At the Indian Epilepsy Centre, all patients undergo an in-depth evaluation and consultation on an out-patient basis. Sophisticated tests like EEG, Video-EEG and MRI scan (tailored to identify the possible cause and type of epilepsy) are conducted as and when indicated. Every attempt is made to arrive at a correct diagnosis in the shortest possible time and the most appropriate medications are prescribed. Patient counseling is an important component in the treatment of epilepsy at the IEC. Most patients can go back home on the same day or at the most on the second day.
