The Campus Bio-Medico University Hospital is a landmark for the treatment of epilepsy in central Italy. Recognised by ILAE, the Italian League Against Epilepsy, the UOC of Neurology guarantees the highest standards of diagnostic services provided to a large number of adults suffering from epilepsy. The recognition comes for the three-year period February 2022-February 2025 following ILAE's review of quality criteria for epilepsy centres.

“It is a recognition that gratifies our long-standing enormous commitment to people with epilepsy, but above all it certifies and guarantees the high quality of our work in this field. Today, people with epilepsy can be sure of finding the best treatment opportunities for their needs at the Campus Bio-Medico University Hospital”, explained Dr. Giovanni Assenza, head of the centre for the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy at the Campus Bio-Medico University Hospital and ILAE Coordinator for the Lazio and Abruzzo Macro-area.

The Campus Bio-Medico University Hospital contributes to patient care and assistance by providing consultations with neurologists who are specialised in treating epilepsy, in-depth diagnostics, assistance for comorbidities accompanying epilepsy, pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies, and ordinary hospitalisation in case of emergency.
