Brain Tumors Surgeons, Doctors & Experts
A brain tumour, as a type of cancer, accounts for only 2% of all cancers, but it is a very dangerous pathology. Primary brain tumours arise from nerve cells of the central nervous system and are much more common than spinal cord formations.
Among malignant tumours in adults, glioblastoma is the most common. It does not have clear boundaries and grows as separate branches into healthy cavities of the brain, which makes it difficult to remove the formation. In this case, doctors try to remove the affected brain tissue as much as possible. The remnants of the formation are subjected to radiation or chemotherapy.
After removal of benign brain tumours, neurological disorders, as a rule, do not occur. However, 5-7% of neoplasms are located in remote areas of the brain, where it is very difficult to carry out surgical treatment. With such operations, the risks of neurological complications significantly increase the loss of motor ability, impaired speech and vision. Often there are secondary or metastatic brain tumours (metastases), which are formed from tumours located in other organs. Every year there is a tendency to the growth of this pathology.
The main method for treating a brain tumour is still surgical removal. The more affected cells are removed during surgery, the higher the chances of recovery. The decisive factor in this process is the experience of a neurosurgeon doctor.

Our specialists undertake operations for operations that other surgeons refuse. The knowledge that the patient’s prognosis will improve significantly with the removal of the entire tumour motivates the doctor to perform complex operations. Department surgeons use minimally invasive surgical procedures. Microsurgery is not the only tumour removal method, but it is undoubtedly one of the most sparing. The latest neurosurgical technique enables surgeons to work with multiple magnifications. The thickness of some surgical instruments is not more than two millimetres. Thus, the operation is carried out under a microscope, and not under direct visual control.
