Brain tumors are brain disorders, more and more commonly diagnosed in recent years, both in adults and children. The risks of a brain operation are not to be neglected and that is why, today, the modern treatment of brain tumors uses, for the benefit of the patient, minimally invasive approaches and advanced microsurgical techniques.
Brain formations have a slow, insidious and usually silent evolution, without a specific symptomatology. However, in some cases, when the tumor is located in some areas of the brain, it can cause the following signs and symptoms: headache, moments of confusion, loss of memory or concentration, blurred or double vision, seizures, numbness of a limb or inability to mobilize a body part.
Other symptoms that should not be overlooked and for which a specialist consultation is recommended are nausea, vomiting, hearing, smell or taste disorders, dizziness, loss of balance, shaking hands or uncontrolled movements.
The specialist usually assesses these symptoms by a rigorous physical and medical examination. The definite diagnosis can be established, however, only by corroborating the neurological examination with the data obtained from performing advanced imaging investigations – CT or MRI.
Precise imaging examination and the correct description of the location and size of vertebral tumors is essential for establishing its relationship with other nerve structures and especially for establishing the indication for surgical treatment.
Given the complexity of these conditions and the finesse with which they must be managed, advanced treatment techniques have been developed. Modern neurosurgery, like other surgical specialties, uses minimally invasive surgical techniques and high-performance surgical equipment to safely treat both primary cranial tumors and cranial metastases.
With the help of the most modern neurosurgical surgical technology, called neuronavigation, the neurosurgeon can accurately delimit the anatomical structures of the skull from the tumor lesion and can clearly identify the edges of resection even during surgery. Neuronavigation systems have been designed for the benefit of patients, for a speedy recovery and a much lower risk of postoperative complications.
In the Department of Neurosurgery at SANADOR modern neurosurgery is performed safely, with advanced neuronavigation systems for intraoperative imaging guidance. SANADOR has state-of-the-art operating technology such as the Zeiss Kinevo 900 operating microscope, unique in our country. to SANADOR Clinical HospitalThe Department of Neurosurgery provides patients with a modern operating room, connected to the Department of Therapy and Intensive Anesthesia, ready to take on cases with a high degree of complexity.
On Wednesday, June 8, we celebrate World Brain Tumor Awareness Day. We celebrate the fact that the advancement of medical technology allows medical teams to offer complete treatment solutions and high chances of success even in very difficult cases. We celebrate the fact that cancer patients have access to complete health services, in high-performance and modern centers. It is essential to remain optimistic and send the message to everyone that skull tumors can be successfully treated and cured!
