Surgery is the only treatment option with the potential to cure epilepsy. This review is a description of the multidisciplinary and multimodal presurgical evaluation process and the outcome of the Danish epilepsy surgery programme. The outcome aligns with international results and serious complications to surgery are very rare. The annual number of operations per capita compares to neighbouring countries and is equally distributed across Denmark. In accordance with international recommendations, Danish drug-resistant patients should be referred to epilepsy surgery evaluation at an early stage of the disease.
