Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological disorders, characterized by abnormal, synchronous electrical activity in the brain which results in a seizure. More than half of all epilepsy cases can be treated with medication, while others may need surgery.
Our physicians treat hundreds of patients annually and are widely considered experts of diagnosing, treating and researching the disorder.
Our neurology faculty makes up the UC Epilepsy Center, designated as the only Level 4 rated center in the region by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers. The center is part of the UC Neuroscience Institute.
The center provides sophisticated evaluation and coordinated medical and surgical treatment of epilepsy. The center’s seven-bed epilepsy monitoring unit is the only one of its kind in southwestern Ohio. The unit combines expert neurological, neuropsychological and neurosurgical examination with 24-hour video recordings and EEG monitoring to discover the origin of seizures.
Once a patient is diagnosed and a treatment plan begins, the UC Epilepsy Center also provides exceptional follow-up care to patients and their families.
The UC Epilepsy Center's New Onset Seizure Clinic provides rapid access to epilepsy specialists for anyone with new onset of seizures or suspected seizures. Our epilepsy specialists see people within a few days to perform a comprehensive evaluation, create a treatment plan and provide education about the disorder.
We believe people with a serious problem like a seizure should have access to the top specialists and the best treatments right from the start.
Appointments can be made by calling 513-475-8730 and asking for the New Onset Seizure Clinic.
