Comprehensive Epilepsy Programs are medical facilities specializing in the treatment of seizure disorders. They provide state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment services that usually include:

  • inpatient video EEG monitoring
  • ambulatory EEG monitoring
  • neuropsychological testing
  • MRI, PET and SPECT scanning
  • surgical intervention
  • Vagus Nerve Stimulation implantation and monitoring
  • Ketogenic Diet
  • clinical trials for investigational drugs

Most Comprehensive Epilepsy Programs utilize a multidiscipinary approach involving epileptologists (neurologists specializing in the treatment of epilepsy), pediatric and adult neurologists, neurosurgeons, physicians in other specialties, neuropsychologists, nutritionists, and social workers.

Comprehensive Epilepsy Programs are especially helpful to persons whose seizures are difficult to control or who have other medical conditions that complicate their epilepsy. Many people with epilepsy are successfully treated by general neurologists, physicians specializing in the treatment of disorders of the central nervous system.
