Has anyone had right temporal lobe surgery done with a laser? What was your experience and was it successful? Any insight would be greatly appreciated as I am considering having it done in September. My doctor offered me the laser surgery or the lobectomy. He strongly suggested the laser due to the decreased down time. The traditional surgery has a higher rate of success due to a longer tracking period but of the patients he has used the laser on only 3 needed to have the traditional surgery done after the laser.
