Epilepsy surgery

We offer treatment options for epilepsy when medication hasn't improved your condition.

Epilepsy surgery is a surgery performed to either remove a part of the brain where seizures originate or place a special device capable of sending electrical stimulation to areas of the brain where seizures originate. While epilepsy surgery is not always the first line of treatment, it may be an option for patients whose seizures have been otherwise unresponsive to medication. Surgery is typically successful for patients whose seizure activity occurs in a focused area of the brain; however, there are also surgical options available to treat more complex or diffuse seizures.
