Epilepsy neurosurgery is a highly specialized discipline that requires close collaboration with the epileptology team.
Epilepsy (FR) is a neurological disease that causes an abnormal discharge of nerve cells in the brain. It causes seizures with a frequency and duration that vary depending on the individual. There are many different causes. If there is no lesion causing the seizures (tumors, abscesses, cysts, etc.), patients are treated by neurologists to stop the seizures with antiepileptic medications.
The division treats all types of brain tumors surgically.Tumors are masses that develop from the disorganized proliferation of a cell in the human body.
There are different types of brain tumors, such as gliomas (astrocytomas, oligodendrogliomas, glioblastomas, etc.), nerve sheath tumors (schwannomas), tumors of the meninges (meningiomas) and lymphomas. In some cases, there may be tumors from another part of the body that have migrated to the brain (metastases).
Surgical interventions on the brain are grouped by specialty. Neurosurgery experts contribute significantly to the understanding of neurovascular diseases and the development of innovative therapies.

Epileptology is the study of epilepsy.
Epilepsy (also known as seizures, epileptic crises or grand mal seizures) is a neurological disease characterized by epileptic seizures, sudden symptoms characterized by paroxystic cerebral hyperactivity that could manifest itself in the form of the onset of complex hallucinations (visual and/or auditory and/or somesthetic), with or without convulsions.
