At the Center for Epilepsy Surgery at Tufts Medical Center in downtown Boston, our goal is to help you or your child achieve freedom from seizures. Uncontrolled epilepsy can take a toll on your body, not to mention your quality of life. Every day we help patients just like you to reduce or even eliminate their seizures.
Deciding whether or not to undergo surgery can be stressful and confusing, and we want to help you through your decision. Your Tufts MC neurosurgeon will take the time to sit down with you to discuss your condition and carefully explain your treatment options. We'll share details about epilepsy surgery, review the risks and benefits and tell you what to expect during recovery.
In some cases, medication is not enough to control epilepsy. If your seizures always start in the same part of your brain, surgery may an option for you.
The Tufts MC Center for Epilepsy Surgery provides individualized treatment for adults and children who are seeking relief from seizures. Our services include:
We will work with you and your referring physician to determine the best option to help reduce your unique condition. Throughout your time in our care, you can rest assured that you're in excellent hands.
