Epilepsy Treatment Cost In Thailand

Whatsapp Chat Chat

Epilepsy, a brain disorder, is characterized by repeated seizures. A seizure occurs when the brain's electrical activity changes suddenly, altering the patient's behavior.

The treatments for epilepsy include:

  • Anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs)
  • Brain surgery to remove a small part of the brain that's causing the seizures
  • Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) or Deep brain stimulation (DBS) puts a small electrical device inside the body that helps control seizures

Some people need treatment for life. But the therapy might stop if seizures disappear over time.

  • Preoperative diagnostic tests cost, some of which may include MRI, PET, Neurological examination, etc.
