The UR Medicine Epilepsy Center offers comprehensive epilepsy care, and is the only certified, level 4 Epilepsy Center in the region. We have treated thousands of people with epilepsy since 1989, helping many of them to attain better management of their seizures and enjoy normal, active lives. We strive to improve a patient's life (including employment, driving and personal well-being) by identifying, in children and adults, their particular type of seizure, so we can develop an individualized medical and/or surgical treatment plan.

Our experienced epilepsy specialists include pediatric epileptologists (pediatric and adult neurologists with specialized training in epilepsy), researchers, general neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, neuropsychologists, and specially trained nurse practitioners, nurses and technologists.

The UR Medicine Epilepsy Center and Pediatric Epilepsy Program are recognized by the NAEC as a Level 4 epilepsy center. Level 4 epilepsy centers have the professional expertise and facilities to provide the highest-level medical and surgical evaluation and treatment for patients with complex epilepsy.


  • Advanced medical treatments for epilepsy.
  • Epilepsy surgery for those who do not respond to medication and whose seizures originate in a well-defined part of the brain.
  • Responsive Neurostimulation and Vagus Nerve Stimulation, which use implanted devices to provide electrical stimulation to part of the brain.
  • Clinical trials give our patients access to new, cutting-edge treatments for epilepsy.
