Melissa Tsuboyama | Professional History
Dr. Tsuboyama completed her residency in child neurology at the University of Rochester Medical Center in Rochester, NY. She then completed a fellowship in Epilepsy/Clinical Neurophysiology at Boston Children's Hospital where she developed a particular interest in epilepsy surgery. To further her training in this area of interest, she spent one year at Nicklaus Children's Hospital in Miami, FL focusing on pediatric epilepsy surgery. She joined the department as a staff physician in August 2019 seeing patients with epilepsy in both the inpatient and outpatient settings.
In addition to her clinical work in pediatric epilepsy, Dr. Tsuboyama's research work is in part geared towards identifying the methods and factors that contribute to better epilepsy surgery outcomes. She also has a burgeoning interest in optimizing the use of medical devices such as those used for seizure detection and seizure treatments for people with various types of seizures.
