About the Event

Brain surgery for seizures has been an option for many people, especially those with focal epilepsy, where their seizures start in one specific area of the brain. But, people with epilepsy average 19 years of living with seizures before surgery is even considered by their doctor. Numerous studies show that stopping seizures sooner can reduce negative affects to the brain caused by seizures.

Many people with epilepsy, for whom surgery is an option, are worried about both the short and long term effects of surgery: Will their seizures stop? Will it cause other issues? Will it improve their quality of life overall?

Hear from some of the top epilepsy specialists in the country, as they navigate you through the path of determining whether a person with epilepsy could become a surgical candidate, and what are the chances of that surgery working?

Doors open at 8:00 AM for Registration and a Continental Breakfast.

$25 per person.
