Types of Epilepsy Surgery – Mayo Clinic


Mayo Clinic neurosurgeons discuss the various types of epilepsy surgery. Visit 🤍 to learn more about epilepsy care at Mayo Clinic or to request an appointment. The most common procedure is the removal of the anterior temporal lobe for patients with drug-resistant focal epilepsy. Some epilepsy surgeries directly eliminate the spot in the brain where seizure is coming from and others indirectly work to minimize or eliminate seizure. The key to successful epilepsy surgery comes down to localization, or the ability for a medical team to pinpoint the exact origin or source of the seizures within the brain. Responsive neurostimulators may be an option for patients whose seizure point may be identified, but are not in an area that can be safely removed. Additionally, vagus nerve stimulators or deep brain stimulation may be options in order to prevent seizures. There are other types of procedures designed to identify the exact pinpoint by recording activity within the brain. Ultimately, patients should consult with a neurosurgeon and care team to discuss the right type of surgery for their specific type of epilepsy. Mayo Clinic in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota are all Level 4 Epilepsy Centers, with the most advanced diagnostic and treatment options available. Mayo Clinic neurosurgeons work with teams of other specialists in order to create a treatment plan that is individualized for each patient.

Epilepsy Surgery Side Effects Misconceptions – Mayo Clinic


Dr. Richard Zimmerman, a neurosurgeon at Mayo Clinic, discusses some epilepsy surgery side effects, recovery and common questions. Visit 🤍 to request an appointment to learn more about epilepsy surgery at Mayo Clinic. Curative epilepsy surgeries remove a bad portion of the brain. Because brain tissue is removed, many patients have questions about the epilepsy surgery outcomes or side effects. Dr. Zimmerman discusses some questions about epilepsy surgery including: - Will I know my family? - Will I forget things from my past? - Will I still be the same person? - Will I be left in a vegetative state? - Will I be out of work for a long period of time? With the latest advances in brain mapping and intraoperative monitoring, neurosurgeons at comprehensive epilepsy centers like Mayo Clinic are able to more precisely pinpoint the root cause of the brain in order to preserve normal functioning areas and reduce complications. Additionally, new surgical techniques including minimally invasive surgery can help patients reduce their recovery time.

Pediatric Epilepsy Surgery – Mayo Clinic


Continued seizures in children with epilepsy may hinder development but treatment options exist beyond medication. Visit 🤍 for more information on epilepsy care at Mayo Clinic or to request an appointment. Dr. Lily Wong-Kisiel, neurologist who specializes in pediatric epilepsy, explains how continued seizures in children may limit learning and social development. Dr. Wong-Kisiel also describes the benefits of surgical treatment for pediatric epilepsy. In children who have tried more than two epileptic drugs and still have seizures that are uncontrolled or not fully controlled, the likelihood of having another medication work is less than 5%. In general there is a diverse cause for epilepsy that begins in childhood. Children with seizures that result from congenital malformations may be more suitable candidates for epilepsy surgery. These malformations may be large or subtle and difficult to detect on traditional MRI. Surgery is not the last option for children who have seizures, particularly those who have a MRI abnormality. Surgery can have a significant positive impact on controlling seizures, as well as neurodevelopment for children. Neuroplasticity in children is greater than adults, which is why earlier surgical intervention may be favorable.

Epilepsy Surgery Leads to Seizure Freedom | Duke Health


Is epilepsy surgery right for you? 🤍 Andrew Vandenberg had suffered from seizures since he was a child. He was able to control his epilepsy with medications through adolescence, but after suffering three or four seizures over one summer, Vandenberg knew he needed more than medication. Vandenberg came to Duke Health and met with epileptologist, Matthew Luedke, MD. Duke offers comprehensive epilepsy treatment to reduce or eliminate seizures. Although medications control seizures in many people with epilepsy, some require more advanced care if their seizures remain uncontrolled, if they are experiencing unwanted side effects from medications, or if they have other concerns. If the seizure focus, the area where your seizures originate, can be determined and destroyed or removed, the chance of eliminating seizures altogether is higher with surgery than with other treatment methods. After undergoing testing it was determined that Vandenberg was eligible for epilepsy surgery. Today, he is seizure-free and has even obtained his driver's license. 00:00 Intro 00:32 What is medications don't control my seizures? 01:03 Is epilepsy surgery right for me? 02:17 What is it like to be seizure-free?

Stephanie's epilepsy surgery at Memorial Neuroscience Institute with Dr. Christopher DeMassi


The epilepsy team with Memorial Neuroscience Institute successfully completed its first use of a minimally invasive robotic device that helps pinpoint the origin of epileptic seizures on a patient. The device, now in full use at Memorial Regional Hospital, is called a Robotized Surgical Assistant, or ROSA. With assistance from the robot, neurosurgeons only need to make small, precise incisions in the scalp and skull to place electrodes deep in the brain and investigate where seizures are triggered.

Thermal Ablation Surgery for Seizures (LITT)


This video provides an overview of thermal ablation surgery for seizures. Thermal ablation is also called laser interstitial thermal therapy or LITT procedure. It is a type of epilepsy surgery that involves placing a small probe in the area of the brain where seizures start. An MRI is used to guide the probe. The probe uses heat to "ablate" (destroy) the area causing the seizures. Northwestern Medicine Comprehensive Epilepsy Center offers the full range of treatment options for epilepsy and seizure disorders, including LITT. nm.org/epilepsy

Living With Epilepsy | Hailey's Epilepsy Surgery Story


Hailey had her first seizure when she was just 18 months old. By the time she was a toddler, she was having 30 to 40 seizures a day. Diagnosed with medically intractable treatment resistant epilepsy, Hailey’s family says they lived life in a bubble because they never knew when the next seizure would come or how long it would last. Desperate to see their daughter’s quality of life improve, Hailey’s parents turned to Nationwide Children’s Hospital Level 4 Epilepsy Center – a program offering advanced epilepsy surgery services. In February of 2017, Hailey underwent intracranial monitoring. This two stage surgery involves mapping the brain to determine the exact location of seizure onset. In order to capture this vital information, neurosurgeons removed a piece of Hailey’s skull and placed electrodes directly on her brain. Over the next week, Hailey’s team of neurologists mapped each seizure to prepare for her second surgery – when they would remove the area of the brain causing the seizures. While Hailey's road to recovery following epilepsy surgery was long, it proved to be a life-saving solution. Today Hailey remains seizure free.

Considering Epilepsy Surgery – Mayo Clinic


Epilepsy surgery can produce dramatic results for some patients struggling with seizures. Visit 🤍 to request an appointment to learn more about epilepsy surgery. Comprehensive epilepsy centers help patients weigh the risks and benefits of surgery. Whether a place has a multidisciplinary team of surgeons, neurologists, epileptologists, anesthesiologists, neuro critical care available to help with the full care of a patient is important. Additionally, teams at a comprehensive epilepsy center can help weigh the risks of surgery against the potential benefit and quality of life outcome for each individual patient. Working with a comprehensive center, like Mayo Clinic, patients should ask probing questions including: - What is the specific type of surgery for my condition? - What will the experience be like? - What should the timing be?

Epilepsy has a profound impact on people’s lives. It can impact work and daily life. Visit 🤍 to learn more about epilepsy care at Mayo Clinic or to request an appointment. Select patients can benefit from surgery for epilepsy. For those patients whose seizures are not fully controlled by medication alone, they may benefit from discussing surgery as a treatment option. For some patients, having surgery to control their epilepsy means regaining their ability to drive, perform well in school, and generally gain their independence. Surgery may also reduce the worry that epilepsy patients have that another seizure is around the corner. At Mayo Clinic, neurologists and neurosurgeons work with other multidisciplinary experts to apply the latest in research to personalize care for each individual patient. These innovations and inventions in epilepsy care can transform the lives of patients living with epilepsy.

Epilepsy Surgery: Nicholas' Memorial Journey


Physicians at Memorial Neuroscience Institute in Hollywood recently performed their first craniotomy, a two-pronged surgery to remove a portion of the brain causing seizures. The patient, Nicholas, had suffered from epileptic seizures for more than decade and had gone through more than ten medications with little results. Given the choice of receiving Vagus Nerve Stimulation therapy, a pacemaker-like device that sends signals to the brain via the vagus nerve, or the craniotomy, Nicholas went with the latter. The 33-year-old, who also has a congenital heart defect and a pacemaker, didn’t want any more devices put in his body. “It’s wonderful that I’m not going to have a seizure again,” Fotopoulos said. “I have a new chance in life.” Prior to the surgery, he had lost jobs and the ability to drive his car due to his seizures, in which he would zone out for a brief period of time, twitch and have violent movements if the events lasted long enough. The surgery, he added, has given him the opportunity to start fresh. He’s now engaged and wants to have kids. “In the whole West Palm, Broward and north Miami-Dade County, there’s no single advanced epilepsy center that is capable of providing basic services for patients with epilepsy,” said Dr. Tarek Zakaria, a neurologist at Memorial Healthcare System who was formerly with the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine. “Most of these patients will have to go somewhere else to have very basic epilepsy workups and treatment.”

Sam's Journey with Epilepsy Surgery


During the summer of 2013, Children's pediatric neurosurgeon, Joshua Chern, M.D., Ph.D., performed a two-part surgery to help alleviate Sam's seizures. Sam has been seizure-free since his surgery in August. In the fifth grade, Sam was diagnosed with a brain tumor, the first sign of which came in the form of seizures. He had surgery to remove the tumor, which revealed that it was not cancerous. Unfortunately, three months later, the seizures started again. At this point, Sam was diagnosed with epilepsy, a central nervous system disorder. Sam was put on medication to combat the seizures, which was effective but made him lethargic. Sam stayed on the medication all the way through seventh grade. Two years after the initial surgery to remove the tumor, Sam came to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta for a second surgery with Joshua Chern, M.D., Ph.D., a pediatric neurosurgeon. Dr. Chern performed a temporal lobe resection, a form of brain surgery that removes the part of the brain that produces seizures. Four weeks later, however, Sam experienced more seizures. During the summer of 2013, Dr. Chern performed a two-part surgery to help alleviate Sam's seizures. In the first surgery, a grid was implanted to monitor Sam's brain activity. The part of the brain causing the seizures was removed in the second surgery. Sam has been seizure-free since the last surgery in August 2013. He is still on seizure medications, but that medication will gradually be reduced during the next two years. Visit 🤍choa.org/epilepsy to learn more about Children's Epilepsy Center.
