The MGH Epilepsy Service offers evaluation for epilepsy surgery for patients with structural lesions and patients whose seizures have not been well controlled with medical management. Evaluation is usually directed by one of our experienced epileptologists, working with a multidisciplinary team including neurosurgeons, neuroradiologist, neuropsychologists and other health professionals. The links below provide a detailed overview of the process for health professionals, and a handbook for patients.
