Expert epilepsy care

  • Abbott Northwestern, along with our independent physician partners, offers the largest and most comprehensive epilepsy program in the Midwest and are the recognized leaders in treating epilepsy and other seizure-related conditions for patients of all ages. 

    Abbott Northwestern Hospital, in partnership with Minnesota Epilepsy Group, has been designated a Level 4 Epilepsy Center by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers.  

    Epilepsy is the fourth most common neurological disorder in the U.S. More than 2.2 million Americans have epilepsy, and it frequently affects children and young adults in the most critical years of their development.

    Our program is led by epileptologists experienced in the full range of diagnostic, medical and surgical options. These physicians participate in clinical trials of new medications and devices, and specialize in helping individuals whose seizures have not responded to earlier treatments.

    Abbott Northwestern is committed to providing excellent inpatient and outpatient epilepsy care.
