Epilepsy Care Journey

We have experience to find exactly the care you need.

Happy father and daughter

At Mayo Clinic, multiple experts collaborate across medical specialties to understand the cause of your epilepsy and outline the best course of treatment for your seizures and other medical needs.

Effective epilepsy treatment is more than neurology. Treatment includes a multidisciplinary team of epileptologists, neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, specialized nurses and others working together.

Not only do Mayo Clinic doctors specialize in specific types and causes of epilepsy, they have access to other Mayo Clinic doctors who span virtually every specialty of care. Our epilepsy specialists collaborate and frequently consult with other physicians and researchers — working from a single health record — to provide a truly tailored experience for each individual patient.

An entire medical team personalizes treatment for you.

Mayo Clinic teams evaluate and treat more than 8,000 adult and pediatric patients with epilepsy each year. Because Mayo's physicians are also researchers and educators, Mayo Clinic is on the forefront of new diagnostic and treatment options. Mayo applies medical discoveries to tailor treatment based on the exact root cause of your seizure disorder, giving you the exact care you need.
