Cutting-Edge Epilepsy Surgery With Less Cutting: New Techniques Are Changing Kids’ Lives

Pediatric neurosurgeon Kurtis Auguste, MD, who directs the UCSF Pediatric Epilepsy Surgery Program, discusses in-use options that boost accuracy and safety for managing seizures. Helping PCPs counsel appropriately following an epilepsy diagnosis, Auguste describes an implantable device that reduces seizures when resection isn’t possible; MR-guided laser ablation that leaves no scar; EEGs that are less painful and more precise; and imaging technologies that help kids feel less afraid and more engaged.
