Epilepsy Surgery

The UCLA Epilepsy Surgery Program utilizes a scientific protocol to localize and treat partial seizures and evaluating patient care at weekly team conferences. Evaluation for surgical treatment begins with Phase I, which includes continuous EEG telemetry and video monitoring. Phase II includes these modalities plus stereotactically-implanted depth electrodes or subdural grid electrodes. Many patients proceed to surgery without requiring Phase II.
