Epilepsy Treatment

Epileptic seizures could be as a consequence of temporal lobe epilepsy (about 80%) or due to various brain conditions such as gliosis, low-grade tumors and vascular malformations in the brain. Overall 70 % of the patients respond to medications but for rest, 30% patient’s surgery is the solution.

Epilepsy surgery is a surgical procedure performed in the brain to control seizures due to above-mentioned conditions and improve the overall quality of life. It is usually considered when medications fail to control seizures.

Temporal lobe epilepsy (partial/localized) is the commonest form of epilepsy for which love resection procedure is done. The brain tissues in the lobe area are cut away to remove the seizure focus. Detailed brain mapping is performed prior to the surgery by our neurologist to ensure that only abnormal tissue is removed. In OT sophisticated technologies such as stereotactic implantation of electrodes is done to remove as little as tissue possible, as safely as possible, to eliminate seizures.
