Epilepsy Surgery

This comprehensive Epilepsy Surgery Service for patients with medically intractable epilepsy has been established in Sheffield about 10 years ago.

The multidisciplinary program draws referrals from the whole Yorkshire and Trent Regions and from around the country.

The whole range of investigative interventions are offered including invasive and non-invasive intracranial monitoring. Safety and efficacy of surgery is supported by the state-of-the art intraoperative neuronavigation.

The Vagus Nerve Stimulator (NCP®) programme is one of the largest in the country.

For appropriate cases Gamma Knife® is available in the Department.

The group is supported by a dedicated team of specialist nurses and other professionals. Specialist clinics, including those by nurse practitioners provide a friendly yet effective environment for these patients.
