Neurological Conditions and Their Treatment Options - Brain Tumors


 

  • Microsurgical resection of benign brain tumors
  • Benign, [ non cancerous,] tumors of the brain can be removed with improved safety and reduced effects on surrounding structures by use of modern technology. Computers in the operating room direct the surgeon precisely to the tumor. The operating binocular microscope is used with the surgeon's skills to remove the tumor safely and more completely.
  • Microsurgical resection of malignant brain tumors
  • Removal of malignant, [ cancerous,] tumors is very similar to the above technique for benign tumors. Newer technology often permits more effective surgical treatments for conditions that used to be only radiated with less effective results.
  • Resection of complex skull base tumors

 

  • This is an area of neurologic surgery with special challenges. CNI member surgeons have special fellowship training and experience as well as scholarly publications in this area.
  • Endoscopic transphenoidal resection of pituitary tumors
  • Pituitary tumors are often benign but cause problems by excessive hormone production and or pressure on critical brain structures. The surgical approach to the pituitary through the nose and skull base is classic but newer technology with fiberoptic vision and remote instruments now allow surgery to be performed through very small openings with greater precision and safety. CNI surgeons are specialists in these procedures.
