Centre for epilepsy, sleep medicine and neurological learning and development disorders


The epilepsy centre offers top-quality clinical care to adults and children who have been diagnosed with or are thought to be suffering from a complex form of epilepsy. We offer multidisciplinary care to epilepsy patients.  High-quality research facilities are available and we have a great deal of expertise regarding epilepsy treatment methods such as anti-epileptics, epilepsy surgery, vagus-nerve stimulation and ketogenic diets. Kempenhaeghe also supports people with epilepsy to live, work and learn independently, and we help parents to raise children who suffer from epilepsy. >>More information about epilepsy.
