Duke’s specialized and experienced multidisciplinary team treats epilepsy patients of all ages as both inpatients and outpatients, and our state-of-the-art facilities are equipped specifically for the care of epilepsy patients.
Our cross-disciplinary staff includes adult and pediatric epileptologists (neurologists with specialized training in epilepsy), general neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, neuropsychologists, and specially trained nurses and technologists.
Our comprehensive epilepsy team offers a variety of diagnostic tests to assess patients whose epilepsy symptoms do not resolve with medication.
Duke’s surgical approach to epilepsy -- now available to many patients -- has relieved seizures for countless people, with few complications, and we offer a wide variety of surgical and non-surgical treatment options.
To remain on the leading edge of epilepsy treatment, Duke participates in a number of clinical trials of anti-epileptic drugs, and our ongoing basic and clinical research examines topics such as:
A leader in the medical and surgical treatment of epilepsy since the 1960s, Duke Medicine’s epilepsy program holds the highest level of accreditation by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers.
Many of our physicians lead national and international epilepsy organizations, and our epileptologists average more than 20 years of experience serving both pediatric and adult patients.
In addition to excellent medical care, patients benefit from our Ambassador Program, which pairs current patients with other patients who have received similar monitoring in the past. The ambassadors inform new patients what they can expect during evaluation and treatment and help make the treatment process less daunting.
