The Epilepsy Center at Allegheny Health Network is one of the largest referral centers in the tri-state area of Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia with physicians who are nationally renowned epilepsy experts.
We provide adults and adolescents with advanced monitoring and extensive medical, neuropsychological and psychosocial treatment, as well as the most cutting-edge treatment options and clinical trials available today.
The AHN Epilepsy Center is recognized as a Level 4 Surgical Comprehensive Epilepsy Center by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers – the highest distinction for epilepsy diagnosis and treatment. We unite experts from neurology, neurosurgery, neuroradiology, psychology and social services for the most comprehensive, individualized care that addresses all of our patients’ needs.
Our state-of-the-art Epilepsy Monitoring Unit, located at Allegheny General Hospital, feature sophisticated technology to aid in quickly and efficiently diagnosing epilepsy. The four-bed unit offers patients optimal comfort with private rooms, each equipped with leading-edge video electroencephalography (EEG) technology that records a patient’s behavior and electrical activity. The unit features a centralized station adjacent to the patients’ rooms from where physicians and EEG technicians observe each patient’s video EEG activity around the clock. Inpatient monitoring also facilitates diagnosis by allowing patients to reduce or eliminate antiepileptic drugs during their stay in a safe and controlled environment.
