Epilepsy is a condition that affects the brain and causes repeated seizures.

SYMPTOMS

The primary symptoms of epilepsy are repeated seizures. There are many different types of seizure, depending on the area of the brain affected.

CAUSES

In just over 50% of epilepsy cases, a cause cannot be found. However, if the cause of epilepsy is known, this is usually a disorder affecting the brain such as brain tumours, head injury, and strokes.

TREATMENTS

Anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs) are usually the first choice of treatment for epilepsy. About 70% of people with epilepsy are able to control their seizures with AEDs.

Letter to Dr Chris Turner, Consultant Neurologist at the Queen Square Private Consulting Rooms


My wife and I have met numerous doctors in our time, but rarely one whom immediately inspired in us such complete trust as did Dr Turner (Consultant Neurologist). We felt huge comfort in his professional judgement and also noted his very compassionate approach to patients. He really cares about them and personified, for us, the ideal doctor.
