When a loved one has a seizure, getting the right diagnosis quickly is imperative — and Hartford HealthCare connects you to cutting-edge care.

As a top destination for epilepsy care, we see people of all ages with a wide range of conditions. Almost 50 percent of the time, the problem isn’t epilepsy itself but a mood or conversion disorder — equally debilitating, but demanding a different course of care. That’s why Hartford HealthCare’s Epilepsy Center has a state-of-the-art Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) with the most advanced diagnostic technologies. Our physicians are not only neurologists, but specially trained epileptologists. They work with other specialists as a team, so that your care touches every aspect of your health—physical, psychological and emotional.
