The National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC) has again recognized the Epilepsy Division of the Univ. at Buffalo Department of Neurology with a Level 4 designation. Level 4 is the highest designation offered by the NAEC and recognizes professional expertise and facilities that enable “the highest level of medical and surgical evaluation and treatment for patients with complex epilepsy.” The long-term monitoring unit for epilepsy evaluation is housed in Kaleida Health’s Women and Children’s Hospital in Buffalo and is expanding to 12 beds in the new John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital being built on the downtown Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. Dr. Arie Weinstock, Professor of Neurology and Chief of Child Neurology, directs the epilepsy program at UB.
