smaller arteries in higher areas of the brain that control functions like speech, vision, and movement.

The Northwestern Central DuPage doctor has studied the benefits of mobile stroke units —specialized ambulances with telemedicine connections, stroke-specific meds, and CT scanners that determine if a stroke was caused by bleeding or blockage. Diagnosing strokes in the field gets lifesaving treatment to patients 30 minutes faster.
