Brain Surgery for Epilepsy: What Does It Entail?

Brain surgery of any kind is heavily involved and very technical. When it comes to treating epilepsy through brain surgery, it takes a very skilled set of hands to ensure your health and wellness is preserved and the epilepsy surgery is successful. We first go through a series of tests to see exactly where the origin point of your epilepsy condition may be. From there, we focus on a strategic approach to ensure we’re not altering any pertinent brain matter which may affect certain speech patterns, mobility, or anything in between which is vital for your daily lifestyle. After verifying the procedure can be completed safely, the next step will be to remove the part of the brain which is causing your seizures to occur. This will be completed by our board-certified neurosurgeons who have completed many of these same surgeries with an excellent success rate. If, for whatever reason, we are unable to remove the part of the brain causing your seizures, we will be sure to exercise another approach consisting of containing the seizure and preventing the spread of the abnormal tissue area causing the seizures to occur. In addition to modifying the brain, we may also install a vagal nerve stimulator underneath the skin in your chest area to send pulses of electricity to the brain, thus helping to prevent seizures as well. Altogether, there are many options available for your seizure condition and we will always choose the route which provides the most benefit to you as the patient.
