Epilepsy is one of the common neurological disorders globally. Through this lecture series on “Demystifying Epilepsy: Current Treatment and Future Perspective”, we will learn the modern approach to diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy in India and Switzerland from two prominent epileptologists, Dr. PV Rai and Dr. P Satish Chandra.
This lecture series is brought in association with Indian Epilepsy Association (IEA). IEA has 25 branches all over India and its mission is to create awareness about epilepsy among the general public. The lectures will be conducted in a non-medical language.

Lavigny/Vaud that follow the western European model. Dr. P Satish Chandra will talk about ‘Epilepsy : Indian Perspective‘ including certain geographically specific epilepsy syndromes in India and the effectiveness of research in the understanding of these seizures and management.
