Epilepsy surgery is a treatment used to help control seizures when seizures are not controlled by medications.
Epilepsy surgery is “neurosurgery,” which means it is surgery involving the brain. Doctors who do epilepsy surgery are neurosurgeons. Neurosurgeons who specialize in the care of people with seizures are found at comprehensive epilepsy centers.
There are many different types of epilepsy surgery. The type of surgery recommended will depend on many factors. The key factors are the type of seizures and where they start in the brain.
