There are many differences between children and adult patients regarding the selection of candidates for epilepsy surgery, decision about the timing of surgery, pre- and intra-surgical evaluation and follow-up. A comprehensive approach by an epilepsy surgery team consisting of pediatric neurologists, neurosurgeons and other medical staffs is absolutely necessary for successful surgical treatment of refractory childhood epilepsy and the improvement of the patient's quality of life.
