Our Mission

The UCSF Epilepsy Center is a major referral center for patients throughout the Western United States and offers state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment options for people with epilepsy.

Our medical staff includes neurologists, neurosurgeons, pharmacists, neuropsychologists, and nurses who have specialized training in epilepsy and the problems that are associated with both the acute and chronic manifestations of seizures.

UCSF is one of the world's most advanced centers for neuroimaging, and our epilepsy specialists use the latest tools for diagnosing epilepsy and planning surgeries.

Research at the UCSF Epilepsy Center has helped define the most modern approaches of therapy for patients, including treatment with new medications, the surgical removal of the source of seizures that are unresponsive to medications, and the implantation of brain stimulation devices.

Our ongoing scientific research efforts are aimed at furthering our understanding of the genetic, developmental, and cognitive factors associated with epilepsy.
