Neurosurgery for Residents in Tyler, Longview, Palestine
A craniectomy is a procedure that involves permanently removing a portion of the skull which is later replaced during a second surgery after the initial swelling has subsided.
A surgical craniotomy is a procedure that is beneficial in:
- Treating and diagnosing brain tumors
- Removing dangerous blood clots
- Removing an abnormal mass of blood vessels
- Draining brain abscess
- Repairing skull fractures
- Treating epilepsy
- Removing pressure within the brain
In order to reach the precise part of the brain that is to be treated, these procedures often enlist the help of computers such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computerized tomography (CT) scans.
