The Epilepsy Surgery Unit at MGH works in close conjunction with the Neuromedical Department's Epilepsy Unit to treat medically refractory seizure disorders in children and adults.

The Epilepsy Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital has been established to offer expert diagnosis and care for patients with seizures or related disorders.

The Epilepsy Unit offers comprehensive assessment, diagnosis, and treatment for patients who have experienced seizures or related disorders. As part of the MGH Epilepsy Center, the Epilepsy Unit staff work closely with neurosurgeons, neuropsychologists, neurophysiologists, and neuroradiologists with special expertise in the evaluation of patients with seizure disorders.

This service is complemented by the MGH's research in functional neuroimaging, beginning with the invention of positron emission tomography (pet scanning) at MGH and continuing with the latest developments in functional magnetic resonance (MRI) imaging. In addition the neurosurgical patient care units are equipped with facilities for performing continuously video-monitored EEGs and for continuous subdural and depth electrode monitoring when these procedures are necessary.
