The Epilepsy Center at Medical City Dallas Hospital
Medical City’s Epilepsy Center is dedicated to helping people take back control of their lives. We’ve amassed a unique blend of world-class expertise and cutting-edge technology to treat our patients.
As a member of the National Association of Epilepsy Centers, we treat both adult and pediatric patients with uncontrolled seizures and complex neurological disorders. We boast nationally recognized epileptologists, neurologists and neurosurgeons, board-certified electroneurodiagnostic technologists and one of the lowest nurse-to-patient ratios in the country. Our dedicated team of specialists includes:
- Internal Medicine Physicians
- Registered EEG Technology Supervisor
- Registered Nurses
- Registered and Board Eligible EEG Technologists
- Child Life Specialists
- Case Manager/Social Worker
- Program Assistant
- Licensed Dietitians
- Guest Relations Representative
- Clinical Pharmacist
- Neurology Physician Assistant
- Registered Nursing Educator
- Chaplain Services
As part of our approach, our team of specialists discuss and evaluate a broad range of patient treatment options including anti-epileptic medications, vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) and neurosurgery. And our facilities are state-of-the art. Patients who require surgery or other overnight care stay in private rooms designed to make them feel right at home with TVs, closet space and private bathrooms. Family members and loved ones are welcome to stay as well.
Of course, fellow patients can be just as important to recovery as our top-notch physicians, nurses, staff and facilities. Our monthly support groups help patients and their families communicate with others challenged by epilepsy. At these invaluable meetings, members exchange wisdom about seizures, new life skills and—most important—emotional support.
