Even though some medications for epilepsy are able to drastically reduce the number of seizures a patient suffers sometimes just one can be damaging enough to a person's quality of life.

Treating epilepsy is a difficult issue in most if not all cases. However, it is even more difficult for medical refractory epilepsy, according to Kia Shahlaie, MD, PhD, from the UC Davis Health System.

In some cases, if the seizure comes from just one part of the brain, a cure for the condition is possible.
