Dr. Anthony Ritaccio is Director of the Epilepsy and Human Brain Mapping Program, the only program of its kind in Northeastern New York. He is an expert in the medical and surgical treatment of epilepsy. His team of specialists has exclusive experience in the care of difficult to treat epilepsy. The team focuses on evaluating and treating people with seizures utilizing the most modern techniques and state-of-the-art technology available in order to offer a more accurate and detailed diagnosis of a patient’s condition with goals of seizure freedom through medication or cure through advanced surgical techniques.

His approach to patient care is one that is both extremely personal and highly specialized:  “I treat each patient from start to finish,” says Dr. Ritaccio. “We are the only comprehensive, multidisciplinary team in the region engaged to cure people with epilepsy.”  Apart from his clinical focus, he is engaged in Department of Defense funded research on advanced methods of detecting and using human brain signals to control computers and computerized devices “with thought”.

Dr. Ritaccio, professor of neurology and neurosurgery, is also director of the Clinical Neurophysiology Laboratory and the J. Spencer Standish Endowed Chair in Neuroscience.
