Epilepsy & Sleep

The division of Epilepsy and Sleep offers comprehensive evaluation of and treatment for patients with epilepsy, seizures and sleep disorders. Our multidisciplinary team includes adult and pediatric epileptologists, sleep specialists, and neurosurgeons, psychiatrists and psychologists, epilepsy nurses, neurodiagnostic technologists, and social workers. Many of these staff members are international leaders in epilepsy research and care, including the past president of the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society and past chair of the American Board of Clinical Neurophysiology. We also offer a one-year, ACGME-accredited fellowship program in sleep medicine.

Watch Matthew Luedke, MD, discuss getting to know his patients at Duke Hospital and his epilepsy clinic.
