Comprehensive Epilepsy treatment in Yeshwanthpur

Epilepsy is a condition in which nerve cell activity in the brain is disrupted, resulting in seizures. Epilepsy can be caused by a hereditary condition or an acquired brain injury, such as a traumatic brain injury or stroke. A seizure is characterized by aberrant behavior, symptoms, and sensations, which may include loss of consciousness. Between seizures, there are few symptoms. Epilepsy is often treated with medicine, however, in some situations, surgery, gadgets, or dietary changes are used.

Comprehensive epilepsy services

Epilepsy is a high-risk condition that demands flawless and comprehensive medical attention. Our neurology hospital in Yeshwanthpur is equipped with high-level and state-of-the-art technologies which ensure complete care. The following are the types of epilepsies and the treatment procedures that are provided to the patients-

  • Pre-surgical evaluation of refractory epilepsy

Pre-surgical examination must be multimodal for patients with drug-resistant epilepsy. Basic investigations include a video EEG recording three habitual seizures. If multiple lesions exist, additional seizures must be recorded, along with pseudoseizures combined. A normal MRI and discrepancy in location between these tests should also be obtained.

  • Epilepsy surgery

When seizures usually happen in the same area of the brain, epilepsy surgery is most successful. When at least two anti-seizure drugs have failed to control seizures in the patient, epilepsy surgery is taken into consideration.

  • Vagal nerve stimulation

Neuromodulation, a therapy that modifies nerve activity, includes vagus nerve stimulation (VNS). In order to stimulate your vagus nerve, a device is implanted that regularly emits small electrical pulses to your brainstem through your neck.

Vagus nerve stimulation is a small electrical device that is inserted under the skin of your chest, similar to a pacemaker The device is linked to a wire that runs beneath your skin and attaches to the vagus nerve in your neck. Electric shocks are delivered to the nerve via the wire.

This is considered to help manage seizures by altering electrical signals in the brain. VNS does not normally entirely halt seizures, although it can help make them less severe and less frequent. You will almost certainly require AEDs. When the gadget is enabled, the user may experience hoarseness, a painful throat, and a cough. This occurs every 5 minutes and lasts for 30 seconds. 

  • DBS for refractory epilepsy

DBS has been proven to be an efficient treatment method for patients with epilepsy, with promising results of reduced seizure frequency and intensity. It is thought to be a successful approach to treating different forms of epilepsy in adults and teenagers. Book an appointment with us to know more about the treatment options.
