Deep Brain Stimulation: A New Treatment for Drug-Resistant Focal Epilepsy

In this talk, Dr. Friedman will review the results of clinical studies looking at the safety and efficacy of this treatment. He will discuss who is appropriate for this therapy and how deep brain stimulation fits in with other surgical and medical treatments that are currently available.
