DBS for drug resistant Epilepsy

For many patients with epilepsy, their seizures are not controlled by medication and they are unsuitable or have failed conventional surgery. For these patients, DBS may help. In a collaboration between major epilepsy units in Melbourne (at RMH, St Vincents and the Austin), we are assessing which patients with epilepsy are likely to respond to DBS – and how to tailor the choice of brain target to the individual.
