ABSTRACT
Intractable epilepsy in early stages of life leads to devastating effects on brain development and permanent social setback. Significant proportion of these children have surgically remediable syndrome leading to chronic intractable epilepsy. Conventional approach of medical line of treatment in surgically remediable syndromes produces delay, leading to decline in cognition and scholastic performance. Enough expertise and understanding exists to advise early surgery in children with surgically remediable epilepsy syndromes. We discuss the surgically remediable syndromes, options and advances in epilepsy surgery.
