Founded in 2019, EEG Africa emerges as a healthcare beacon in Durban, South Africa, thanks to the passion and expertise of Dr. Amith Keshave and Dr. Smita Bhagwan. This dynamic husband-wife duo, consisting of a pediatric neurologist and an adult neurologist, share a deep commitment to revolutionizing the support provided to epilepsy patients. Their mission encompasses precise diagnosis, improved management, enhanced educational outreach, and increased public awareness.
Revolutionizing the Diagnostic Process
At the core of their mission lies the commitment to accuracy. Accurate diagnosis is the linchpin in epilepsy care, as missing seizures can have dire consequences for patients, while misdiagnoses can result in unnecessary medication regimens with undesired side effects. EEG Africa's primary objective is to deliver top-quality Electroencephalograms (EEGs) for patients of all ages, with a special focus on children. Performing EEGs on infants and children presents a unique set of challenges. These encompass different head sizes and shapes as children grow, newborns' restlessness, crying infants, and the energy of hyperactive children, all of which require specialized care.
Enhancing Quality of Life through Sleep Studies
Beyond their epilepsy care initiatives, EEG Africa offers comprehensive sleep studies for both adults and children. These studies play a pivotal role in accurately diagnosing sleep disorders, which are intricately connected to a range of chronic health issues and have a profound impact on a person's quality of life.
