  • Patients head will be shaved and the skin over the surgical site will be cleansed with an antiseptic solution.
  • An incision may be made from behind the hairline in front of the ear and the nape of the neck, or in another location depending on the location of the problem.
  • The scalp will be pulled up and clipped to control bleeding while providing access to the brain.
  • A medical drill may be used to make burr holes in the skull. A special saw may be used to carefully cut the bone. The bone flap will be removed and saved.
  • The dura mater (the thick outer covering of the brain directly underneath the bone) will be separated from the bone and carefully cut open to expose the brain.
  • Once the surgery is completed, the surgeon will suture (sew) the layers of tissue together. The bone flap will be reattached using plates, sutures, or wires.
  • The skin incision (scalp) will be closed with sutures or surgical staples. A sterile bandage or dressing will be applied over the incision.

Patient will require a hospital stay for 5 to 7 days.
