CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A unique procedure gives a Charlotte teen with epilepsy a fighting chance to have a life without seizures.
Pediatric epileptologist Jennifer Zurosky determined Dylan Miller was a good candidate for the surgery that would change his life.
"If you've got seizures coming from one particular part of the brain versus all over, if you can take that part out and if it's a safe area to remove, then you can cure the epilepsy," said Zurosky.
