About 50 million people around the world suffer from epilepsy, and 10 percent of people on the planet will suffer from one seizure in their lifetime. – World Health Organization

The USC Comprehensive Epilepsy Center at Keck Medicine of USC combines the resources of the Keck Medical Center of USC in Los Angeles, the Los Angeles County+USC Medical Center and Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center. The center was designated by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers as a Level 4 epilepsy specialist center, which indicates the center can provide care for the most complex cases.

Providing world-class medical and surgical care for epilepsy across the cultural and socioeconomic spectrum of Los Angeles and beyond, the program also incorporates research and education as key components of its goal to improve knowledge of and find a cure for epilepsy.

The center was established more than 20 years ago. Our physicians are voted among the best in patient polls, and in 2011, our center received a Productivity and Quality Special Merit Award from the Los Angeles Board of Supervisors. Many of our doctors have received the Top Doctors Award from Pasadena Magazine. Our goal is to provide accessible, multi-disciplinary care, tailoring treatments to the specific needs of each patient. Our center provides:

  • Inpatient and outpatient diagnostic services
  • Extensive EEG monitoring
  • Surgical procedures
  • Wide range of clinical research programs
