For patients with epilepsy

Welcome to the Epilepsy Center at the UC Neuroscience Institute

For 25 years the Epilepsy Center has been offering hope, compassion, expertise and the world’s most advanced technologies to adult patients from across the Greater Cincinnati region. Our physicians are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of epileptic seizures, and they have a history of leadership in researching new medical therapies. Our multidisciplinary team includes epileptologists, a neurosurgeon who specializes in epilepsy surgery, neuropsychologists, nurse clinicians, neuroscience nurses and electroencephalographic technologists.

We are the Cincinnati region’s only adult center with a Level IV rating – the highest rating possible — from the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC). The NAEC defines Level IV centers as those that “have the professional expertise and facilities to provide the highest level medical and surgical evaluation and treatment for patients with complex epilepsy.”
