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 brother was diagnosed with epilepsy. After conferring with my family, we decided to treat her in the Israeli Sourasky clinic. Thanks to its narrow specialization and excellent technical equipment, this medical institution is without a doubt one of the best in the world.

Diagnosis: epilepsy

I asked for medical help after the onset of severe dizziness and uncontrollable twitching of the eyelids. After being examined in a Russian clinic, I was diagnosed with epilepsy. The prescribed treatment did not particularly help, which I basically did not pay much attention to. Since I wanted to finalize until retirement, to which there is very little time left. But a strong deterioration in the condition and an increase in seizures made me take a more serious approach to finding a solution. Since domestic specialists could not help, I decided to seek help from the Ichilov clinic in Israel. The treatment led by Dr. Yitzhak Fried helped. The frequency of attacks decreased, and the symptoms almost disappeared. For which many thanks to him!

Diagnosis: epilepsy

In 2016, I was treated at the Rambam clinic for epilepsy, which I had suffered from since childhood. In addition, in 2015 I had a serious car accident, from the consequences of which, fortunately, I fully recovered. However, while I physically recovered completely from the consequences of the car accident, the course of epilepsy worsened significantly. The frequency of seizures and their severity increased, and the prescribed therapy ceased to produce results. It was then that we decided to seek help from the Rambam. Treatment in the clinic lasted about a month and a half. Throughout this period, the staff treated me with understanding and goodwill. Also in the clinic, I underwent a complete and comprehensive diagnosis under the guidance of one of the best specialists in this field, Professor Yitzhak Schiller. Based on the results of the examination, the doctor prescribed a treatment, which I carefully and painstakingly carried out. Over time, the disease subsided, and a re-examination conducted in June 2016 showed a complete absence of signs of the disease.

Treatment of epilepsy abroad: attackEpilepsy is a common neurological disorder characterized by a tendency to recurrent, unexpected seizures. According to WHO, 83 out of 100,000 people fall ill with epilepsy every year, in some regions the figure reaches 1%.

Patients with this diagnosis receive first aid at their place of residence. If there is no improvement as a result of the prescribed drug therapy, it is reasonable to consider the possibility of treating epilepsy abroad. According to the general statistics of medical centers, up to 70% of people with epilepsy can achieve a stable remission, subject to high-quality diagnostics and the right treatment.

The disease not only reduces the quality of life, but can also cause serious injuries with a fatal outcome. Of 1,000 patients, 1 dies as a result of trauma during an attack.

Over the past decades, foreign experts have made significant progress in the field of epilepsy therapy. With the help of new generation drugs and advanced surgical technologies, they manage to achieve a complete recovery or stable remission in the patient.

Among the leading countries in the treatment of epilepsy abroad, it is worth highlighting Israel, Turkey, Germany, Spain, and South Korea.

Epilepsy treatment abroad: advantages

Many patients from Central Asia and Eastern Europe choose foreign clinics for the treatment of epilepsy. This is due to the fact that local medical institutions do not always have the necessary conditions for successful therapy.

Thanks to advances in the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy, this disease is now considered curable. Up to 70% of patients get rid of seizures or note a significant reduction in their frequency and severity.

Epilepsy treatment abroad: advantagesThe best clinics in the world for the treatment of epilepsy enable patients to undergo high-precision diagnostics and receive qualified medical care. In the complex, this gives a chance to return to a full life.

According to Experts Medical patients, the main advantages of epilepsy treatment abroad include:

  1. Access to modern technologies that are not available in many countries.
  2. Opportunity to receive advice from recognized experts in the field of epilepsy treatment.
  3. Reducing waiting times to receive treatment and diagnostic tests.
  4. Treatment in hospitals equipped with modern equipment.
  5. Possibility to combine therapy with travel or tourism.
  6. Some clinics offer rehabilitation and support programs after discharge from the hospital.

It is worth noting that in the clinics of Turkey and Israel, there are Russian-speaking specialists among the medical staff. This makes it possible to receive high-quality medical care and avoid the language barrier.

Diagnosis of epilepsy in foreign clinics

Diagnosis of epilepsy abroad: Electroencephalography (EGG)Diagnosis of epilepsy is an important point on which the choice of therapeutic methods depends. The complex of diagnostic examinations in the case of epilepsy is strictly individual. Patients of clinics for the treatment of epilepsy have access to examinations on modern devices. They allow doctors to accurately diagnose and develop an individual treatment plan.

The complex of diagnostic procedures may include:

  1. Determination of the patient’s neurological status.
  2. Careful collection of anamnesis of life and features of the disease.
  3. MRI study, which allows you to identify pathological foci of the disease that provoke seizures.
  4. Electroencephalography (EGG) – to record the electrical activity of the brain.
  5. The WADA test, which prevents possible complications after surgical interventions and determines which of the patient’s brain hemispheres is responsible for speech and memory functions.
  6. Video EGG monitoring – to determine the localization of the focus of the disease and its variety.

Doctors also prescribe various blood tests to the patient to study the level of electrolytes, lipids, biochemical parameters, thyroid hormones.

Surgical treatment of epilepsy abroad

Despite the widespread use of new anticonvulsants, 30% of patients can be offered surgical treatment.

Surgical treatment of epilepsy abroadNeurosurgical treatment of epilepsy abroad is a complex type of operation that should be performed only in specialized departments.

The best medical centers are equipped with the necessary equipment. Doctors who specialize in the treatment of this pathology work in clinics abroad. In this case, the patient has a guarantee that the operation will take place without complications and the treatment will be effective.

Depending on the patient’s condition, neurosurgeons perform various types of manipulations during the treatment process:

  • remove the affected part of the brain, which is responsible for the occurrence of seizures;
  • change the nerve pathways that carry convulsive impulses through the brain;
  • implanting a device for the treatment of epilepsy.

To choose a surgical method for the treatment of epilepsy abroad, a thorough diagnosis is carried out, after which an optimal plan is drawn up.

The main types of surgical treatment of epilepsy abroad

Laser surgery for epilepsy (laser ablation)For the surgical treatment of epilepsy, various types of resections are often performed, during which the pathological foci of the brain responsible for the occurrence of seizures are removed.

Given the goals, patients undergo the following types of operations for epilepsy:

  1. Focal or focal resection. This is an operation in which the doctor removes the area of the brain that causes seizures in the patient. Most often carried out:
  • temporal lobectomy – in 85% of patients a significant improvement is recorded;
  • frontal lobectomy – allows you to get rid of seizures up to 50% of patients.
  1. Pathological resection. During the intervention, the doctor performs the removal of the part of the brain where the deformed blood vessel, tumor is located. Seizures usually disappear after the removal of the abnormal area of the brain.
  2. Multiple subpial incisions (MST). It is carried out in the case when the epileptogenic focus is fixed in that area of the brain that cannot be removed without complications. The essence of the procedure: the doctor performs a series of shallow incisions in the brain tissue, thereby interrupting the flow of convulsive impulses. Brain activity continues unchanged, so various neurological consequences are excluded.
  3. Callosotomy. The procedure is recommended for patients with complex forms of uncontrolled epilepsy, characterized by intense seizures that can lead the patient to falls and serious injury. During the intervention, the doctor dissects a group of fibers that connect the hemispheres of the brain. Thus, it interrupts their connection and the possible spread of seizures from one hemisphere of the brain to another.
  4. Laser surgery for epilepsy (laser ablation). This type of surgery is prescribed for patients with small foci of drug-resistant epilepsy. The doctor selects a pathological focus of the brain and acts on it with a laser. The procedure is performed under MRI control. Over 50% of patients after ablation managed to completely get rid of seizures.

In addition, stereotactic radiosurgery is used. It is carried out using the Gamma Knife and Cyber Knife systems. During the intervention, specialists create a three-dimensional model of the brain and carefully calculate the pathological focus to which the radiation is directed.

The length of a patient’s recovery after epilepsy surgery abroad depends on many factors, including the type of procedure. According to the observations of specialists, on average, patients return to their usual way of life within 4-6 weeks. However, at first they can still fix attacks that are caused by a reaction to stress. Within a month, their number will decrease, ideally completely disappear.

Treatment of epilepsy abroad: brain stimulation

Foreign patients often choose epilepsy treatment abroad for stimulation therapy:

  1. Treatment of epilepsy abroad: brain stimulationDeep brain stimulation (DBS). A method for treating seizures was approved by the FDA in 2018. The procedure is carried out in several stages. The surgeon implants electrodes in the affected areas of the brain, and a neurostimulator in the area of the collarbone. This device is connected to the electrodes using thin wires and programmed. This blocks the signals in the brain that cause seizures. According to the observations of neurosurgeons, over time, the quality of life has significantly improved in most patients, and the need to take large doses of medication has disappeared.
  2. Stimulation of the vagus nerve VNS. The technology is approved by neurosurgeons in the USA and Europe. Applied to patients suffering from focal epilepsy, in which the operation is impossible or ineffective. Vagus nerve stimulation helps to significantly reduce the number and severity of seizures in patients. The procedure is effective in more than 50% of people who have undergone it.
  3. Reactive neurostimulation. The procedure also involves the implantation of a device for relieving seizures – the RNS system. Outwardly, it resembles a pacemaker. The device monitors the activity of brain waves in milliseconds, thanks to which it effectively prevents an attack. A device for neurostimulation is implanted in the cranium, and electrodes are placed on epileptogenic areas of the brain.

The best clinics in the world use only certified neurostimulators from leading medical manufacturers, for example, Percept PC from Medtronic.

Treatment of epilepsy abroad in children

Treatment of epilepsy abroad in childrenIn epilepsy clinics, small patients are given a special approach. Doctors establish an accurate diagnosis, select the best methods, adjust the prescribed therapy, if necessary. Surgical intervention is carried out only with the ineffectiveness of drug treatment.

One of the world’s best epileptologists, Israeli specialist Uri Kramer, has developed a special bracelet that helps parents take care of children with this diagnosis. This is a device that monitors the activity of the child’s brain and signals to parents about an impending seizure.

Also, contacts of parents or other relatives can be added to the memory of the device: if necessary, they will receive an alert and will be able to help the child in time.

The device is also in demand to help adult patients with epilepsy.

 

How much does epilepsy treatment cost abroad?

Prices for the treatment of epilepsy abroad in different clinics and countries may vary. For each patient, the final cost is determined individually and depends on various factors, including:

  • the amount of research completed;
  • recommended medicines;
  • surgical procedures;
  • length of stay in the hospital;
  • fame of the attending physician;
  • the cost of rehabilitation after surgery;
  • additional non-medical services, which may include accommodation in superior rooms, a restaurant menu, personal interpreter services.
