Specializes in Neurosurgery

Cured?: In the hands of an epilepsy specialized neurologist and a specialty trained neurosurgeon, it can be a well treated condition if the focus is truly in the medial temporal lobe and it can be resected. Only those specialists can tell you if the disease is treatable or possibly without symptoms- cured is the difficult word.
