Patient recovered from epilepsy struck after 12 years Mumbai doctor removed part of brain causing seizures


Mumbai - 34-year-old lady from Mumbai Smita Trivedi (Name changed) working in a small private firm and she was suffering from epilepsy for 12 years. Many times due to headache and other problems she was not able to attend her office. At the age of 22 she suffered first epilepsy attack when she was in college and due to regular epilepsy she couldn’t complete her higher studies and now Smita has been taking 6 medicines every day for the last 5 years. When her husband approached Neurosurgeon Dr. Samir Parekh from Apex Hospitals in Kandivali for how to reduce daily medicines, the doctor suggested Brain Surgery because in this case medicine wasn’t able to control epilepsy. Giving more information about this unique medical case study Neurosurgeon Dr. Samir Parekh from Apex Hospitals, Kandivali said, “This patient was in panic mode due to epilepsy and she was not able to concentrate on her job. We did neurology and neuropsychology assessments. MRI brain and EEG showed origin of fits from the left side temporal lobe of the brain. So we decided to remove the temporal lobe on the left side of the brain (temporal lobectomy and removal of amygdala and hippocampus.) This Brain Surgery lasted for 1 hour and the post-surgery patient was fully conscious and talking and moving all 4 limbs. On follow up after 3 months she is on only 2 medicines and now we have reduced dose to only one medicine which is a discreet success case in Epilepsy diseases.”
Epilepsy is a disease that affects the central nervous system of the brain. People affected by this condition suffer from abnormal brain activity that ultimately leads to seizures, lack of consciousness, and unusual behavior. It is estimated that there are around 50 million people living with epilepsy (PWE) globally. Around one-sixth of this population resides in India. Around 10–12 million people with epilepsy reside in India, added by Neurosurgeon Dr. Samir Parekh from Apex Hospitals, Kandivali. Apex Group of Hospitals is a chain of Hospitals managed and run by expert Medical Professionals with experience of 25 years.
