Highly Advanced Epilepsy Surgery at World-class Hospitals in India

Epilepsy occurs when permanent changes in brain tissue cause the brain to be too excitable or jumpy. The brain sends out abnormal signals. This results in repeated, unpredictable seizures. The type of seizure depends on the part of the brain affected and cause of epilepsy. Symptoms vary from person to person. Common causes of epilepsy are stroke or transient ischemic attack, dementia (Alzheimer’s disease), traumatic brain injury, infections, including brain abscess, meningitis, encephalitis, Brain Tumor etc.

Epilepsy is a condition that can be well controlled in a vast majority of patients. However, 5-10% patients do not achieve adequate seizure control despite trial of best anti-epileptic drug combinations. Such patients are categorized as having refractory or intractable Epilepsy. These patients require special evaluation for treatments other than medical management alone.

Epilepsy surgery can be especially beneficial to patients who have seizures associated with structural brain abnormalities, such as benign brain tumors, malformations of blood vessels, and strokes. Epilepsy treatment has evolved to include consideration of the patient’s quality of life, not just the number of seizures. Both continued seizures and high doses of medication impose costs on all areas of a person’s life—intellectual, psychological, social, educational, and employment. The individualized approach that should be used when prescribing seizure medicines is carried over to the surgical treatment of epilepsy. State-of-the-art technology is applied to perform the safest and least-invasive procedure that will help the patient to achieve the highest possible quality of life.
