A real breakthrough occurred within the Ukrainian neurosurgery. In particular, we are talking about the treatment of epilepsy. As PROMAN Ukraine reports, this was declared by the famous Kiev neurosurgeon Igor Kurilets.
“Earlier epilepsy was equated with mental illness and was in the competence of psychiatrists. Nowadays, the approach to the disease has changed significantly: epilepsy is considered as a neurophysiological brain tumor.” Modern medicine has all the means and possibilities to determine this “sick” area of the brain, even if visually it looks like normal and healthy. After surgery, i.e. removing the epileptogenic area of the brain, a person gets every chance to be cured of epilepsy forever”, Mr. Kurilets said.
According to the doctor, similar operations are already conducted by Ukrainian neurosurgeons, and the percentage of patients who have been cured of the disease is growing rapidly.
