We specialize in the evaluation and treatment of seizures and related disorders for both adult and pediatric patients. Annually, our team sees thousands of adult & pediatric patients in a combined outpatient clinic and dedicated state-of-the-art inpatient monitoring unit.
Through our partnership with Allina Hospitals and Clinics and Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, Minnesota Epilepsy Group offers a ten-bed video-EEG monitoring unit for pediatric patients and a separate ten-bed video-EEG monitoring unit for adult patients. Our state-of-the-art facilities feature fully computerized recording systems with 24-hour attended monitoring by experienced EEG technical staff.
Minnesota Epilepsy Group has achieved EEG laboratory accreditation through the American Board of Registration for EEG and Evoked Potential Technologists (ABRET). Minnesota Epilepsy Group was the first lab in the state and one of approximately 30 in the country to receive this honor. The Laboratory Accreditation Board of ABRET requires that high standards are met with regard to staffing, continuing education and development, safety, policies, procedures, quality of recordings, and ongoing internal review to assure a high level of patient care. The EEG staff of Minnesota Epilepsy Group is proud to uphold these standards.
Admission to the epilepsy unit provides the opportunity for a patient’s seizures to be recorded and characterized, seizure medications to be changed in a safe environment, and for precise localization of seizure onset.
