About the offer

The patient is recommended for surgery if symptoms indicate a growing cyst and increased pressure inside the skull. Endoscopic cyst drainage surgery is a minimally invasive technique to remove the content of the brain cyst. Compared to open surgery, the main advantage of such intervention is minimizing postoperative complications, which guarantees the patient's rapid recovery. In addition, this procedure is effective for treating most cases of arachnoid cysts. As a rule, finishing the surgery takes 60 minutes to an hour and a half. A neurosurgeon makes a small hole in the head through which an endoscope (a tube-like surgical device) is inserted. An endoscope with microsurgical tools and a camera provides penetration to deep areas of the brain and precise execution of all necessary manipulations. At the same time, everything that happens inside the brain is displayed on the monitor, and the doctor sees all the vessels and nerves, so the risk of injury to healthy tissues is minimal. After reaching the cyst, holes are created in its wall, allowing the fluid to drain. However, sometimes relapses may occur after surgery. Therefore, the patient is recommended to undergo regular monitoring and examination by a neurologist.
