DMC/WSU Comprehensive Epilepsy Program

Michigan's Leader in Epilepsy Research and Care

The DMC/WSU Comprehensive Epilepsy Program is a Level 4 Epilepsy Center — the highest designation of the National Association of Epilepsy Centers. The program is operated in partnership between the DMC and physicians from the University Physician Group of Wayne State University School of Medicine. As Michigan’s leader in epilepsy research and patient care, the program uses state-of-the-art diagnostics and advanced medical and surgical treatments to control seizures and improve quality of life for adults and children suffering from epilepsy.

The role of a specialized epilepsy center like ours is to provide:

  • Comprehensive evaluation to establish an accurate diagnosis and provide a tailored treatment plan to the specific diagnosis
  • Resources for epilepsy education to patients and their caregivers 
  • Identify candidates and provide surgical treatment to patients with refractory epilepsy

At the DMC/WSU Comprehensive Epilepsy Program, a multidisciplinary and collaborative approach ensures that every patient benefits from the collective knowledge and expertise of nationally recognized epilepsy researchers and clinicians. The program even offers specialized care for pregnant women with epilepsy. It’s this level of specialized expertise — and a full array of the latest diagnostic services and treatment options — that make the DMC Harper University Hospital a regional destination for comprehensive epilepsy care.

Highlights of the program include:
