The risks of drug-resistant seizures

Drug-resistant seizures can be catastrophic to a child’s development, especially if they begin in infancy. Intractable epilepsy can cause development to freeze in time or regress significantly. Epilepsy surgery is no longer considered a last resort for children with refractory epilepsy, but there are risks associated with brain surgery, some which can be significant. We help you understand the risks and benefits of various brain surgeries to stop seizures so that you can make an informed decision about whether brain surgery is right for your child.
