Surgery is the most distinctive treatment for brain tumours. To eliminate a brain tumour, a neurosurgeon makes an opening in the skull. This operation is called a craniotomy. When it is possible, the surgeon attempts to remove the entire tumour. If the tumour cannot be completely detached without damaging critical brain tissue, your surgeon may remove as much of the tumour as possible. Fractional removal helps to ease symptoms by reducing pressure on the brain and reduces the amount of tumour to be treated by chemotherapy. Some tumours cannot be removed as in such case; the doctor may do only a biopsy. A small piece of the tumour is removed so that a pathologist can examine it under a microscope to decide the type of cells it contains. This helps the doctor to decide which treatment to use.
Sometimes, a biopsy is done with a needle. Top surgeons in Delhi use a special head frame (like a halo) and CT scans or MRI to isolate the precise location of the tumour. The surgeon makes a small hole in the head and then guides the needle to the tumour. Using this technique to do treatment is called stereotaxis. Additional highly developed techniques during surgery include brain mapping to find focused pathways near tumours, endoscopy to perform biopsies and open spinal fluid pathways through a small scope and superior frameless stereotaxic computer-assisted tumour resections. MRI is also available to help in maximizing tumour removal.
