A neurologist is the right person to decide on the appropriate Epilepsy Surgery treatment, when the patient fails to respond to regular medication. If the brain seizures do not stop through medicated epilepsy treatment, then surgery is attempted. There are different types of surgery performed on the brain, but the basic purpose remains the same. The procedures are aimed at isolating and removing parts of the brain that cause the epileptic seizures. Once the doctor has concluded that surgery is the best solution, then a date for the procedure is set and the operation is carried out. Being a critical process, epilepsy surgery is done under general anesthesia. In case of lobe resection surgery, the brain tissues in the seizure-focus quarter of the brain, is cut off and dressed up.
Brain surgeries can consume up to few hours and the patient will have to be hospitalized few days after the surgery. He is also kept under observation before discharge. The doctor may advise continuation of medication, may keep reviewing the strength and frequency of the dosage, depending on the rate of recovery of the patient.
In many successful cases, the brain seizures can completely stop after the surgery. In some others, the frequency and intensity of the epileptic seizures may reduce. There are also cases of “reoperation” to ensure complete removal of all offending tissues.
