Epilepsy Surgeries

Epilepsy Surgeries

Patients suffering from recurrent seizures, refractory to medications may need surgery to reduce the frequency of seizure or to cut down on the dose and number of medications. In order to achieve a cure from epilepsy, it is important to identify the exact focus from where the seizure is originating from the brain, which generally requires a multitude of tests and assessment by experts. At Aster RV we have the latest equipment in terms of EEG monitoring, 3 Tesla MRI, and facilities to perform video EEG, electrocorticography, stereotactic EEG, which greatly aides in the decision-making process and performing a successful surgery.
