Procedure For Brain Tumor Treatment

It is performed under general anaesthesia & the procedure can take 4-8 hours

  • A small area of the head may be shaved and the patient may be given an local anaesthetic to part of the scalp
  • An incision (cut) is made in the scalp and a small part of the skull ('bone flap') will be removed.
  • Awake Craniotomy: In this, the patient will be woken at this point to allow the doctor to map where the functions of the brain are located in the brain. Patient may have a feeling of pulling out something but should not feel pain as the brain itself cannot feel pain.

  • Bone flap will be replaced and the wound closed using stitches or metal clip.
