Dr. Vikas Bhardwaj specializes in performing epilepsy surgeries to help patients with seizures that cannot be controlled with medication. Epilepsy surgery aims to remove the part of the brain that causes seizures or disconnect it from the rest of the brain to prevent seizures from spreading.
Dr. Vikas Bhardwaj uses the latest techniques and technology to perform epilepsy surgeries, including stereo electroencephalography (SEEG), which uses electrodes placed in the brain to identify the source of seizures with high precision, and laser interstitial thermal therapy (LITT), which uses laser heat to destroy the targeted brain tissue without making an incision.
Before the surgery, Dr. Vikas Bhardwaj conducts a thorough evaluation of the patient's condition, including detailed medical history, physical and neurological exams, and imaging studies such as MRI and EEG. Based on the findings, he develops a personalized treatment plan that may include medication adjustments, dietary changes, or other non-surgical options before considering surgery.
During the surgery, Dr. Vikas Bhardwaj works closely with a team of neurologists, neurophysiologists, and anesthesiologists to ensure the highest level of safety and precision. After the surgery, he provides comprehensive post-operative care, including medication management, follow-up appointments, and rehabilitation services, to help patients achieve the best possible outcome.
Dr. Vikas Bhardwaj's expertise in performing epilepsy surgeries has helped many patients achieve significant improvement in their quality of life and reduce or eliminate their seizures.
