Medications can control seizures in most people with epilepsy, but they don’t operate for everyone. Nearly 30% of people using the drugs can’t tolerate the side effects. In some cases, brain surgery may be an alternative.
An operation on the brain can manage seizures and enhance your quality of life.
Surgery has 3main purposes:
Remove the region of the brain that effects seizures.
Disturb the nerve pathways that seizure movements take through your brain.
Implant a device to handle epilepsy.
