Dr Jukka Peltola is a Neurologist at Tampere University Hospital, Department of neurology, neurosurgery and rehabilitation, Tampere, Finland, where he is currently a deputy chief physician and consultant neurologist.
While tonic-clonic seizures are the most commonly recognized, approximately 60% of patients with epilepsy actually have partial-onset seizures, with one side of the brain being affected. While clinicians regularly see patients with partial-onset seizures, in both the community or office setting, it is often challenging to determine what the type of epilepsy is being experienced and which treatment should be administered. Written by a Dr Jukka Peltola, a renowned key thought leader, this concise high-quality pocket-sized book will be aimed at educating non-specialists how to accurately diagnose and classify partial-onset seizures, with a special focus on currently available and emerging treatments.
