The Comprehensive Epilepsy Center at Miami Children’s Hospital has been recognized by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers and is designated as a Level 4 center, providing the more complex forms of intensive neurodiagnostic monitoring as well as the more extensive medical, neuropsychological and psychosocial treatment. Level 4 centers also offer a complete evaluation for epilepsy, surgery, including intracranial electrodes and provide a broad range of surgical procedures for epilepsy. Recognition by the association reflects the center’s efforts to voluntarily maintain quality comprehensive epilepsy services and personnel.
“Congratulations to Dr. Michael Duchowny, Director of the Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, and the entire team for this achievement,” said Thomas M. Rozek, Miami Children’s Hospital President and CEO.
The Miami Children’s Brain Institute’s Comprehensive Epilepsy Center is an international leader in the diagnosis, and medical and surgical treatment of pediatric epilepsy – offering treatment options that are not available anywhere else.
Founded in 1988, the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC) is a non-profit trade association whose members include more than 60 specialized epilepsy centers across the United States. With the goal of no seizures and no side effects, the National Association of Epilepsy Centers strives to make high quality care available and affordable for epilepsy patients.
