Epilepsy affects more than 3 million Americans of every age. In fact, nearly
500 new cases are diagnosed each day in the United States.
Freedom from seizures and/or side effects is possible for many patients
through drug therapy or minimally invasive surgery. When seizures cannot
be controlled with medication alone, Hoag offers the latest techniques
in surgical intervention. In fact, Hoag has one of only two MRI/PET instruments
being used on the west coast.
The Hoag Epilepsy Program’s mission is to improve each patient’s
overall quality of life by providing quality care tailored to individual
needs. Hoag Epilepsy Program offers comprehensive treatment through a
patient centered, integrated approach.
Hoag Hospital Epilepsy Center is accredited by the NAEC as a Level 3 epilepsy
center. Level 3 epilepsy centers have the professional expertise and facilities
to provide the highest level medical evaluation and treatment for patients
with complex epilepsy.
