Am I a candidate for brain tumor surgery?
The neurosurgeon will determine if you’re a candidate based on the type and location of the brain tumor. We recommend you refer to one of our professional doctors for an evaluation to determine if you are a candidate for surgery.
How do I prepare for brain tumor surgery?
You will have some medical tests done days before your surgery. Neurosurgeons recommend you to stop eating at least 12 hours before surgery and will discuss with you if you need to take medications to reduce swelling and pressure on the brain.
What will recovery be like?
Recovery tends to take longer when compared to other surgeries, as it can cause weakness, speech problems, loss of balance, and emotional changes. Various types of rehabilitation will be recommended, along with psychotherapy.
