Surgical Treatment - Request a Consultation
An estimated three million people in the United States have epilepsy; approximately one third of these patients do not respond to treatment with medications, and, unfortunately, the possibility of obtaining seizure freedom is lessened with each additional medication trial. Surgery can be a safe and highly effective alternative to excessive medication management.
Research has shown that surgical treatment of epilepsy consistently provides the best outcomes. We recommend that these patients with hard-to-treat cases of epilepsy, be evaluated by an epilepsy specialist. If you would like to refer a patient to our program, please click the link below.
