Diagnostics in the treatment for epilepsy in German clinics

Early diagnostics of epilepsy

German clinics specialists recommend to provide early diagnostics for epilepsy in children and adults after the second epileptic seizure not been provoked. Thus, main diagnostic program includes:

  • patient’s history intake;
  • clinical blood tests;
  • EEG (is provided during a few hours or a few days);
  • MRI.

Diagnostics for epilepsy in adults and children: what is the difference?

As a rule, the standard programs for epilepsy in children and adults are not very different. The only difficulty of diagnostics in children consists in the need of sedative medications administration during the procedures requiring a long stay in one position. Such procedures include MRI with contrast agents and PET-CT.

Centers of diagnostics and treatment for epilepsy

The leading centers of diagnostics and treatment for epilepsy in Germany are equipped with the most modern medical technologies for the most accurate examination of the patients. The Neurology Departments in hospitals like Nordwest and Alfried Krupp Krankenhaus patients are treated by the best neurologists and epileptologists in Germany. In the Departments specialists make neurological researches with following successful results application for the treatment of adults and children.

What are the treatment methods for epilepsy used in German clinics?

Methods for the treatment for epilepsy in adults and children

The leading and most effective treatment method for epilepsy is the selection of correct antiepileptic drugs. Such a medication therapy reduces or helps to control seizures. 75% of patients in clinics in Germany could return to regular life due to such a therapy. Medical therapy is most effective in combination with properly chosen ketogenic diet.

Surgical treatment of epilepsy

As the German clinics are equipped with the latest medical and surgical devices for neuronavigation, for the treatment of epilepsy these types of operations are successfully carried out:

  • Multiple Subpial Transection;
  • Craniotomy;
  • Callosotomy;
  • Stereotactic brain surgery;
  • Deep Brain Stimulation;
  • Vagal Nerve Stimulation (VNS).

All these methods are applied to treat epilepsy in children and adults. However, only neurologist and neurosurgeon can make a decision on the necessity of the surgery after a comprehensive medical examination of a patient.

Costs of the treatment for epilepsy in Germany

The cost of treatment of epilepsy in Germany depends on a clinic and the qualification of the treating neurologist. The examination of a patient starts from $ 12,000 incl. the hospital stay. If there is a possibility for outpatient diagnostics, the price is reduced.

Complete treatment and examination programs, as well as the final cost of all medical procedures in the selected German clinic is set after the patient’s history reviewing.

The patient underwent diagnostic

The hospital was good , and I liked the how you feel like there is always support when you need specially when you are travelling to aplace where you know no one . Diana was always in reach when I needed something during the prep phase , and Olena was very supportive during the stay . however I think that its better to arrange appointments with doctor at least 30 min meetings before travelling to have some arrangements done with the doctor before travelling . regards

The patient underwent hip replacement

Hello! My name is Tamara, I am from Tbilisi. I applied to Bookimed with such a complex disorder as coxarthrosis of the hip. I suffered from this disorder during long time. I was born with congenital dislocation of the hip which was cured during the first three years of my life. Then, my family and I were in a car accident and my right hip was broken. I was treated during long time, had skeletal extension, then plaster, the therapy lasted two years until Dr. Ilizarov G.A. installed me Ilizarov apparatus. It was 35 years ago, since that I have finished my studies, got married, born children and grown them up. And I did not feel any inconvenience. Three years ago I felt an acute pain which did not let me neither walk nor sleep and made obstructions to my ordinary life. When I underwent a complete examination and had all tests, I was told that a surgery is the only solution. As I wanted to walk during the rest of my life without any complications and infections and had a guarantee, which our surgeons could not provide me (I don’t want to offend them), I have chosen this particular hospital. I found many clinics in Internet. Several hospitals in Germany and Israel offered me their assistance but for some reason I decided in favour of Helios Hospital in Hamburg. Medical experience of Professor Thorsten Herke inspired me confidence: he has made surgeries to many Georgian patients who can normally walk, ride a bicycle, drive and move at the moment. My choice was also influenced by presence of physiotherapist Sergei Karsten who practices all types of rehabilitation. He uses his own technique of massage and physical therapy. He knows how to develop joints to avoid stiffness of the body and to provide a full range of movements.

I had severe pains while walking and having load on my hips which limited my movements and Kazakh therapists proposed me only administration of strong analgesics. I did not receive physiotherapy and almost could not move I heard about good quality of German clinics and first of all that patients make a good recovery. Kazakh doctors believe that after installation of hip prosthesis normal range of movements can be achieved only in 6 months, but here I could start walking in several weeks after the surgery. I considered a treatment in Israel. Price policy there is almost the same as in Germany but there is no system of rehabilitation centers and rehabilitation therapy similar to German. I found a private clinic HELIOS-Endo. I was convinced both by reputation of the hospital and good reviews of Kazakhs who were treated there. I expected that after my treatment in Helios I can walk without pain. And regardless that I had the surgery less than two weeks ago, my condition has greatly improved. I am very satisfied with the result. Professor Gerke made my surgery and I want to express my gratitude to him. Besides excellent surgery and regardless extreme occupation, he paid me a lot of attention. I felt safe in the hospital.

The patient was treated of prostate cancer

I was very impressed with the thoroughness of the treatment which I received in Germany. The fact that it did not lead to the treatment which I was hoping for was wholly related to the nature of my disease. As it was I gained some valuable insights into a fresh development in my disease which has been helpful back in the UK.

In 2011, we arrived in Germany with kyphoscoliosis 4 degrees. The situation in which we found ourselves, was very deplorable. We were told that daughter wiil not walk anymore, she is doomed to live in a wheelchair. In Pforzheim Dr. Ruud, who is the chief doctor of the center, and he did not promise anything and did not say anything that they could do. He simply said, "She will walk." Svetlana gave up drugs during the first month, in six months - from the catheter, the first week she began to drive up the stairs, through 2 years - we put aside the wheelchair at all. Now my daughter is already walking with a cane. I am very grateful to those people who have taught my daughter to go and laugh. Low maternal bow.

I am 53 years old, I'm from Kazan. In November 2013 I suffered a hemorrhagic stroke. The person who suffered stroke, starts to look at life with different eyes. However, everything changed when in January 2015 I came to the rehabilitation center in Pforzheim city in Germany. The care, attention, everything is present in every movement of the face of a specialist, Sarah Felkle who cured me. felt not only the confidence that I can win my problems, but I just, again praised and became sure that my life again has sense. The most important thing is necessary to believe and to work on your own problems, and I hope that I will be assisted by the center staff in this. I would like to thank especilly the translator Irina Feldman, who was always with me and ready to come to the rescue at any time. Thanks to all the staff of the center for your hard work, patience and love to your patients.
