The Asian Epilepsy Surgery Congress had some of the best scientific advances not only from the Asian sub-continent but also from the rest of the world. The topics included some of the basics of epilepsy surgery to the more recent advances in the field. In addition, there were “How I do it, video sessions” which demonstrated the surgical techniques from some of the masters in this field.
