In addition to achieving short-term seizure control, it is important to understand the long term effects of epilepsy surgery on seizures, memory and quality of life
We are following
up individuals who had epilepsy surgery as far back as 1990, and are
determining the long-term effects in terms of control of seizures, use
of medications, and effects on memory, other cognitive functions and
quality of life. 75% of those who become seizure free after epilepsy
surgery continue to take antiepileptic medication.

Studies of autonomic function in different forms of partial epileptic seizures are underway on the EEG telemetry unit.
