Epilepsy Surgery

Epilepsy surgery is performed to treat seizures that are uncontrolled with medication. About 30% of people with epilepsy are not controlled with medication and are considered medically intractable. “Medically intractable seizures” are defined as persistent seizures despite trials of three or more appropriate antiepileptic drugs, alone or in combination. People with medically intractable seizures may be candidates for surgical treatment to achieve better seizure control.
