Epilepsy Patient Care and Research
The Comprehensive Epilepsy Program at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) in Boston has been one of the preeminent clinical centers in the United States for the diagnosis and treatment of patients with seizures ever since it was established about 40 years ago. BIDMC has been designated a Level 4 center by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers, signifying the highest level of care available in the field.
BIDMC is at the forefront of the latest technological advances for seizure patients. As a leader in the treatment of seizure disorders and related diagnoses, the BIDMC Epilepsy Program includes multiple centers and clinics for more specialized care including: a First Seizure Clinic, a Women’s Health and Epilepsy program, and the most advanced therapeutic options for patients with drug-resistant epilepsy.
We are also the home of the Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation, a world leader in the development of brain modulation techniques that do not require surgery. We are one of the pioneers in the cutting-edge field of critical care EEG and offer the ability to perform continuous monitoring of brain function in patients who need intensive care.
In addition to the outstanding clinical services we provide, our research and education programs ensure that we are continually working to improve the care that seizure patients will receive in the future, by discovering more about the causes and consequences of epilepsy and by teaching about the latest in epilepsy diagnosis and treatment.
