The Epilepsy Center, in the Department of Neurology, provides patient treatment in the UMass Memorial Medical Center and is recognized as a National  Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC) Level 4 Center, serving central and western Massachusetts, addressing all aspects of epilepsy care.  

Our multidisciplinary team is committed to providing excellent clinical management and compassionate care through advanced diagnostic testing and treatments to optimize seizure control, decrease side effects, connect patients with community support services, and ultimately improve quality of life. We provide comprehensive, modern, and individualized treatments for newly diagnosed and chronic epilepsy patients.  

Our team includes neurologists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists, neuroradiologists, nuclear medicine physicians, neuropsychologists, nurse specialists, pharmacologists, physical, occupational, and speech therapists, dieticians, social workers, and an array of EEG technologists and neuroscientists. 

As an NAEC Level 4 comprehensive epilepsy center, we provide second opinion consultation for complicated epilepsy management and presurgical workup. We also provide other procedures including the implantation of a vagus nerve stimulator  (VNS), a responsive neurostimulator (RNS).
