Brain Surgery

Brain surgery has been revolutionised over recent years through the development of new technology, advanced imaging, new surgical approaches and enhanced techniques.

 

In addition to open brain surgery where a portion of the skull is removed to access the brain, more and more conditions can be treated through very small holes in the skull or even without incisions by accessing growths at the base of the skull through the nasal cavity – via endoscopic brain surgery.

 

By avoiding large surgical incisions, patients can benefit form quicker recovery, less scarring and a reduced risk of damage to healthy tissue. Our team utilise advanced techniques to treat a range of conditions from brain cancer to anatomical abnormalities, trauma injuries, trigeminal neuralgia and fluid build up and swelling (oedema).

 

The most common brain surgery performed includes brain tumour removal, chronic subdural haematoma, acoustic neuroma, pituitary tumours, stereotactic biopsy and trigeminal neuralgia surgery – microvascular decompression.
