Brain Tumor Craniotomy
A craniotomy is the surgical removal of a portion of the skull known as the bone flap. The removal of the bone flap exposes the brain, enabling surgeons to treat or remove tumors. The bone flap is returned to its position following treatment of the tumor. Hospital stay depends on the type of tumor, and the extent of surgery needed to remove it. There is often a day spent in the ICU. Recovery also depends on the type of tumor and the extent of surgery needed. Surgeons at L+M use proven techniques to keep the patient safe during the surgery.
