When Medications Fail - Presurgical Evaluation in Drug Resistant Epilepsy

This webinar orginally aired on October 24, 2018. Approximate length: 60 minutes.
Are you living with seizures or epilepsy? Do you care for or about a person living with epilepsy?
While not everyone can get complete seizure control, there are options beyond medicines that may help. This webinar discusses options when medicines don’t work.
Topics that will be addressed include:
  • What is “drug resistant epilepsy”? How do I know if that means me?
  • What can I do if medicines don’t work? Is there something else?
  • What tests will be done to see if surgery or a device could help me?
  • What are the steps in the journey to epilepsy surgery?
  • What emotional and social challenges should I consider and prepare for?
  • How do I manage expectations and find support?
