UAMS Comprehensive Epilepsy Center


The Comprehensive Epilepsy Center at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences has been accredited with the highest designation available from the National Association of Epilepsy Centers.

The Level 4 accreditation means that UAMS is capable of performing the most complex surgeries for the treatment of epilepsy. The accreditation is valid through December 2019. The nearest adult Level 4 epilepsy programs are in Jackson, Mississippi, and Dallas.

UAMS has hired fellowship-trained neurosurgeon Viktoras Palys, M.D., who is capable of performing complex epilepsy surgeries including placing temporary recording electrodes on the surface of the brain or implanting them within the brain tissue. These procedures assist in planning the surgical approach for particular patients.    MORE
