Objectives: To outline the evolution, indications, surgical techniques and complications of hemispheric procedures for intractable epilepsy. Materials and Methods: We review the patient selection, timing of surgery, surgical procedures and complications. Conclusions: There are clear indications for hemispheric procedures for intractable epilepsy, but the timing remains a concern in certain cases. The complications have reduced with the modified anatomical, functional and disconnective surgery with the improving surgical techniques.
