The goal of our epilepsy program is to control or eliminate seizures in adult and pediatric patients by providing efficient, comprehensive, high-level care.
One of the most experienced epilepsy centers in the country, the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University Compressive Epilepsy Program sets a goal for patients to be seizure free.
Over two million people in the United States are diagnosed with epilepsy, a syndrome marked by recurrent seizures. As a result of new medical and surgical advances, freedom from seizures is now a realistic possibility for most patients with epilepsy.
Since 1977, the MCG at Augusta University Comprehensive Epilepsy Program has been a nationally recognized referral center and have performed 1198 epilepsy-related surgeries as of February, 2009. The National Association of Epilepsy Centers recognizes the Augusta University Comprehensive Epilepsy Program as a Level IV center, the highest designation given. Patients and their families benefit from the most up-to-date technology available. Health professionals in neurology, neurosurgery, neuropsychology, nursing and EEG technology provide a full range of diagnostic services, medical treatments and surgical procedures.
