Hi @jruza,

A while ago, you had a question about your son who has SCN1A mutation with GEFMS+ and would someone with intractable epilepsy be a good candidate for surgery.

We brought your question to #AsktheMayoMom about Pediatric Epilepsy Surgery, a video discussion with Dr. Angela Mattke and Dr. Nick Wetjen from Mayo Clinic.

Here is their video response: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/webinar/askthemayomom-about-pediatric-epilepsy-surgery/

Jen, how is your son doing?
