About the offer

Neurofibromatosis treatment includes various operations to remove painful, malignant, or disfiguring tumors. Surgery can also prevent damage to the brain or spinal cord. The surgery aims to remove the mass as much as possible without causing further nerve damage. The neurosurgeon determines the type of surgery depending on the tumor's size and location and how many nerves are affected. For example, neurofibroma surgery in the spine requires hospitalization for some days. With neurofibromatosis of the second type, the tumor is often located in the auditory nerve area. Its removal is carried out using various kinds of surgical access. With severe hearing impairment, modern cochlear implants can be offered to patients. As a rule, surgical intervention is performed under general anesthesia. Then the neurosurgeon makes a small incision at the site of the neurofibroma. It allows the doctor to see the tumor and access it. With a large size of the formation or the risk of degeneration into cancer, the neoplasm and fragments of healthy tissue structures surrounding it are completely excised. Next, the neurofibroma separates from the nerve sheath with special tools. When the procedure is completed, the incision is sewn with self-absorbable sutures.
