Epilepsy Clinic

jaslok hospital

The Epilepsy Clinic at Jaslok hospital was started in August 2000 to offer comprehensive services related to epilepsy and its attendant comorbidity, psychosocial aspects, etc.

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder that affects millions of people worldwide. It is characterised by seizures, which can range from mild to severe and can have a significant impact on a person's quality of life.

The clinic is staffed by a team of healthcare professionals who specialise in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of epilepsy. The team includes neurophysiologists, neuropsychologists, neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons with expertise in epilepsy surgery, specially trained neurophysiology technicians and an in-house medical social worker.

The clinic offers a wide range of services, including diagnostic testing, medical management, surgical interventions, and ongoing care and support. Patients who come to the clinic receive personalised treatment plans that are tailored to their individual needs and symptoms.

Diagnostic testing is an essential component of the clinic's services. Epilepsy can be difficult to diagnose because its symptoms can be similar to other neurological disorders. Therefore, the clinic uses a range of diagnostic tools to accurately identify the condition, including EEG (electroencephalogram), MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), and other imaging studies. The clinic also provides neuropsychological testing to evaluate cognitive function and identify any comorbidities that may be contributing to the patient's symptoms.

Medical management of epilepsy may involve the use of antiepileptic medications to control seizures and improve quality of life. The clinic offers a wide range of medications, and the team works closely with patients to determine the best treatment plan for their specific needs. The clinic also provides counselling and support for patients who are considering surgical interventions or who wish to learn more about lifestyle modifications that may help manage their symptoms.

Surgical interventions are an important part of the clinic's treatment options for patients with epilepsy. The clinic offers a range of surgical procedures, including temporal lobectomy, corpus callosotomy, and vagus nerve stimulation. These procedures can be highly effective in reducing the frequency and severity of seizures, and the clinic's team of neurosurgeons has extensive experience in performing these procedures.

Ongoing care and support are crucial for patients with epilepsy, as the condition is chronic and can be challenging to manage. The clinic provides patients with access to a range of support services, including counselling, education, and support groups. Patients also receive guidance on how to manage their medications, avoid triggers that may cause seizures, and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

The Epilepsy Clinic at Jaslok hospital is committed to providing high-quality, compassionate care to individuals with epilepsy. The clinic's team of experts works tirelessly to ensure that patients receive the best possible care, tailored to their unique needs and circumstances. The clinic's approach is patient-centred and focused on improving the quality of life for individuals with epilepsy. Patients who come to the clinic can expect to receive comprehensive, compassionate care that addresses all aspects of their condition and helps them achieve the best possible outcomes.
