Patrick Landazuri, M.D.
Epilepsy Fellowship Program Director
Dr. Landazuri graduated with honors from the University of Kansas with degrees in Art History and Psychology. He then attended the University of Kansas Medical School, graduating in 2008. He completed both his medical internship and neurology residency at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York, serving as chief neurology resident during his final year.
After residency, he completed an epilepsy fellowship, receiving advanced training at the Epilepsy Center at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Cleveland. There, he focused his clinical work in seizure semiology (the way people move during a seizure), surgical epilepsy with stereoencephalography, and EEG monitoring in the intensive care setting. He also received advanced training in intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring during his fellowship.
Dr. Landazuri is board certified in both Neurology and Epilepsy. His main clinical interest is in the medical and surgical care of patients with epilepsy. He works in both the outpatient and inpatient setting. He performs video EEG monitoring in the diagnostic setting of patients with refractory epilepsy as well as therapeutically in the treatment of critically ill patients. His other main clinical interest is in intraoperative monitoring, particularly the mapping of cortical function during brain surgeries. Both the epilepsy and intraoperative monitoring allow for collaborative practices with multiple specialties including neurosurgery, neuro-radiology and neuro-psychology.
His research interests focus on the surgical treatment of refractory epilepsy. He participates in multi-center trials that examine more minimally invasive surgical epilepsy treatment methods. His educational interests include promoting understanding of epilepsy and simplifying its care for neurologists and non-neurologists alike. He is active in both resident and fellow education.
