Abstract

There are multiple social, economic, and medical challenges in establishing successful epilepsy surgery programs in India and in other low- and middle-income countries (LAMIC). These can be overcome by reproducing pragmatic and proven epilepsy surgery models throughout the country with a larger aim of developing a national epilepsy surgery program so as to provide affordable and quality surgical care to all the deserving patients. An organized national epilepsy surgery support activity can help interested centers in India and in neighboring countries in developing epilepsy surgery programs.
