KMBC: Woman six months seizure-free after new robotic assisted brain surgery at Saint Luke's
Kaiti Valadez suffered more than 100 seizures after a sudden onset of epilepsy when she was 20 years old.
After trying several other treatments, Kaiti qualified for a new robotic assisted brain surgery at Saint Luke's Marion Bloch Neuroscience Institute. With the ROSA, specially trained neurosurgeons can created a detail 3D map of a patient's brain and place electrodes directly into the brain to detect which area is causing the seizures. Once detected, the surgeon can then remove part of the brain causing the seizures.
