Epilepsy Program

Our highly trained experts study and treat epilepsy and seizure disorders and Yale is internationally recognized as a leader in innovative treatment for medically intractable and new onset epilepsy

We are equipped with state-of-the-art technology for continuous brain and video monitoring of seizures in infants and children. This represents one component of a comprehensive evaluation and treatment program for children with epilepsy. Recognizing that six percent of the pediatric population experiences at least one seizure in a lifetime, we are committed to understanding the nature of seizure disorders in children.

Yale Medicine’s Epilepsy & Seizure Center is known for clinical excellence and cutting-edge research, and for providing promising options for many adult and pediatric patients. Our program was one of the nation's first and has evolved into one of the most active and advanced in the world. We are leaders in innovative surgery for medically intractable epilepsy.
