Has anyone had thermal ablation surgery? What were your results?

Hi Sue, welcome to Connect.
Here is a video of Dr. Jerry J. Shih, neurologist and director of the Comprehensive Epilepsy Program at Mayo Clinic in Florida talks about the newer treatment options for patients with seizures and epilepsy, including laser thermal ablation.

And this video about a patient who had laser thermal ablation treatment.

Are you a candidate for this procedure, Sue? Or have you already had it done?

Hi Colleen, thanks for the information. My 20 year old son is the potential candidate. We will be meeting with a surgeon in a couple weeks.
