Depends: Meeting with the neurosurgeon likely suggests that you have already had a thorough work-up by an epilepsy neurologist who is likely recommending surgery either for intractable seizures or an identified lesion that is causing seizures. You should find out as much as you can as to the type of surgery and what they are trying to accomplish. You should also find out about the actual surgery specifics.
