In the second episode of TSC Now host Dan Klein talks to Dr. Daniel Curry, Director of  Functional Neurosurgery and Epilepsy Surgery at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston. They discuss how he became a neurosurgeon, the development of laser ablation as a treatment for epilepsy, what parents need to know about the procedure compared to traditional brain surgery and what they should consider before making the decision to get surgery. We end by discussing what Dr. Curry expects to be the next great breakthroughs in the treatment of epilepsy both in TSC and the general public.
