Mr. Shukur Ayyed Khalaf from Iraq
In an Awake craniotomy surgery, the patient is sedated while the surgeon opens the skull to expose the brain. The patient is then brought out of sedation to full consciousness. The patient can interact with the doctor during the procedure. This interaction is the most reliable way to ensure that the doctor does not damage healthy tissue while removing as much of the tumor as possible.
