Neurooncology

The team at NeuroSpine and Brain utilise the latest neurosurgical techniques including

  • Computer assisted neuronavigation using the BrainLab System
  • Functional mapping of motor, sensory and language cerebral cortex using the Ojemann cortical stimulator
  • Awake Craniotomy techniques to further identify eloquent functional cerebral cortex

These techniques are used where appropriate in addition to standard neurosurgical techniques to help identify brain tumour margins, areas of important functional brain and their relationship to the tumour margins. This helps the surgeon maximise the tumour resection while minimising the risk of damage adjacent functional brain
