The Banner – University Medical Center Phoenix Epilepsy Monitoring Unit is a Level 3 comprehensive epilepsy center by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC).

Level 3 comprehensive epilepsy centers have the professional expertise and resources to provide the highest level of medical evaluation and treatment for patients with complex epilepsy.

We accurately diagnose the type of seizure and seizure syndrome, as well as offer comprehensive epilepsy education for the patient and caregivers.

Patients are referred to the EMU by their neurologist or epileptologist for several reasons. These include:

  • Medication changes for optimal seizure control
  • Seizure classification
  • Determining whether a patient is a candidate for epilepsy surgery 

Patients can expect to spend anywhere from three to five days in the unit, which has private rooms. Patients can bring one adult to stay with them while they are here.  

Our experts are committed to providing an excellent patient experience and making sure that the patient’s stay is safe and comfortable.

Call the inpatient Epilepsy Monitoring Unit at (602) 839-0600 for more information.
