The Epilepsy Center at Barrow Neurological Institute of St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center offers a comprehensive program for the diagnosis and treatment of children and adults with epilepsy. In addition, the Epilepsy Center manages special populations of people with epilepsy, including patients with refractory epilepsy, elderly patients, and pregnant women. Every year the Epilepsy Center evaluates and treats thousands of people with epilepsy and seizure disorders from the U.S. and around the world.
Barrow's roots in the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy date from 1950, when John R. Green, MD, Barrow's founding director, began performing epilepsy surgery in Phoenix—before Barrow was established in 1962. Green published numerous scientific reports on epilepsy surgery, including temporal lobe operations and epilepsy surgery for children and teenagers.
