Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Patients,
I am pleased to welcome you to the website of the Department of Epileptology here at the University Hospital Bonn.
For over 40 years, we here in our specialized centre have been treating patients with new-onset or chronic epilepsies, advising those with unclear seizure disorders, and conducting research into the causes, treatment options, and complications of epilepsies. Since its founding, our Department has achieved a leading, internationally renowned position in epilepsy and brain research by closely linking clinical care and science.
On our website, patients will find all the important information they need for their visit here: from instructions on how to make an appointment, to an itemized checklist which outlines what is required for inpatient treatment. We also have information brochures on important topics related to epilepsy available for download.
Our many friends and supporters are also kept up-to-date regarding the current status of our scientific work groups. The diverse research activities in our Department have been generously supported for many years by the Verein zur Förderung der Epilepsieforschung e.V. (Association for the Promotion of Epilepsy Research). We are happy for any and all support!
Finally, we have provided information concerning our public events (e.g. the Bonn Epilepsy Forum for patients), the academic teaching offered in the various courses of study, and continuing medical education and training.
We encourage you to provide us with any suggestions you might have for our website!
On behalf of all our employees,
Prof. Dr. Rainer Surges, MHBA
Head of the Department of Epileptology
