What are the types of brain surgery?

5 types of brain surgery;

1. Biopsy

This procedure involves the removal of a small amount of brain tissue or a tumour in order to be examined under a microscope. This is done by making a small incision and hole in the skull. A craniotomy involves making an incision in the scalp and creating a hole called a bone flap in the skull. However, the incision is made near the area of the brain which needs to be treated.

2. Craniotomy

A procedure which is executed by making an incision in the scalp and creating a hole known as a bone flap in the skull. The hole and incision are made near the affected area of the brain which is needed to be treated.

After the completion of the procedure, the bone flap is usually secured in place with plates, sutures, or wires. However, the hole is usually left open in the case of tumours, infection, or brain swelling, then the procedure is known as a craniectomy.

3. Minimally invasive endonasal endoscopic surgery

This type of brain surgery too involves the removal of tumours or lesions through your nose and sinuses. The procedure facilitates the access of your brain’s parts without making an incision. The procedure involves the use of an endoscope, which is a telescopic device equipped with lights and a camera which enables the surgeon to see where they’re working. Your doctor can use this for tumours on the pituitary gland, tumours on the base of the skull, and tumours growing at the bottom part of the brain.

4. Deep brain stimulation

Like biopsy, this procedure too involves making a small hole in the skull, but instead of removing a piece of tissue, here it involves the insertion of a small electrode into a deep portion of the brain. The objective of inserting electrode is to connect it to a battery at the chest, like a pacemaker, and electrical signals will be transmitted help symptoms of different disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease. Thus, by this procedure one can go for Parkinson disease treatment in Delhi, also the city offers some good hospital options.
