UK Epilepsy Clinic
The UK Epilepsy Clinic is a component of the UK Comprehensive Epilepsy Center and is designed to address the needs of children, adolescents, and adults with epilepsy requiring specialized care. Patients evaluated in the clinic have previously been evaluated by a neurologist and continue to have problems with ongoing seizures, medication side effects, or questions about the specific diagnosis. Selected patients may require other studies outside the epilepsy clinic including EEG-video monitoring, specialized MRI procedures and intracarotid sodium amytal procedures (WADA tests).

Additional consultative services such as neuropsychology evaluations and neurosurgical evaluations may be indicated. Potential therapeutic options such as new anti-epileptic drugs and epilepsy surgery are determined for each patient. Some patients are followed long-term in the clinic, while most are returned to their primary neurologist for ongoing care.
