A patient should be referred to a National Association of Epilepsy Center (NAEC) accredited Level 4 Epilepsy Center when he or she does not respond to two or more anti-seizure medications at appropriate doses.
A Level 4 center provides the more complex forms of intensive neurodiagnostic monitoring, as well as more extensive medical, neuropsychological and psychosocial treatment. Level 4 centers offer a complete evaluation for epilepsy surgery, including intracranial electrodes and a broad range of surgical procedures for epilepsy.National Association of Epilepsy Centers
PEATC is part of the Washington University Pediatric Epilepsy Center at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, which is accredited by the NAEC as a Level 4 Epilepsy Center. PEATC will not take the place of a patient’s primary neurologist but seeks to provide additional recommendations & options for advanced treatments.
