Just like any other tumour, brain tumour is the abnormal growth of cells in the brain. Brain Tumour can be benign or cancerous. The biggest problem with brain tumour is that it is difficult to do a biopsy of the brain tumour to find out its nature. In most of the cases of brain tumour, MRI of the brain is the best investigation to find out the nature of the tumour. Once it is suspected that the tumour is malignant then it has to be removed through surgery. Brain is a very compact organ controlling all functions of the body and slight mistake by the surgeon can have disastrous results. It is because of this complexity that most of the people try to find the best neurosurgeon in India for getting the brain tumour surgery done.
Neurosurgery in India has always been very advanced and very complex brain tumour surgeries have been done by Indian Neurosurgeons for more than 30 years now. Today with the advent of very high precision microscopes, the brain tumour surgeries are not such a huge challenge. Intraoperative MRI differentiates between the live healthy tissue and cancerous tumour. The surgeons can then remove the brain tumour with great accuracy without touching the healthy tissue. Brain Tumour Surgeries done with such precision means that there are no deficits in the patient after the surgery.
Brain tumors are classified as grade I, grade II, grade III or grade IV. The most common type of primary brain tumors among adults are astrocytoma, meningioma and oligodendroglioma. The most common type of primary brain tumors in children are medulloblastoma, grade I or II astrocytoma, ependymoma, and brain stem glioma.
Surgery is usually the first treatment for most brain tumors. With advances in imaging, early diagnosis, sophisticated planning, preoperative anaesthetic management, special microscopes and surgical instruments it is possible to remove significant amounts of brain tumour through brain tumour surgery with relative safety. The advent of PET CT, IGRT and Gamma knife surgery (stereotactic radio surgery) is revolutionizing the treatment of various problems in the brain, including benign brain tumours in treacherous locations, like the brain stem or near the optic nerve. The best results in Brain Tumour Surgery are achieved by the usage of High Precision Surgical Microscopes and highly skilled surgeons.
