Neurosurgical Oncology Clinical Care

Clinical care for patients with brain and spine tumors is an essential component of the Department of Neurological Surgery. Surgical offerings include open complex microsurgical approaches for intrinsic and extra-axial tumors, complex surgical resection and reconstruction of spinal primary and metastatic lesions, intraoperative MRI (IMRIS) assisted resection of low-grade brain tumors, advanced, minimally invasive and cutting edge endoscopic skull base approaches in collaboration with the ENT service (neuro-otology and rhinology), and awake craniotomy with cortical mapping. State-of-the-art equipment is available to advance the safety of these complex microsurgical procedures, including frameless stereotactic navigation, intraoperative imaging, fluorescence guidance, O-arm and neuro-physiology/neuro-monitoring services.
