Abstract: This review traces the evolution of epilepsy surgery in India from the beginning to the present state. During the last one and half decades, surgical treatment of epilepsies has made resurgence in this country and at present a few centers have very active and sustained epilepsy surgery programs. Within a 14-year period, the R. Madhavan Nayar Center for Comprehensive Epilepsy Care, Trivandrum, has undertaken over 1000 epilepsy surgeries. However, in the whole country, annually, not more than 200 epilepsy surgeries are currently being performed. This number is a miniscule when compared to the number of potential surgical candidates among the vast population of India. The enormous surgical treatment gap can only be minimized by developing many more epilepsy surgery centers in different parts of our country.
