Specialized Care for Epilepsy
The Northwestern Medicine Comprehensive Epilepsy Center is devoted to caring for patients living with epilepsy and other seizure disorders. The center is made up of a multidisciplinary team which includes neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, as well as specialized nurses and EEG technicians who all are committed to providing excellent care for patients with seizures.
The Comprehensive Epilepsy Center offers two hospitals designated by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers. We work together to determine how to best treat your seizures in a way that minimizes significant side effects and maximizes your quality of life.
We believe that being seen at an Epilepsy and Seizure center makes a world of difference. This applies both to patients who just had a first seizure and for patients who have suffered for many years. We make sure our patients receive the correct diagnosis and understand the cause of the seizures before choosing the right treatment approach.
