Outpatient Services

The Penn Epilepsy Center offers comprehensive evaluation with digital electroencephalography (EEG) studies and a variety of neuroimaging studies, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) scans. Treatment with standard antiepileptic medications and support are available to all patients.

In addition, the PEC is available to area physicians as a source for:

  • second opinions
  • diagnosis of complicated spells, which may be epileptic or non-epileptic events
  • consultation on pre-pregnancy planning for epilepsy patients
  • advice on which antiepileptic medications to use and how to use them
  • presurgical evaluation
  • support and education
