Advanced Brain Tumor Treatments
Stereotactic radiosurgery – uses targeted radiation to eradicate brain tumors or prevent them from coming back after surgery.
Intraoperative Cranial Navigation – it is essentially a GPS for your brain. We are able to see in real time where we are, in order to find the safest approach to the tumor.
Endoscopic Endonasal Surgery – using a small camera, we can approach certain tumors (pituitary tumors) up through the nose without any incision for a faster recovery and less pain.
Minimally invasive brain surgery – we can use tiny incisions and tools to handle very delicate procedures, with less pain and faster recovery.
Intraoperative stimulation mapping – we’re able to stimulate parts of your brain during surgery to identify and protect your specific brain functions.
Brain Tumors Treated
A benign tumor is not cancerous and usually is slow growing. But it can still cause headaches, seizures, and other symptoms just like a malignant tumor.
A malignant tumor is cancerous and can grow if not treated quickly. Usually malignant tumors are either primary brain tumors, meaning tumors that arise from the brain itself, or are cancers from other parts of the body that have spread to the brain.
