World Class Care from a Team That Cares

The Yale Epilepsy program has been instrumental in developing many of what are now widely practiced surgical procedures for epilepsy, including the medial temporal lobe resection, corpus callosotomy and intraoperative or extraoperative mapping of the primary functions of the cortex. Collectively this team brings more experience than almost any other program in the world to the patients treated at Yale-New Haven Hospital.

That expertise is enriched by a very personal regard and concern for the well-being of each patient. Surgical assessment and treatment for epilepsy are not only complex medically, they are also time intensive and emotionally challenging. Patients are supported by caregivers during each step of the process, so that a very stressful experience can have the very best outcome both medically and emotionally.
