Referring to the Academic Center for Epileptology

When your patient is dealing with – possibly- a complex type of epilepsy, the Academic Center for Epileptology, in which Kempenhaeghe and the neurology specialism at the Maastricht UMC+ work closely together, can offer added value for you and your patient.

We offer highly specialized diagnosis, treatment and support to children and adults with epileptic disorders and/or psychogenic non-epileptic seizures (PNEA). We examine your patient from a medical-epileptological, psychological and social angle.

As a referrer you are an important partner, with whom we like to cooperate and share our findings. In general, a medical specialist will refer a patient to Kempenhaeghe. In some cases, general practitioners can also refer patients.

Following receipt of the referral, your patient will be sent an invitation for a first consult as soon as possible. After the diagnostic examination we will inform you about the results and a possible follow-up trajectory. For most of the patients you will take over their care, following the intervention in Kempenhaeghe.
