Diagnosis: epilepsy

Our daughter was diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of five. We tried many medicines, and they all worked for a while, and then the attacks returned again. We really did not want to put the child under the knife, but it was impossible to leave everything as it was. In the end, we decided that we would go for the operation only if we could be sure that it would not make our daughter worse. My husband found a good clinic in Turkey – NP Brain Hospital. The doctor explained how the operation would go and what precautions they take when treating children with epilepsy. It was a tough decision, but we made it. Thankfully, everything worked out great. My daughter tolerated the operation well, and so far we have not had any seizures. We pray to God that this is the end of our trial.

Diagnosis: epilepsy

My name is Vadim. My youngest daughter, Lyubochka, has been suffering from epilepsy since the age of four.

She has a very complex form of epilepsy. She took different types of medicines, and none of the medicines worked perfectly for her.

We came to Turkey for treatment, NP BRAIN HOSPITAL clinic. They received us well, met us at the airport, brought us to the hotel, helped us a lot. The service is good, the hotel is good, a team of good doctors has gathered here. These people are kind and willing to help. To date, we have been examined, found what problems we have. The doctor gave us medication. And if that treatment didn’t work, he gave us three options. We will be treated according to the second option. If the second one doesn’t work, we’ll treat it according to the third option.

We lived here for 10 days, things got better. We hope that God will give us health, healing, doctors will help, everything will be fine.

Diagnosis: epilepsy

I brought my son to Turkey for epilepsy treatment. After 3 years of unsuccessful therapy at home (in Ukraine), Turkish doctors found a solution to the problem in one week. Diagnostiс was organized very quickly. On examination, the child felt well. After the examination, there was a meeting with the professor, who made the correct diagnosis, we now know what and how to treat, and prescribed the treatment. We have all the medicines. Now we are being treated.

Therapy of epileptic seizures is carried out by an interdisciplinary team of specialists – epileptologists, neuropathologists, neurosurgeons, psychologists, and other doctors of the highest category.

Despite the fact that epilepsy is an incurable pathological process, Turkish doctors manage to achieve a complete cessation of seizures in 80% of patients. The remaining 20% are severe patients who manage to reduce the frequency and intensity of seizures, as well as fully control the further course of the epileptic syndrome.

  3. Innovative methods of treatment: Turkish medical centers have a strong research and development base, which allows the development and implementation of new treatments for epilepsy.
  4. Transparent pricing policy and affordable cost of treatment. Prices for diagnostics and various procedures are significantly lower than in the US or Europe. At the same time, the quality of medical services remains at a high level.
  5. Possibility to combine treatment and rest. This allows patients to improve their psycho-emotional state and cope with stress.
Modern methods of diagnosing epilepsy in Turkey

Modern methods of diagnosing epilepsy in TurkeyThe modern equipment of Turkish clinics allows for a wide range of diagnostic tests, which with 100% accuracy can determine the type of epilepsy and its impact on the patient’s quality of life. This helps doctors understand the needs of patients and choose the most effective treatment strategy. Also, neuropsychologists can assess the mental functions of patients and study how epilepsy affects their thinking abilities.

During the diagnosis, Turkish epileptologists will conduct a series of tests to analyze brain activity, which will identify the area of ​​the brain responsible for the occurrence of epileptic seizures.

The most informative instrumental tests include:

  • electroencephalography (EEG) in the state of wakefulness and sleep;
  • magnetic resonance imaging (MRI);
  • computed tomography (CT);
  • positron emission tomography (PET);
  • method of magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS);
  • single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT).

To more accurately determine the focus of the epiactivity in the brain, more complex diagnostic tests are used in Turkish clinics. Some of the most relevant and requested minimally invasive procedures include:

  • WADA testing (determining the dominance of the hemispheres in critical functions such as speech and thinking);
  • intraoperative EEG (a more detailed study of the electrical activity of the brain).

Invasive brain activity monitoring allows specialists to determine the need for surgery and prepare for the procedure.

These and other methods help to achieve maximum effectiveness in the treatment of epilepsy.

What conservative methods of epilepsy treatment are used in Turkey?

Ketogenic diet for the treatment of epilepsyThe treatment of epilepsy in Turkey depends on the form of the disease, the underlying cause, and the age of the patient. Depending on the type and frequency of seizures, Turkish doctors use modern drugs that help normalize brain activity.

In 70% of patients with epilepsy, the use of conservative therapy allows the disease to be fully controlled. After treatment, seizures stop, quality of life improves, and medication is minimized (or stopped completely) (in remission).

A qualified neurologist selects antiepileptic drugs in such a way as to obtain a clinically effective dose, not impair the patient’s quality of life, and eliminate side effects.

The composition of the complex therapy of epilepsy in Turkey may include special nutrition. The ketogenic diet is a diet that can be used to treat some forms of epilepsy. It is based on high fat intake and low carbohydrate intake. This leads to a state called ketosis when the body begins to use fats as its main source of energy instead of carbohydrates.

The ketogenic diet may help control seizures in some patients who cannot achieve satisfactory control with medical therapy. The mechanism behind this is not fully understood, but it is thought that ketosis may alter the levels of certain chemicals in the brain, which may reduce neuronal excitability and prevent epileptic seizures.

The ketogenic diet may be effective in controlling seizures in children and adults with various forms of epilepsy.

Advanced Epilepsy Treatment in Turkey

Stereotactic radiosurgery for epilepsy

Turkey is one of the leading countries in the field of epilepsy treatment. Therefore, Turkish doctors actively use innovative methods of therapy to combat this disease.

Stereotactic radiosurgery

When conservative anticonvulsant therapy and diet do not give the expected result, surgical treatment is usually performed. In Turkey, medical centers offer a more modern alternative to brain surgery – the destruction of epileptogenic foci with high-dose ionizing radiation. This procedure is completely non-invasive and effective. Already after 1-2 sessions of stereotactic radiosurgery, pathologically altered cells are completely destroyed, and this leads to the cessation of seizures.

In Turkish clinics, epilepsy is treated using the latest methods of stereotactic radiosurgery – the Gamma Knife.

Vagus Nerve Electrical Stimulation (VNS Therapy)

A new method of treating epileptic disorders involves the implantation of a special device that, working through the vagus nerve, sends electrical impulses to the patient’s brain, which can reduce the frequency and intensity of seizures. This helps patients reduce their medication doses and better control their condition. The device comes with a magnet, which, approaching the pacemaker, allows the device to quickly generate more powerful impulses and restrain pathological brain activity.

Surgery

The operation for resection of the pathological focus is carried out mainly in cases of drug-resistant forms of epilepsy. If medical treatment fails, doctors recommend surgery to eliminate the pathological focus that causes seizures.

Turkish neurosurgeons prefer minimally invasive surgical treatment, which allows patients to avoid risks and recover faster.

These methods consist of the fact that a beam of radiation is directed to a specific focus, which is responsible for the pathological electrical activity in the brain. Treatment allows for minimizing the impact on healthy brain tissue and directing the dose to the pathological focus as much as possible.

Recovery after surgery

Patients who have undergone brain surgery usually do not require long-term rehabilitation. Modern methods of neurosurgery and mapping make it possible to achieve high efficiency in the intervention and minimize possible complications.

After the operation, patients usually stay in the hospital for 3-4 days under round-the-clock supervision of medical personnel. These days, the necessary examinations are carried out to check the effectiveness of the procedure and the absence of complications. Most patients return to school or work within 1-3 months.

Is it possible to completely cure epilepsy in Turkey?

Using modern techniques, Turkish clinics achieve complete recovery in approximately 70% of adults and 80% of children.

In most cases, there are enough well-chosen medications.
