Comprehensive Epilepsy Program
Ohio State's Wexner Medical Center has the only comprehensive epilepsy program in central Ohio. The Medical Center has helped thousands of people with epilepsy, including many with previously uncontrollable seizures.
The Medical Center's epilepsy team includes board-certified neurologists and clinical neurophysiologists, neurosurgeons, nurse clinicians, registered EEG technologists, research associates, pharmacists and consulting clinical neuropsychologists. Advanced monitoring techniques, a full range of medication options–including investigative antiepileptic medications–and advanced surgical procedures comprise the medical care available through this program.
In most cases, patients must be referred to the program by their primary care provider or specialty care provider. Find an OSU Primary Care Network office close to you.
