About Us

Widely acclaimed for pioneering achievements in research and clinical innovations, the Comprehensive Epilepsy Center provides a multidisciplinary approach to the complex medical and social needs of patients with seizures. An active branch of the internationally-regarded Neurology and Neuroscience Department at the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, individuals and families receiving care through the Comprehensive Epilepsy Center have available to them the vast resources of one of the country's most prestigious medical and teaching institutions.

The program serves adults and children with intractable (hard-to-treat) seizures, as well as those with other epilepsy-related diagnostic and management problems. The Center is certified by the New York Department of Health as qualified to carry out long-term video-EEG monitoring and epilepsy surgery for patients with intractable epilepsy. Exciting research conducted at the Center involves testing new experimental drugs and devices that help patients with hard-to-manage seizures.
