Surgery Options for Brain and Spine Tumors

When it comes to treating brain and spine tumors, there are various surgical options available. Each option is chosen based on the specific characteristics and location of the tumor.

Traditional Brain Surgery

Traditional brain surgery is a common approach used to diagnose and treat brain tumors. It involves opening the skull to access and remove the tumor. This surgical technique allows for direct visualization and precise removal of the tumor, providing effective treatment for many patients.

Gamma Knife Radiosurgery

Gamma Knife radiosurgery is a non-invasive treatment option that delivers precise and targeted radiation to brain tumors. It uses multiple radiation beams to stabilize, shrink, or destroy the tumor while minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue. Gamma Knife radiosurgery is particularly effective for tumors located in sensitive areas of the brain.

Laser Interstitial Thermal Therapy

Laser interstitial thermal therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes heat generated by laser fibers to coagulate and destroy brain tumors. It is performed under MRI guidance, allowing for real-time monitoring and precise tumor ablation. This technique minimizes damage to surrounding healthy tissue and offers a shorter recovery time.

Stereotactic Spine Radiosurgery

Stereotactic spine radiosurgery is a non-invasive treatment option for metastatic tumors located on the spine. It delivers high doses of radiation to the target area while sparing the surrounding healthy tissue. This precise treatment approach can help stabilize the spine and provide pain relief for patients with spinal tumors.

Skull Base Surgery

Skull base surgery is a specialized approach that combines multiple surgical techniques to access and remove tumors or lesions located at the base of the skull. This complex procedure requires meticulous planning and advanced surgical skills. Skull base surgery allows for the removal of difficult-to-reach tumors and provides optimal results for patients.

Brachytherapy

Brachytherapy is a targeted radiation therapy option for certain types of tumors. It involves the placement of radioactive sources directly into or near the tumor, delivering a high dose of radiation to the tumor site while minimizing exposure to surrounding healthy tissues. This technique is particularly effective for treating localized tumors.

Tumor-Treating Fields

Tumor-treating fields (TTFields) is an innovative treatment approach that uses low-intensity alternating electric fields to disrupt the division of cancer cells. This therapy involves the use of a portable device that delivers the electric fields specifically to the tumor site. TTFields can be used in combination with other treatments to enhance their effectiveness.

Interventional Angiography

Interventional angiography is a specialized technique used to diagnose and treat tumors that receive their blood supply from abnormal or enlarged blood vessels. During this procedure, a catheter is threaded through the blood vessels to the tumor site, allowing for the delivery of chemotherapy, embolization agents, or radiation therapy directly to the tumor.

Traditional Spine Surgery

Traditional spine surgery may be necessary to remove or reduce the size of tumors located on the spine. This surgical approach involves accessing the spine through an incision and removing the tumor or relieving pressure on the spinal cord. Traditional spine surgery can help stabilize the spine and improve the patient’s quality of life.

Each surgical option for brain and spine tumors has its own advantages and considerations. The choice of surgery depends on factors such as the tumor type, location, size, and overall health of the patient. A comprehensive evaluation by a team of specialists is essential to determine the most suitable surgical approach.
