Epilepsy care options expand through integration of physician groups

The epilepsy programs of MINCEP© and University of Minnesota Physicians have integrated, expanding epilepsy care options for patients throughout Minnesota.

Founded at the University in 1964, MINCEP was the first comprehensive epilepsy center in the United States and has since served as a model for epilepsy centers across the world. It is designated as a Level 4 epilepsy center by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers.

With MINCEP’s return to the University, the integrated MINCEP and UMPhysicians team is a regional leader in the field. The partners are bringing the best of two worlds together to provide comprehensive epilepsy care, including:

  • Exceptional patient experiences and outcomes through coordinated care and advanced capabilities, specifically in pharmacology, diagnostics, and surgery;
  • Specialized programs for unique patient populations, such as children and older adults; and
  • Expanded medical research opportunities through the University’s state-of-the-art facilities.
