The Comprehensive Epilepsy Program (CEP) of Rhode Island Hospital/Hasbro Children's Hospital is a multidisciplinary program providing state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment services to adults and children with epilepsy. The CEP is particularly oriented to provide tertiary-level care to those with more complex needs, including those whose epilepsy has proven to be refractory to first-line therapies. Disciplines involved are neurology, neurosurgery, neuropsychology, nutrition, neuroradiology, clinical neurophysiology, psychiatry and nursing.
The CEP is accredited by the Nation Association of Epilepsy Centers. Based on our experience with vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) we are now certified as a regional "Center of Excellence" for VNS Therapy. We work closely with the Epilepsy Foundation of Massachusetts & Rhode Island for to provide local resources and support groups.
