The Epilepsy Program

At the Mount Sinai Epilepsy Program, we believe that no person should be satisfied with ongoing seizures or unwanted side effects from medication. Our team of outstanding specialists provides a state-of-the-art approach to the diagnosis and management of epilepsy to help the adults and children in our care enjoy life to the fullest. 

Under the direction of Lara V. Marcuse, MD, and Madeline C. Fields, MD, our epilepsy team consists of epileptologists, neurosurgeons, neurohospitalists, neuropsychologists, and other specialists, all of whom recognize the most important team member is you and your family. Working together, we make sure you receive compassionate, comprehensive care backed by leading-edge research.

Our Epilepsy Program spans the New York City metropolitan area with outpatient practices in multiple locations. In-hospital care is provided at The Mount Sinai Hospital, Kravis Children’s Hospital at Mount Sinai, and Mount Sinai West. All inpatient locations are Level 4 Epilepsy Centers certified by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers.
