Hi everyone. My name is Paul. I had simple partials and gran mal seizures from age 9 until 25. In 2000 i was referred to the mayo clinic. There my life changed for ever. I met Dr. Greg cascino an epitologist. After a year of try meds i became a canidate for surgery. In october of 2001 i had a right temporal lobectomy and hippocampus removed.

Feel free to reach out to me with any questions you might have.
