Corpus Callosotomy

Corpus callosotomy is a surgical procedure that involves removal of corpus callosum to avoid spread of seizures from one hemisphere to another. Corpus callosum is a band of nerve fibers that connects the two halves or hemispheres of the brain. It is done in people with the most extreme and uncontrollable forms of epilepsy.

Procedure

  • The patient will be sedated for the procedure.
  • The surgeon will make an incision in the patient’s scalp.
  • A piece of bone or skull will be removed, exposing the brain.
  • A section of the dura of your brain will be pulled back, creating a “window”.
  • The surgeon will then insert special instruments to interrupt the course of corpus callosum.
  • The parts are then reattached.
