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 strabismus

There was a slight misunderstanding in the treatment process; after a month, there was no apparatus for assessing visual acuity. At the consultation, we managed to ask all the questions we were interested in, but the consultation went very quickly, and in general we are satisfied.

Good day. Thanks to Dmitry, because we closed our question through a Skype conference. Initially, we only needed a doctor’s consultation. As a result, we spoke precisely with the professor that we needed. And he answered all our questions.
