We train academic epileptologists and clinical neurophysiologists with special emphasis on superior clinical care, extensive clinical or basic research experience, and education.
About Our Program
The Cleveland Clinic epilepsy program was established in 1996, with a total of five graduating fellows to date.
Our center has a long and proud history when it comes to training physicians in the specialty of epilepsy and clinical neurophysiology. The program has graduated a long list of distinguished alumni who now are clinicians and scientists in many academic centers across the country and the world.
Our surgeons and medical specialists have a strong presence at the national level with organizations such as the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, the American Epilepsy Society and various editorial boards and scientific program committees. The staff contributes to peer-reviewed journals and presents papers and posters at national meetings.
The epilepsy program hosts the Cleveland Clinic-Bethel Epilepsy Symposium every two years. This international conference focuses on a specific area of epilepsy and draws hundreds of participants from all over the world.
Surgical Volume, Treatments & Facilities
More than 200 epilepsy surgeries are performed annually, including the adult and pediatric patient populations. Surgeries range from temporal lobectomy to complex invasive mapping and resective procedures to hemispherectomies. Palliative and investigational surgical treatments for epilepsy are also offered in a highly select group of medically intractable patients.
Our state-of-the-art facilities include a twelve bed adult epilepsy-monitoring unit, a six bed pediatric monitoring unit, nuclear imaging, functional and anatomic magnetic resonance imaging, and new operative suites equipped with the latest neurosurgical technology.
