The MGH Epilepsy Service works closely with colleagues in Neurosurgery to treat medically refractory seizure disorders in children and adults.
The Epilepsy Surgery Program at Partners HealthCare System strives to serve the scientific, medical, psychological and social needs of individuals and families in order to make the experience of having epilepsy surgery as successful as possible.
This booklet was written to provide patients with a better understanding of epilepsy surgery and the elements of the presurgical evaluation. We have included excerpts from some of our patients who have attended our post-surgical discussion group over many years. Our hope is that their individual experiences will be informative to all of our patients on a more personal level.
