Professor Kluger’s path to epileptology lay through pediatrics and neuropediatrics. He is distinguished by his holistic approach to the problems of children with epilepsy and their parents, including the scientific, clinical, and emotional points of view. As a medical student, he worked in a South African leprosarium and was later involved in vaccination campaigns in the so called Third World countries. Being a pediatrician by vocation, he worked in a number of child clinics in southern Germany, meanwhile acquiring additional medical qualifications in psychotherapy, sports medicine, EEG, homeopathy, Bobat-therapy. His wide expertise provide for a comprehensive approach to dealing with pediatric neurology disorders.
In epilepsy treatment, Professor Kluger adheres above all to the “First, do no harm” principle. Thus, his drug therapy recommendations are aimed at both stopping the seizures and avoiding side effects as much as possible, as well as eventually coming off medications at all. The professor considers the family to be a key participant in the overall treatments process, which is why he conducts lecture series for parents.

An epileptic seizure is not always accompanied by convulsions. Also, not every convulsion is a sign of epilepsy. To avoid misdiagnosis and incorrect treatment, a comprehensive examination is required, including a detailed anamnesis, evaluation of clinical symptoms and imaging tests. Important notice: diagnostic procedures should not be delayed!
