The Comprehensive Epilepsy Center and the Peter Kellaway Section of Neurophysiology, under the direction of Dr. Richard A. Hrachovy, is designated by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers as a Level IV Center providing a full range of services for those with epilepsy.
Along with Dr. Peter Kellaway and our chair, Dr. Eli M. Mizrahi, Dr. Hrachovy pioneered neonatal electro-encephalography. He is very active in resident teaching and arranges an epilepsy/EEG module for all neurology residents. Residents rotate with him as upper-levels on the EEG service and often get 1:2 instruction in EEG. He is also the head of Epilepsy at the VA Medical Centers, where he staffs the epilepsy clinic and teaches residents. He is the fellowship director for neurophysiology. He has published extensively, including many prominent electroencephalography books and chapters.
The Clinical Neurophysiology Laboratory consists of three fully equipped EEG-video monitoring suites, four fully equipped sleep laboratories, two EEG labs, one evoked potential lab, and instrumentation at the beside to perform multiple types of studies.
