Narcolepsy Surgery


Four years of nightly seizures have driven Rachel Vella to what many people consider their last resort, brain surgery. 2 years ago up pinpointing the problem was almost impossible but now with emerging imaging technology it is possible.”the development of a world-first brain imaging analysis technique, led by Florey Professor Graeme Jackson and PhD student Mangor Pederson, is boosting the power of MRI and finding previously “invisible” epilepsy”

On May 8th Rachel received surgery, doctors had taken out a sliver of tissue, it is the worlds first precise resection in a hospital.

The surgery was a success and Rachel can now be a normal teenager.
