Valley’s Neuroscience Institute’s Epilepsy Clinic accreditation as a Level 4 epilepsy center by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers has been reaffirmed for 2018. Level 4 epilepsy centers such as Valley’s Epilepsy Clinic, provide the highest level of care to people with epilepsy and other seizure disorders.
“With 40 types of epilepsy and ten types of seizures, epilepsy is an amazingly complex condition,” says epilepsy specialist and Neuroscience Institute Medical Director David Vossler, MD. “I am exceedingly proud of the multi-disciplinary team we’ve assembled to evaluate and collaboratively treat those in our community with epilepsy and our Level 4 certification which places us in the top tier of epilepsy centers nationally.”
As a Level 4 epilepsy center, Valley provides a patient-oriented team of providers, including:
- Neurologists with expertise in treating seizures
- Nurse specialists
- EEG technologists
- Social workers
- Others with training and experience in epilepsy care
Specialized Level 4 epilepsy centers like ours provide routine care to individuals with seizures or epilepsy, and specialize in providing comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services to individuals with uncontrolled seizures (i.e., intractable or refractory epilepsy). Level 4 centers also offer a complete evaluation for epilepsy surgery, including intracranial electrodes and a broad range of surgical procedures for epilepsy. Learn more at NAEC.org.
