Ambassadeur de la Health Valley, le CHUV lance une opération pionnière contre l’épilepsie

In a European premiere, the CHUV in Lausanne treated a patient suffering from epilepsy by burning the brain region responsible for seizures with a laser fiber. The operation, called thermoablation, went well and the patient was fine.
