Abstract

Temporal lobectomy is the most common neurosurgical procedure performed for medically refractory epilepsy. Temporal lobe epilepsy has historically been one of the most difficult forms of epilepsy to treat, and it carries a significant psychosocial and medical burden. The inadequacy of medical therapy led to the development of effective neurosurgical procedures, and this article cites several seminal authors who pioneered the development of the field.
