The University Comprehensive Epilepsy Center offers
patients a wide range of diagnostic and treatment
options and features a highly skilled, experienced
medical team, state-of-the-art equipment, and
a multidisciplinary approach to patient care that
includes social workers, nutritionists, and rehabilitation
Continuous video-electroencephalogram (EEG) monitoring
is central to determining the cause of a patient’s
seizures. The Center utilizes five monitoring
units, two of which are used exclusively for children.
The staff has extensive experience in monitoring,
other specialized EEG procedures, and the use
of functional MRI scanning.
The Center is at the forefront of exciting developments
in anti-epileptic drugs. Clinical trials are available
for adults and children who have not responded
well to conventional medications. In some cases,
patients with intractable seizures may require
surgery. The Center offers epilepsy surgery to
selected patients for whom there is no other option.
Presurgical workup will include EEG monitoring,
neuropsychological evaluation, and coronal MRI
using a special epilepsy protocol.
