They have been up and running for six months, but Covid-19 came in the way for the inauguration. Now Sahlgrenska Epilepsy Center is officially open, and ready to welcome patients from all over Sweden and other countries for rare and complex epileptic disorders.
The center represents Sweden in EpiCare, the European reference network for rare and complex epilepsies.
– The center is an important part of the hospital’s investment in highly specialized epilepsy care. If our skills are not enough, through the network we gain access to colleagues throughout the EU. In the same way, we contribute to the discussions when epilepsy experts from other EU countries have specific issues where we have the highest expertise. We want to make it easier for patients to benefit from our mutual expertise, both in Sweden and in Europe, which is the whole philosophy behind both the hospital’s investment in the Sahlgrenska Epilepsy Center and EpiCARE, says Kristina Malmgren, director and professor in Neurology.
