Epilepsy MUSC

Comprehensive Epilepsy Center

Our Services

The overall treatment goal is to eliminate epilepsy in each patient’s life, often removing a barrier that has compromised every aspect of living for years. Dedicated epilepsy nursing and social work help ensure excellent case management and compliance, as well as a smooth transition to life-after-epilepsy.

In-patient services:

MUSC’s eight-bed epilepsy inpatient unit offers the latest digital monitoring and video capabilities to quickly and efficiently develop a definitive diagnosis for patients who do not respond to first-line therapies. Seizure activity is captured and evaluated in a fraction of the time required in non-dedicated environments.

Out-patient Services:

Patients are evaluated and provided a continuum of care by our multi-disciplinary team through our out-patient clinic in the Rutledge Tower in downtown Charleston and in Mt. Pleasant, SC.

New Onset Clinic:

The New Onset Seizure clinic at MUSC targets prompt diagnosis of seizures.  Early diagnosis is essential because it enables the correct treatments.  Learn more about the New Onset clinic.

Neurophysiology Lab:

The Neurophysiology Lab at the Medical University of South Carolina offers patients comprehensive diagnostic testing in a comfortable atmosphere for both in-patient and out-patient services. Using the latest technology, medical professionals in the Neurophysiology Lab work with patients and their physicians to assist in the diagnosis of a wide variety of neurological conditions. MUSC is currently the only medical center in the United States with the complete combination of accredited labs in EEG, Intraoperative Monitoring, and Intracranial and Extracranial vascular imaging, in conjunction with a level IV epilepsy center.
