Brain Tumor Surgery

If you have been detected with a brain tumor, you probably have several questions about the diagnosis, therapy, surgery and the recovery process.

Dr. Gurneet Singh Sawhney is nationally recognized as one of the best Neurosurgeon in India surgeon for advanced, leading-edge brain tumor surgery in Mumbai for benign and malignant tumors initiating in the brain, as well as metastatic cancer that initiates outside of the brain.

A collaborative team of specialists work with Dr. Gurneet to develop personalized brain tumour treatment plans based on their complete, multidisciplinary assessment of all of the diagnostic information available.  Dr. Gurneet takes patient-centered approach to care since he believes no two patients respond in the same way to treatment. This includes individual molecular profiling, advanced neuroimaging and neurocognitive testing to choose the finest therapeutic options.

An exceptional strength of our brain program is the ability to convert research findings from the laboratory into medical practice, giving brain tumor patients direct and fast access to the latest brain tumor surgery alternatives in Mumbai.

Further, complex brain tumor surgery in Mumbai have better outcomes if they are done at high-volume institutions as they are better equipped for such surgeries in terms of infrastructure, technology, sophisticated operation theatres, and most importantly more skilled surgeons.

Different types of brain tumor surgeries

Dr.Gurneet Singh Sawhney, a highly experienced neurosurgeon in Mumbai, is an expert in brain tumor surgery in Mumbai. He has often operated on tumors that are deemed inoperable by others. Also, Dr. Sawhney is adept in stereotactic procedures and neuroendoscopic procedures.

  1. Craniotomy
    A craniotomy is the most common procedure for removal of brain tumor. During this surgery, a portion of the scalp is removed to expose the area of the brain above the tumor.
    In a conventional craniotomy, the surgeon operates according to their experience, knowledge and interpretation of the pre-operative scans.
    Whereas in stereotactic surgery, also known as neuro-navigation computer-assisted technology, the surgeon may rely on it for performing the surgery with precision.

  2. Microneuro surgery
    Stereotactic brain surgery removes thetumor with the help of image guidance. In this procedure, advanced surgical navigation and brain mapping technology is used to create a three-dimensional image.
    The main objective of this technique is to offer precise information about the location and position of the tumor in the brain. Some stereotactic systems provide real-time imaging of the surgery as it is being performed.
    Stereotactic surgical techniques help to reach tumors that are located deep inside the brain like brain stem or thalamus. Further, it can also assist in limiting the extent of surgery.

  3. Endoscopic pituitary surgery
    To remove tumors from the skull base and pituitary glands, the endoscopic surgery is performed through the nose. Dr. Sawhney uses long instruments to operates through the nostrils using a tiny endoscope camera, and light to remove the tumor.
    The endoscope allows views of deep areas from different angles thereby, reducing surgical trauma during approach and retraction of structures.
    It is a minimally-invasive technique where the surgeon makes small incisions at the back of the nasal cavity, and it causes minimum destruction to the nasal tissues.

  4. Endoscopic surgery
    Endoscopes help the surgeon perform surgeries through small openings. They are long, flexible, narrow lighted tubes that are inserted in the surgical sites. They offer light and visual access to the surgeon.

  5. Endoscopic ventricular surgery
    This surgery treats several conditions such as a wide variety of tumors, colloid cysts and hydrocephalus. The doctor accesses the fluid-filled cavities in the centre of the brain with thehelp of minimally invasive sheath to perform the procedure.

  6. Endoscopic port surgery
    Endoscopic port surgery allows Dr. Sawhney access to deep-seated brain tumors through a small opening in the skull. This technique results in fewer complications and shorter hospital stay.
