People with epilepsy are always at a risk of being overwhelmed by the sheer physical and emotional impact of uncontrolled seizures or the strong side effects from seizure medications. What is needed is expert all-round comprehensive & specialized epilepsy management instead of specific symptoms based treatment.
Medica’s Comprehensive Epilepsy Care Program (CECP) caters to the diagnosis, treatment, awareness and overall welfare of people with epilepsy through its advanced medical, surgical and neuro-psychological management of the disease. It offers diagnosis and delivery of advanced epilepsy care, with world class expertise and state-of-the-art tools and technology for treating all forms of epilepsy, including its most complex conditions.
Recurrent & unprovoked seizures are symptoms of Epilepsy. Epileptic fit needs medical attention.
