Brain & Neuro Surgery

Types of Brain Surgery

There are several different types of brain surgery. The type used depends on the problem being treated.

Craniotomy

A craniotomy involves an incision into the scalp and creating a hole in the skull, known as a bone flap. The hole and incision are made near the area of the brain being treated.

During open brain surgery, your surgeon may opt to remove tumors, clip off an aneurysm, drain blood or fluid from an infection, or remove abnormal brain tissue.

When the procedure is complete, the bone flap is usually secured in place with plates, sutures, or wires. The hole may be left open in the case of tumors, infection, or brain swelling. When left open, the procedure is known as a craniectomy.

Biopsy

This procedure is used to remove a small amount of brain tissue or a tumor so it can be examined under a microscope. This involves a small incision and hole in the skull.

Minimally Invasive Endonasal Endoscopic Surgery

This type of surgery allows surgeons to remove tumors or lesions through the nose and sinuses. It allows them to access parts of the brain without making an incision. The procedure involves the use of an endoscope, which is a telescopic device equipped with lights and a camera so the surgeon can see where he or she is working. This is used for tumors on the pituitary gland, base of the skull, and those spreading across the brain.

Minimally Invasive Neuroendoscopy

Similar to minimally invasive endonasal endoscopic surgery, neuroendoscopy uses endoscopes to remove brain tumors. This kind of surgery may also involve small, dime-sized holes in the skull to access parts of the brain.
