EEG Africa was founded in 2019 by Dr Amith Keshave, paediatric neurologist, and his wife, Dr Smita Bhagwan, adult neurologist in Durban, South Africa.
Both husband and wife are passionate about Epilepsy and their ultimate goal is to improve the care of patients with Epilepsy, through assisting with diagnosis, management, education and creating public awareness.
It all starts with an accurate diagnosis! Missing seizures can be detrimental to health and overdiagnosing epilepsy can lead to years of unwanted medication and side effects. Our primary aim is to provide the highest quality EEGs for patients of all ages, with special focus on paediatric patients. EEGs play an important part in the diagnosis and management of seizures and epilepsy. Performing EEGs in babies and children can be challenging – different head shapes and sizes as children grow, wriggly newborns, crying babies and hyperactive children.
We also provide sleep studies to both children and adults, assisting in the accurate diagnosis of sleep disorders. Sleep disorders are linked to multiple chronic health problems and greatly impact quality of life and health.
Providing gold standard monitoring of seizures and sleep disorders across all ages to help guide diagnosis and management with special focus on:
* EEG monitoring in newborn babies
* Seizures and epilepsy in children
* Sleep disorders in adults and children
