Specialists and Care Centers for Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP)

The Northwestern Medicine Comprehensive Epilepsy Center cares for patients with epilepsy and other seizure disorders. The center has a team that includes:

  • Neurologists
  • Neurosurgeons
  • Psychiatrists
  • Psychologists
  • Social workers
  • Specialized nurses
  • EEG technicians

At Northwestern Medicine, we strive to ensure our patients get the correct diagnosis and understand seizure causes. Then, we work with them to choose a care plan that is the best fit for them.

Talk with your neurologist to learn more about SUDEP. They can give you information about:

  • Risk factors
  • Potential warning signs
  • Preventive measures

This can help you make informed decisions about your epilepsy care.
