What About Surgery? Part 1 | Return to Video List
When should epilepsy patients consider surgery as treatment for seizures? In Part One, Making the Decision, Dr. Peter Weber explores who should consider corrective surgery as treatment for epilepsy and what qualifies or disqualifies a patient with recurring seizures for surgical treatment. Dr. Weber is Surgical Director of the Epilepsy Program at CPMC and a Professional Advisory Board Member for the Epilepsy Foundation of Northern California. If I do consider corrective epilepsy surgery such as a temporal lobectomy, what actually happens before, during, and after the surgery? In Part Two, Explaining the Operation, Dr. Peter Weber walks through a typical surgery and discusses the procedure, risks, rewards, and common questions.
