Neurologist 's  Response
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic. She is having refractory epilepsy (not responding to medicines). First of all we should know what is the type of epilepsy and choose appropriate medicines for that. If medicines wont work then we should see if we can offer surgery and cure the epilepsy. If she is right candidate surgery can cure epilepsy. However there is no cure for polio. We can only cure epilepsy. I hope you got the answer. Bye
