The Epilepsy Program in the IUSM Department of Neurology is the only program in the state providing comprehensive management, diagnostic investigations to localize epileptogenic foci - a prerequisite for surgical treatment - and social, psychiatric and psychological evaluation of patients with epilepsy who have medically intractable seizures or complex diagnostic problems.

Currently, the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit has four beds in operation at IU Hospital. A pediatric epilepsy monitoring unit with two beds at Riley Hospital for Children opened in early 2000. (IU Hospital and Riley Hospital for Children are Clarian Health facilities.)

The Indiana Comprehensive Epilepsy Service Program offers additional services to epilepsy patients and their families throughout the state of Indiana.
