About the offer

Craniotomy surgery, so-called open brain surgery, is a specialized treatment for brain tumors that a neurosurgeon does. It involves temporarily removing part of the skull so the surgeon can get to the brain to remove a tumor or take a biopsy sample. It usually requires about two weeks to recover. Before surgery, patients undergo a series of exams, such as clinical history and medical records, a physical exam, and a meeting with a neurosurgeon and an anesthesiologist. Then, blood tests, urinalysis, and imaging studies like an MRI scan are performed to ensure the patient is healthy enough for surgery and to find out where the tumor is and what it looks like. The craniotomy procedure is done under general anesthesia. The neurosurgeon uses high-tech navigation tools to find the tumor with great accuracy. After surgery, patients get care and treatment for their symptoms. Brain surgery helps to remove the tumor, relieve symptoms caused by the tumor's pressure on nearby brain tissue, and improve the overall prognosis. The benefits of a craniotomy will depend on the person, the size, and the tumor location. In addition, this procedure allows doctors to make a correct diagnosis and plan further treatment. Surgery costs include medicines, supplies, anesthesia, hospital stay, nursing care, medical records, and recommendations.
