All insurance is accepted, and patients without insurance coverage may qualify for cost-free epilepsy brain surgery or Gama Knife radiosurgery if accepted to participate in the Radiosurgery or Open Surgery for Epilepsy clinical trial.

New medical advances have made epilepsy surgery more available as an option when epileptic seizures cannot be satisfactorily controlled by medications. In the past, individuals with epilepsy were treated for years using multiple anticonvulsants, often with poor results, before being considered for surgery.

Now, most epilepsy specialists consider surgery earlier to help patients improve their quality of life sooner. When epilepsy brain surgery is being considered, patients and their physicians can now include a new option, Gamma Knife radiosurgery, which uses focused radiation to treat a localized seizure focus. The ROSE trial encourages epilepsy patients to apply for inclusion in this clinical trial when anticonvulsant medications cannot satisfactorily control epileptic seizures.
