Epilepsy surgery program

Marcelo Lancman, MD and Arno Fried, MD

Program description:
• Our surgical program is one of the largest epilepsy surgery programs in the US. 

• We have the honor of having been had four of our epilepsy centers named level 4 specialized epilepsy centers by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC).  This is the highest designation given by the NAEC and identifies those centers that offer the most comprehensive range of complex medical and surgical treatments for epilepsy, a highly-specialized team of health care professionals and the most advanced medical and surgical diagnostic treatment options for epilepsy.
According to the NAEC guidelines, fourth-level epilepsy centers serve as a regional or national referral facilities. They provide the most complex forms of intensive neurodiagnostic monitoring as well as more extensive medical, neuropsychological, psychological and psychosocial treatment. They also offer a complete evaluation for epilepsy surgery, including intracranial electrodes, and provide a broad range of surgical procedures for epilepsy.
