Comprehensive Epilepsy Center
Improving your quality of life—so you can enjoy it
At the Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, our goal is to eliminate seizures, and the challenges patients and their families experience when epilepsy disrupts their lives. By providing personalized, patient-centric care, we empower everyone who walks through our doors to live with confidence and in the best possible health.
Our interdisciplinary team of nationally recognized experts consists of specialty-trained epilepsy neurologists and epileptologists, neurosurgeons, nurses and nurse practitioners, psychologists, social workers and electroencephalogram (EEG) technicians. We use the most advanced treatments available for evaluating epilepsy, preventing seizures and treating comorbidities affecting individuals with epilepsy.
Award-winning epilepsy care
At Northwell Health, four of our hospitals are accredited by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC), recognized for specialized expertise and exceptional services. North Shore University Hospital and Lenox Hill Hospital are both Level 4 Epilepsy Centers, and Southside Hospital and Staten Island University Hospital Level 3 Epilepsy Centers.
Both Level 3 and Level 4 centers offer comprehensive, interdisciplinary epilepsy care. Level 4 centers also provide more advanced diagnostic testing, including intracranial EEG, and complex surgical treatment options for epilepsy.
