Surgery may be effective treatment for those who suffer from epilepsy

Recently, surgery has begun to be used as a way to correct epilepsy and new studies have shown that those who have the surgery done may go 10 years without having a seizure. Researchers have said that this shows promise to be an alternative way to treat the disorder.

On the first long-term study of the patients who are post-operative, researchers found that 82 percent of epilepsy patients that had the surgery went a year without seizures, after five years, 52 percent were still seizure-free and after 10 years 47 percent still had not experienced one.

One researcher stated that those who are unable to treat their epilepsy with medication may want to consider surgery. Nearly 50 million people across the country suffer from epilepsy.

Many pregnant women who suffer from the disorder are looking toward alternative route for treatment because the use of antidepressants during pregnancy has been tied to the development of multiple birth defects.
