What is the best treatment for very severe seizures? I mean on patients that have drop attacks and have poor response on classic medications. I have heard that certain special brain surgery can be performed but am not familiar with details. I guess that there are innovations in treatment of patients with severe debilitating form of epilepsy. Please post.

Surgical procedure that cuts pathways between right and left sides of brain is performed in patients that suffer severe forms of epilepsy. That way seizures limit on one side of brain and lessen their severity. This is performed in patients with seizures that involve large area of brain. Cutting nerve pathways, spreading of seizure wave is limited. Multiple subpial transaction is one of procedures that give satisfactory improvements.
