Epilepsy Unit and epilepsy surgery
Integral Diagnosis and Treatment of Difficult Epilepsies
The goal of Centro Médico Teknon’s General Epilepsy Program is to completely eliminate epileptic seizures in our patients.
Our program uses the latest technology for epilepsy surgery and diagnostic procedures, such as intracranial analysis using electrodes.
We offer our knowledge of epilepsy to our patients along with a wide range of treatment options: antiepileptic medication, resection surgery, palliative surgery, neurostimulation and a ketogenic diet. We also participate in clinical trials of new antiepileptic drugs.
CM Teknon’s Epilepsy Unit is a place for us to meet with patients and their families. We work to establish a cordial, long-term relationship, as epilepsy is a chronic condition.
In addition to significant medical aspects, we discuss personal aspects involving quality of life, employment, or other pathologies and problems affecting patients. For us, how epilepsy affects a patient’s life is just as important as the technical aspects of the disorder.
Informing patients about their disorder is fundamental to ensuring successful diagnosis and treatment.
We have an additional annex for clinical trials of new antiepileptic drugs and a neuroimaging laboratory for patients with drug-resistant epilepsy and candidates for epilepsy surgery.
According to the standards of the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC), ours is a level-4 centre.
Over the last 30 years we have diagnosed, treated and cared for epilepsy patients of all ages.
The unit is made up of Dr A. Russi y Dr. B. Oliver, Dr. H. Bhathal, Dr. C. Bravo and Dr. D. Varela.
