The Dept. of Neurology at Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences/SUNY has helped the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus earn the highest level certifications for its comprehensive stroke and epilepsy care programs. Det Norske Veritas (DNV) once again awarded Buffalo General Medical Center/Gates Vascular Institute with Comprehensive Stroke Center designation. This is the sixth year in a row that the system has received this highest level ranking.
The National Association of Epilepsy Centers once again recognized the epilepsy program with level IV accreditation, reflective of the highest level of clinical expertise in epilepsy monitoring, pre-surgical evaluations, and surgical and other interventions to manage refractory seizures. Arie Weinstock, MD, Professor of Neurology, serves as director of the epilepsy section, and Robert Sawyer, MD, Associate Professor of Neurology and Vice Chair for Clinical Affairs, directs the department’s stroke program.
