What is Epilepsy?

Epilepsy, a brain disorder, is characterized by repeated seizures. A seizure occurs when the brain's electrical activity changes suddenly, altering the patient's behavior.

How is the Procedure Performed?

The treatments for epilepsy include:

  • Anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs)
  • Brain surgery to remove a small part of the brain that's causing the seizures
  • Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) or Deep brain stimulation (DBS) puts a small electrical device inside the body that helps control seizures

Some people need treatment for life. But the therapy might stop if seizures disappear over time.

Who is the Right Doctor for Epilepsy Treatment?

A neurologist can best diagnose and treat epilepsy. Some neurologists take advanced training and become epileptologists, specialists in diagnosing and treating epilepsy.

What is the Usual Success Rate for this Procedure?

If a patient takes medications and has no seizure in the first year post temporal lobe surgery, the likelihood of being seizure-free at two years is 87-90%. In case of no seizure in two years, the possibility of being seizure-free is 95% at five years and 82% at ten years.

What is included in the cost of Epilepsy Treatment?

The cost of Epilepsy treatment includes:

  • Preoperative diagnostic tests cost, some of which may include MRI, PET, Neurological examination, etc.
  • Surgery cost
  • Types of epilepsy surgery (Focal Resection, Temporal Lobe Resection, Frontal Lobe Resection, Parietal and occipital Lobe Resection, Lesionectomy, etc.)
  • Post-Operative cost (depends on the number of follow-up sessions)
  • Medicine cost 
  • Patient's hospital stay 

What are the factors affecting cost of Epilepsy Treatment?

The overall cost of the procedure also varies based on the patient's condition and preferences. Some of these factors are:

  • Type of hospital and room opted (General, Twin sharing, or single room)
  • The severity of the disease
  • Post-surgical complication, if it happens (such as Hemorrhage, Infection, Brain tissue injury, etc.)
  • Cost of Blood products (if required)
  • An extended stay at the Hospital
  • Cost of Accommodation during follow-ups, in case the patient is not a local resident
