The Comprehensive Epilepsy Program was established in 1987 by James Valeriano, MD, of the Department of Neurology and has become one of the largest regional and international referral centers for epilepsy services in the tri-state area of Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia. The program is a member of the National Association of Epilepsy Centers and designated a Level 4 Epilepsy Center. We specialize in diagnosing epilepsy along with both medical and surgical treatment in adolescents and adults.

Medical management in the form of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) are used for initial treatment of epilepsy patients. Our program has participated in numerous investigational clinical drug trials over the last two decades, and provides our patients access to new investigational treatments for epilepsy. Surgical treatment is available, which includes temporal lobectomies, cortical resections, corpus callosotomies, and implantation of the vagal nerve stimulator. Surgical placement of depth electrodes and grid electrodes are utilized for localization if needed.
