What is a Comprehensive Epilepsy Center?

A comprehensive epilepsy center provides specialized care to epilepsy patients. The Center has specialized information for patients as well as access to all modalities of diagnosis and treatment. In addition to regular patient care, the center also does research and teaching in Epilepsy. Our office has a patient education center with books, videotapes, DVDs and brochures and handouts about epilepsy. We have video information about epilepsy surgery available for viewing in our office.
