For some children and youth living with epilepsy, epilepsy surgery may be a potential option for seizure control.
Our podcast on pediatric epilepsy surgery, entitled “Epilepsy Surgery in Children and Youth: The Benefits of Early Surgery”, features the expertise of Dr. Mary Connolly, MB, BCh, BAO, FRCP(C), FRCP(I), FRCP(Edin) who is a pediatric epileptologist at BC Children’s Hospital.
