Commission on Surgical Therapies

The overall goal of the Commission is to examine the area of epilepsy surgery evaluation, implementation, risks, and outcomes to recommend how the League can help move forward, with a global perspective. This overall goal will be achieved through a group of 5 taskforces:

  1. Task force for epilepsy surgery in the resource poor countries
  2. Task force for epilepsy surgery education
  3. Task force for pediatric epilepsy surgery
  4. Task force for evidence-based practice of epilepsy surgery
  5. Task force for epilepsy surgery outcomes

Each task force is focused on a specific challenge facing epilepsy surgery today, and is charged with the responsibility to provide proposed solutions or frameworks for solutions to address these challenges.
