Epilepsy is relatively common - it is a group of disorders that involve recurrent seizures. Epilepsy can start at any age, but it mostly begins during childhood. Treatment involves using epilepsy drugs to control seizures. In rare cases, surgery may be used to either remove a specific area of the brain that is affected, or install an electrical device to assist in controlling seizures.
