The future of the treatment
Epilepsy is a disorder that is still little understood and often discriminated against.
We met the leading experts in the field and film the ground-breaking neurosurgery procedures with Mr Andrew McEvoy, a world-leading Consultant Neurosurgeon at The National Hospital for Neurology (NHNN) and Neurosurgery and Institute of Neurology (ION) in London.
Andrew McEvoy explained how the introduction of deep brain stimulation and viral vectors for gene therapy has transformed the management of epilepsy. We were at Queens Square Hospital, the first unit in the UK to have Brain Lab theatre suite and intraoperative MRI installed. The patient was scanned several times during the surgery.
The interventional MRI allows documentation of lesion resection prior to the termination of any surgical procedure and also allows the surgical navigation software to be recalibrated during the operation, making the procedure more accurate.
