We may recommend surgery if your epileptic seizures cannot be controlled with medication. We will consider the frequency and severity of the seizures and your age, overall health and medical history before recommending surgery.

Overview

In certain cases, epilepsy surgery can improve your quality of life. Surgical options may involve either removing the part of your brain where the seizures originate or implanting a device in order to treat your condition. As a third surgical option, we may cut the pathway by which the seizures spread, confining them to a small part of your brain. Our goal will be to give you the best care possible.
