4. Epilepsy Surgery •  Medications can control seizures well in 70% of people. But in 30% of patients, medicines are not effective and in few of these patients, brain surgery to remove the focus causing epilepsy may be a good option for seizure freedom or even a significant reduction in the disabling seizures. •  Epilepsy surgery has been an accepted form of treatment for over 50 years. •  With advances in MRI techniques and new surgical techniques along with ways of identifying areas to be removed, Epilepsy surgery procedures being done with good success. •  Surgery can be performed on both children and adults. However, it is not a suitable treatment for everyone who has epilepsy or for everyone where medications are ineffective.

6. Who should undergo Epilepsy Surgery •  To find out whether someone is suitable for this type of surgery a number of things will need to be taken into account by the consultant Neurologist or epileptologist. •  Surgery will be considered if the person has no other medical problem which would make them unsuitable for this type of surgery and anti-epileptic drug treatment has been tried but still the seizures are uncontrolled. •  The seizures should be arising from one localized area of the brain and the person's ability to function normally should not be affected by removing this part of the brain. •  The affected part of the brain can be removed without causing further damage to any other part of the brain and the areas of the brain responsible for speech, sight, movement or hearing are not close to the part of the brain to be removed.

7. Results •  Some people may experience seizures just after the operation due to temporary swelling. This does not mean that the operation has failed. •  Depending on the person’s own doctor, it may be some time before the patient can start reducing their medication Up to 75 to 80% of patients notice a dramatic reduction in the number of seizures after surgery, especially temporal lobectomy and many finding that their seizures appear to have stopped. •  They can then look at reducing or stopping their medication in consultation with their doctor. •  Most of the times the medicines should be continued up to one year after surgery after which a gradual reduction of the medicines can be done.
