Epilepsy Surgery Webinar

Webinar Invitation: Epilepsy Surgery

Join us for the next in our series of Research Roundtable webinars when we’ll be hearing from the experts and people with lived experience on the topic of epilepsy surgery.

Sometimes epilepsy does not respond to medication and in some cases, surgery may be considered as a promising treatment option with the potential to control seizures. But surgery doesn’t come without risks and challenges. In this webinar, we’ll hear how world-leading research funded by Epilepsy Research UK has helped to improve surgery for people living with epilepsy and one person’s remarkable story of the difference it can make.

The session is open to everyone and will be held at 12pm on Tuesday 31st August. So, whether you are affected by epilepsy, researching epilepsy or just interested to learn more, we hope you can join us.
