The Epilepsy Center
As early as 1908, Johns Hopkins physicians have been leading the way in assessment and treatment of patients with epilepsy. The diverse team of neurologists and neurosurgeons at the Johns Hopkins Epilepsy Center specialize in providing a comprehensive care program for our patients.
With a Level 4 Center accreditation by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers, the Johns Hopkins Epilepsy Center provides cutting-edge research, technology, surgical expertise, and patient care for those suffering from epilepsy or seizures.
Expert and individually tailored treatment plans are provided for all patients—even those with the most difficult to control seizures. These plans are designed to enable each patient to live full and productive lives.
We provide a comprehensive approach to the patient in collaboration with a wide variety of other specialties –including neuropsychology and neuroradiology.
Our team includes both pediatric and adult specialists so that as our patients grow, their specific needs can continue to be addressed.
