The Division of Epilepsy and Clinical Neurophysiology encompasses the Epilepsy Center at University Hospital of Brooklyn, the clinical neurophysiology laboratories – electroencephalography (EEG), electromyography (EMG), evoked potentials – and the Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship Program. The Epilepsy Center includes adult and pediatric epilepsy clinics, an inpatient epilepsy monitoring unit (EMU), and clinical and basic research programs.

The UHB Epilepsy Center provides expert patient care to patients with intractable or problematic epilepsy, with the goal of attaining control of seizures and optimal quality of life. Our full-time staff consists of adult and pediatric neurologists, nurse clinicians, social workers, and EEG technologists, all with special expertise in epilepsy. This multi-disciplinary approach has proved to be efficient and cost effective for patients with refractory epilepsy.
Our newly upgraded 6-bed inpatient monitoring unit is equipped with state-of-the-art digital video-EEG equipment. Long-term EEG monitoring can help to establish a definite diagnosis in patients with episodic symptoms of uncertain cause, diagnose and facilitate treatment of psychogenic seizures, quantitate seizure frequency, and localize epileptogenic brain regions to establish candidacy for epilepsy surgery. Both adults and children are admitted to the monitoring unit. In addition, portable video-EEG monitoring services are available for the critical care areas, in adults, children and neonates.
Services provided by the UHB Epilepsy Center include:
As the only Comprehensive Epilepsy Center in Brooklyn and Queens, we are happy to provide sub-specialty consultation, or to follow patients long-term. Physicians who wish to follow their patients while admitted to University Hospital may apply for admitting privileges through the Department of Neurology
