Program Description: 

For some patients with drug-resistant epilepsy surgical removal of the region of brain that is causing their seizures can be an effective treatment. However, referrals for epilepsy surgery by general neurologists are nationally recognized to be much lower that would be expected from the prevalence of drug-resistant epilepsy. The detailed review of pre-surgical work-up data that is conducted in our multidisciplinary conference by a team that includes epileptologists, neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, neuropsychologists, and social work, provides an ideal forum to educate neurologists and health care providers about which patients would be good candidates to refer for pre-surgical evaluation.
