A 32-year-old member asked:

Is there a brain surgery to help with seizures?

Surgery 4 seizures: Yes, brain surgery is done to help with certain types of epilepsy. Seizures that are very difficult to treat are one indicator for this treatment. Adults with seizures that originate in a small part of the brain (focal onset) are also candidates for this.
A 35-year-old member asked:

What do you think about brain surgery to help with seizures?

1 doctor answer2 doctors weighed in

When to do it: Not everyone should have surgery to control seizures. People who have failed 3 or more medications that should prevent seizures, and who have a focus or origin of their seizures (partial onset) may be candidates for epilepsy surgery. People with generalized epilepsy may find a vagal nerve stimulator to be helpful. Does that answer your question?
