To remove tumours, metastases or cysts, we generally carry out the necessary procedures following a craniotomy. Thanks to the use of the finest instruments and surgical microscopes, this procedure allows us to preserve significantly more tissue than with conventional surgical techniques.
Where the brain is involved, it is essential not to injure vessels unnecessarily. Neuromonitoring allows the function of the individual areas of the brain to be monitored even under general anaesthetics.
In some cases – for example if the speech centre is involved – we also carry out operations with the patient awake, so that the patient remains responsive.
