If anti-seizure medications aren't successful, other treatments might be an option:

icon Surgery: The aim of surgery is to end seizures from happening. Surgeons locate and get rid of the area of your brain where seizures begin. Surgery works best for patients who have seizures that continuously instigate in the same place in their brains.

icon Vagus Nerve Stimulation: A device rooted underneath the skin of your chest rouses the vagus nerve in your neck, sending signals to your brain that prevent seizures. With Vagus Nerve Stimulation, you will still need to take medication, but you might be able to lower the dose.

icon Responsive Neurostimulation: During responsive neurostimulation, a device is fixed on the surface of your brain or within brain tissue can identify seizure activity and provide an electrical stimulation to the detected area to end the seizure.

icon Deep Brain Stimulation: Doctors insert electrodes within definite areas of your brain to create electrical impulses that control abnormal brain activity. The electrodes attached to a pacemaker-like device placed under the skin of your chest, which regulates the amount of stimulation produced.

icon Dietary Therapy: Following a ketogenic diet that's high in fat and low in carbohydrates, can enhance seizure control. Variations on a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet, such as the low glycemic index and modified Atkins diets, though less effective, aren't as restrictive as the ketogenic diet and might offer benefit.
