The Penn Epilepsy Center

The Penn Epilepsy Center (PEC) provides the highest standard of care to patients with epilepsy and related problems. The PEC offers state-of-the-art diagnostic techniques, medical treatments, surgery and support to patients with epilepsy.

Members of the PEC are recognized leaders in research, diagnosis, and the medical and surgical treatment of epilepsy. The PEC was one of the first research centers in the world to study seizure activity and memory function with non-invasive techniques such as MRI. The PEC offers more investigational drug trials than any other center in the Delaware Valley. And because we recognize the impact this disease has on the lives of our patients and their loved ones, we also offer a variety of support services for people with all types of epilepsy.

The PEC offers comprehensive evaluation for people who have experienced:

  • one or more seizures
  • unusual events that a physician believes may have been seizures
  • long-standing seizures that are not adequately controlled
  • unacceptable side effects from epilepsy treatments
