In brief: Yes

There was a recent randomized study in the United States called the rose study that evaluated radiosurgery (gamma knife), compared with open surgery for temporal lobe epilepsy.
The results are not fully available, but gamma knife therapy may be considered as an option for this type of epilepsy.
