Surgery for epilepsy is an intervention that is performed when the patients with epilepsy not adequately respond to the drugs, which happens about 20% of cases. That is why their quality of life is severely affected by this disease. The surgical technique used to depend on each patient and involves removing part of the brain that produces these epileptic seizures provided they do not get injured brain areas necessary for the proper functioning of the body. It should be noted that there is also a benign tumor called an acoustic neuroma, which grows on the nerve that connects the ear to the brain, and can cause epileptic buds, which should not be confused with this disease of chronic manner.
