Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery Q&A

What is minimally invasive brain surgery?

Minimally invasive brain surgery uses innovative technology to access your brain without making a large incision or hole in your skull. The team uses a variety of minimally invasive brain surgery techniques, including:

Microcraniotomy

Your surgeon makes a tiny incision in your skull and uses thin surgical tubes and magnetic imaging during microcraniotomy. They insert special, thin surgical instruments and use imaging, such as MRIs, to complete the procedure. 

Neuroendoscopy

During neuroendoscopy, your surgeon inserts an endoscope through your nose and into your brain. It transmits images from inside the brain to a monitor in the operating room. Your surgeon uses special endoscopic instruments to complete the procedure. 

Radiosurgery

Radiosurgery is sometimes a microcraniotomy procedure. However, instead of using surgical tools, your surgeon inserts a laser fiber into your brain, guiding it to the location of your problem. The fiber releases heat to target damaged tissue.
