Epilepsy treatment options include surgery, neurostimulators when medication isn't sufficient
Sometimes medications to treat epilepsy are not completely effective in controlling seizures. Neurologist Shahram Izadyar, MD, who cares for adults with epilepsy at Upstate University Hospital, discusses surgical options and the use of neurostimulators. He answers questions potential patients would likely ask and explains who would be good candidates for the procedures.
(Izadyar offers a general overview of epilepsy in a separate interview.)
