Diagnostic tests and therapeutic approach

Prof. Russi performs electroencephalography (EEG) — the initial exam for epilepsy foci detection in awake and asleep conditions of a patient.

A patient is under all-time video surveillance to analyze the activity of the brain and reveal the features of epileptic seizures.

EEG monitoring lasts approximately 3 days. During the screening, a patient takes antiepileptic drugs.

Special sensors record brain activity. So the doctor can determine what particular drug affects the patient's epileptic seizures most of all. As a result, Professor Antonio Russi develops the most effective plan for drug therapy. He may replace medications or adjust the dose.

The patient was treated of prostate cancer

I has a Skype conversation with doctor in Bremen-mitte clinic. Actually I was a very good option for me as I could not travel in the time being. The hopital meducal coordinator was supportive and she qas keen and she called me by phone 1 hour before the conversation with physician to confirm the time and she called me also to be sure that I am online to start tge conversation. The Bookimed medical doctor assistance was very helpful from the start minute I sent message to Bookimed. She called me on phone and took all the information to provide the best solution for my situation, I would like to thank her so much. She was answering me rapidly either through e-mail or WhatsApp after that. She was very cooperative and when I faced a problem with the time of conversation she rearrange another one rapidly.

The patient was treated of arrhythmia

Excellent and prompt service. They told (without insisting) which hospital and which doctor to contact. Initially I planned a survey in South Korea, but on the recommendation of the Bookimed coordinator, I went to the Italian clinic of San Donato, to Dr. Carlo Pappone, and I have no regrets. Special thanks to Anton Volvak and the representative of the clinic San Donato, Julia. Paid directly to the clinic (after all procedures), the price is the same as reported by an employee bookimed. Bottom line: I recommend this service.
