Florida Hospital Tampa Epilepsy Program Earns Designation as a Level 4 Epilepsy Center by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC)
Date:5/5/2015

(PRWEB) May 05, 2015

The Florida Comprehensive Epilepsy and Seizure Disorders Center at Florida Hospital Tampa has been recognized by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC) as a Level 4 Epilepsy Center. The role of a specialized epilepsy center is to provide an accurate diagnosis of a patient’s seizure type and seizure syndrome, comprehensive epilepsy education for patients and their caregivers, appropriate treatment specific to a patient’s diagnosis and surgical treatment or access to it if indicated.

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder characterized by unpredictable seizures and can cause other health problems. It is the fourth most common neurological disorder in the U.S. and affects people of all ages.

It is estimated that 1 in 100 people worldwide have epilepsy, which is why advanced centers such as Florida Hospital Tampa’s are so important.

“Being designated as a Level 4 Epilepsy Center is a testament to the incredible work done every day by the clinical teams here at Florida Hospital Tampa,” said Dr. Nancy Rodgers-Neame, Medical Director of the Neurodiagnostic Services Department at Florida Hospital Tampa. “We’ve spent years developing our epilepsy monitoring and treatment protocols, and that dedicated patient care has allowed us to provide comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services to individuals with uncontrolled seizures.”
