People with epilepsy may be confronted with various problems beyond the actual medical condition. They may experience restrictions in school, on the job and regarding their driving licence. Patients may benefit from medical or occupational rehabilitation procedures. This in particular is of importance for patients who had undergone epilepsy surgery.
In the Epilepsy-Center Berlin-Brandenburg, patients with epilepsy are consulted on the above mentioned aspects by highly qualified and specifically trained social workers.
