Aims

Patient satisfaction with therapeutic interventions is an important outcome of care. Although generic measures of patient satisfaction exist, there is no validated scale for measuring patient satisfaction with epilepsy surgery. We aimed to systematically obtain patient-identified factors related to satisfaction with epilepsy surgery as a means of informing clinicians about the ways that patients evaluate outcomes of their treatment and as a conceptual basis for the future development of epilepsy surgery patient satisfaction scales.
