In brief: Yes and No

Temporal lobe epilepsy is a specific disease that may be helped by temporal lobe resection.
It may be easier to diagnose and offer treatment but the technical part of brain surgery is still the same.

In brief: It depends

Most epilepsy surgery centers are highly trained in temporal lobe surgery.
It is by far the more common epilepsy surgery, and is becoming very precise with careful mapping of foci and new laser techniques. Other epilepsy surgery is less common and therefore less easy to perform at most centers.
