Lilavati Craniotomy Surgery

  1. 1. Experienced Surgeons performing Craniotomy Surgery in India at Lilavati Medical Centre. Craniotomy Surgery is a procedure to remove a lesion in the brain through an opening in the skull (cranium). A Craniotomy is a type of Surgery done to open part of the skull, or cranium. This procedure is needed when a person has a condition or injury that affects the brain, its tissues, or its blood vessels. Craniotomy Surgery in India is performed under Experienced Surgeons at Lilavati. The surgeons and physicians at in India are well qualified and proficient in performing surgeries and treating patients. India is one of the leading nations, where all kinds of treatments and surgeries are performed. India believes in creativity, honesty, loyalty, providing best service, and comfort to their patients. Many people from overseas have faith in treatment in India as the quality of treatment provided in India is excellent. A Craniotomy is a surgical operation in which part of the skull, called as a bone flap, is removed in order to achieve access to the brain. Craniotomies are often a critical procedure performed on patients suffering from brain lesions or traumatic brain injury (TBI). Craniotomy is also utilized by physicians to surgically implant deep brain stimulators for the treatment of Parkinson's disease, epilepsy and cerebellar tremor. The hair on part of the scalp is shaved. The scalp is cleansed and prepared for Surgery using a solution to execute germs on the skin surface. An incision is made through the scalp and a hole is drilled through the skull. A piece of the bone may be temporarily removed and the Surgery is performed, after which the bone is reinstated and secured in place using sutures. Craniotomy is usually performed under general anesthesia but can be also done with the patient awake using a local anaesthetic; the procedure generally does not involve significant discomfort for the patient. The amount of skull that needs to be removed depends to a large extent on the type of Surgery being performed. Most small holes can heal with no difficulty. When larger parts of the skull must be removed, surgeons will usually try to retain the bone flap and replace it immediately after Surgery. It is held in place momentarily with metal plates and rather quickly reintegrates with the intact part of the skull, at which point the metal plates are removed. Large or complex craniotomies are often called skull base Surgery. These craniotomies involve the removal of a portion of the skull that supports the bottom of the brain where delicate cranial nerves, arteries, and veins exit the skull. Reconstruction of the skull base is often necessary and may require the
  2. 2. additional expertise of head-and-neck, otologic, or plastic surgeons. Surgeons often use sophisticated computers to plan these craniotomies and locate the lesion. Skull base craniotomies can be used to:  Remove or treat large brain tumors, aneurysms, or AVMs  Treat the brain following a skull fracture or injury  Remove tumors that invade the bony skull Craniotomy Surgery will be preceded by an MRI scan which provides a picture of the brain that the surgeon uses to plan the precise location for bone removal and the appropriate angle of access to the relevant brain areas. There are many kinds of craniotomies. Ask your neurosurgeon to describe where the skin incision will be made and the amount of bone removal. There are two methods commonly utilized by surgeons to open the skull. Either an incision is made at the nape of the neck around the bone at the back or a curving incision is made in front of the ear that arches above the eye. The incision penetrates as far as the thin membrane covering the skull bone. During skin incision the surgeon must seal off many small blood vessels because the scalp has a rich blood supply. The scalp tissue is then folded back to expose the bone. Using a high-speed drill, the surgeon drills a pattern of holes through the cranium and uses a fine wire saw to connect the holes until a segment of bone can be removed. India is one of the best options for patients living in overseas; India provides one of the finest surgeons and physicians or Craniotomy Surgery.
