Special consultations

EPILEPSY CONSULTATION

With any loss of consciousness, the first question is always ‘Was it just fainting or an epileptic seizure?’ This question should be clarified by an expert – epilepsy is more common than you think! Around ten per cent of the population will suffer an epileptic seizure in their lives. Almost one per cent of the population suffers from epilepsy.

Epilepsy that has been diagnosed and classified usually responds well to treatment. As the successor to Professor Egli (former director of the Schweizerische Epilepsie-Klinik), I have extensive training in the field of epileptology. Come to our special epilepsy consultation.

MEMORY CONSULTATION

As we get older, everyone becomes more forgetful to some degree. Only an expert can make a reliable distinction between age-related forgetfulness and incipient dementia (a loss of memory combined with thought disorder).

The most common form of dementia is caused by Alzheimer’s disease, but there are around 100 other causes of dementia. Only a specialist can provide an exact diagnosis, which is why you should come to one of our memory consultations.

MIGRAINE CONSULTATION

The International Headache Society defines more than 150 different types of headache. Patients with severe headaches and migraines are often not

satisfied with their treatment.
Migraines should be treated by headache expert – a neurologist.

PARKINSON’S CONSULTATION

Shaking, stiffness, unsteadiness? These symptoms may indicate the onset of Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders such as age-related tremors, restless legs syndrome,

dystonia or coordination disorders should be diagnosed and treated by an expert.
