My Neurologist brought it up the beginning of this year. I checked into this and when seeing My Neurologist again, He said No. He was with a board of Neurosurgeons and Doctors. They discussed My chart and the head Neurosurgeon thought it wouldn't be good. Since having 2 Temporal Lobe Surgeries using this could be bad. They voted it down but another Temporal Lobe Surgery would be better. I said no!

I was dealing with epilepsy for over 20 years. I tried at least 15 different meds, none of which made a difference in my seizures. Visualase MRI-Guided Laser Ablation surgery was the best decision I ever made.

I haven't had a seizure since the surgery (before surgery, seizures were every week). My neurologist will begin weaning me from Lamictal in October.
