The most advanced epilepsy care in the region

Sometimes it can take a while to receive an epilepsy diagnosis. When we can monitor a patient’s symptoms over a period of time, it makes it easier for them to get the right diagnosis and the care they need. 

UM Health-Sparrow’s Epilepsy Monitoring Unit can help. The first and only facility of its kind in the region, the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit is a neuro screening resource staffed by an expert team of board-certified practitioners and neurology specialists who provide specialized care as they monitor patients around the clock.

Neuro diagnostic monitoring is the first step to care

The care you need begins with an accurate diagnosis. For complex and challenging neurological issues, UM Health-Sparrow’s Neuro Diagnostic Center connects patients to the neuro screening they need to begin receiving the treatment that can help. 

At the Neuro Diagnostic Center, skilled technicians and medical professionals administer a wide range of neuro lab tests including Long Term EEG/Video Monitoring, electroencephalograms (EEGs), auditory evoked potential (AEP) tests, visual evoked response (VER) tests, somatosensory evoked response (SER) tests and transcranial doppler (TCD).
