Description

Drug-resistant temporal epilepsy can now be treated with minimally invasive Stereotactic Laser Amygdalohippocampectomy (SLAH).

This same technology also is being used to treat certain brain tumors, further expanding treatment options for children.

The state-of-the art technology allows patients to remain neurologically intact and be discharged home within one day of the surgery.

The technology dramatically can reduce risks, morbidities and length of hospital stay.
