Stanford Comprehensive Epilepsy Program

Designated by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers with its highest distinction level as a level 4 center, the Stanford Comprehensive Epilepsy Program is ranked among the top comprehensive centers in the nation.

As a comprehensive epilepsy center, Stanford offers you: Epilepsy Care

Our nationally-recognized epilepsy team works together to develop a personalized treatment plan for you and provides care for more than 4,000 patients annually. Team members include epileptologists, epilepsy surgeons, neuroradiologists, neuropsychologists, neuropsychiatrists and nurses with extensive expertise in epilepsy.

Individuals with epilepsy that cannot be controlled by medications are referred to the Stanford Intractable Epilepsy Program. Patients with seizures that originate from a single source in the brain are evaluated for epilepsy surgery combined with brain mapping, offering greater precision than ever in removing the seizure source without causing impairments.

Epilepsy Research

Our physician-researchers and scientists are pioneers in making discoveries through studying the causes of epilepsy, propagation of seizures in the brain, and innovative methods to treat intractable epilepsy, such as electrical stimulation. They are currently engaged in groundbreaking studies on the causes of epilepsy, the effect of seizures and medications on human cognition and emotion, and developing new devices for epilepsy treatment.
