Epilepsy is a brain condition characterized by repetitive, spontaneous seizures. The seizures may appear in many ways, from a brief muscle jerk, to confusion and unresponsiveness, to generalized shaking and loss of consciousness. Epilepsy currently affects an estimated 3 million Americans. At the George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates Epilepsy Center, specialists use a variety of diagnosis and treatment techniques to provide personalized care for those living with epilepsy.
The Epilepsy Center is designated level 4 by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC). This is the highest designation given, and indicates full range epilepsy care from diagnostic studies to epilepsy surgery.
