Epilepsy
The Stony Brook Comprehensive Epilepsy Center is designated by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC) as a Level 4 Epilepsy Center. To attain this level, an epilepsy center must have the professional expertise and facilities to provide the highest level of medical and surgical evaluation and treatment for patients with complex epilepsy.

According to NAEC Guidelines, a specialized epilepsy center is defined "to be a program which not only provides routine care to individuals with seizures or epilepsy but also specializes in providing comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services to individuals with uncontrolled seizures (ie. intractable or refractory epilepsy)."

This is important to note because of the 2.7 million Americans estimated to have some form of epilepsy, approximately 25 to 30 percent do not attain adequate seizure control and suffer from intractable epilepsy.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Hearing the words “You have MS” can be quite unsettling. But with Stony Brook Medicine’s expert individualized care, many available treatments and new advances to come, patients at our Stony Brook MS Comprehensive Care Center also have a multitude of reasons to be optimistic about the future. Each year, nearly 1,000 patients come from across the country and around the world to our state-of-the-art facilities to meet with our MS experts.

We offer the most up-to-date diagnostic treatments and procedures, are involved in cutting-edge research, and follow best practice protocols. We provide our patients with coordinated care that includes medical treatment, rehabilitation, psychological support and referrals to ancillary departments as needed. Our individualized approach to comprehensive care ensures that our assessments, evaluations, diagnostic and follow-up testing, recommendations, education and treatment are tailored to meet your specific needs.
With over 25 pediatric and adult neurologists who lead various sub-specialty programs, our Neurology patients, trainees, and colleagues benefit from the outstanding collaborative relationships we have with colleagues from the Departments of Neurosurgery, Psychiatry, and Behavioral Health, and Neurobiology & Behavior.

Together our four departments comprise the Stony Brook University Neurosciences Institute.
