Craniotomy

THE SURGICAL REMOVAL OF PART OF THE SKULL.

Craniotomy for Tumor

A craniotomy is a type of brain surgery in which the neurosurgeon surgically removes part of the bone from the skull (called a “bone flap”) in order to expose part of the brain in order to operate on it. Once the procedure has been completed, the section of the skull that was removed is replaced.

 

Our neurosurgeons perform craniotomies in order to treat a variety of brain conditions and injuries. Some of those most common include:

  • Brain Tumors
  • Aneurysms
  • Hemorrhages or Hematomas
  • Infections and Abscesses
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Epilepsy
  • Severe Nerve or Facial Pain

 

There are several different types of craniotomy procedures. Some use the guidance of computers and imaging (magnetic resonance imaging [MRI] or computerized tomography [CT] scans) to reach the precise location within the brain that is to be treated.
