UAB Epilepsy Center gains Level 4 recognition again
The Epilepsy Center at UAB has again been recognized as a Level 4 Epilepsy Center by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers.
“Level 4 epilepsy centers have the professional expertise and facilities to provide the highest-level medical and surgical evaluation and treatment for patients with complex epilepsy,” according to David Labiner, M.D., president of NAEC.
Centers designating Level 3 or Level 4 status attest that their epilepsy center meets the criteria stated in the NAEC Guidelines for Essential Services, Personnel, and Facilities in Specialized Epilepsy Centers in the United States.
UAB’s center, housed in the Department of Neurology under the direction of Jerzy Szaflarski, M.D., Ph.D., features six neurologists specializing in epilepsy, along with specialists in neurosurgery, pharmacology and neuropsychology. The center is also home to the new UAB Cannabidiol Program, created by the passage of Carly’s Law by the Alabama legislature.
