The Duke Comprehensive Epilepsy Center is expanding diagnostic and treatment resources as part of a strategic initiative to establish the center as a national leader serving patients with epilepsy.
The expansion will create a more comprehensive approach to patient care by providing additional tools and technologies to help specialists focus on the complete care of patients with epilepsy. In addition to medical and surgical therapies, the center’s team will offer mental and social health counseling.
“We will enhance our ability to serve more patients even more effectively by offering a greater scope of care to a growing region,” says Aatif M. Husain, MD, chief of the center and chief of Division of Epilepsy, Sleep and Clinical Neurophysiology within the Duke Neurology Department.
“With a larger team, we will be able to offer more comprehensive services while continuing to focus on helping patients control seizures and improve their quality of life,” he says.
