Brain Tumours

Brain Tumours

Brain tumours are abnormal growths of cells within the brain or its surrounding structures. They can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous), and their location, size, and type determine the approach to treatment. Early and accurate diagnosis is critical for effective management.

Diagnosis of Brain Tumours

Diagnosing brain tumours requires a multidisciplinary approach. Dr. Karthikeyan YR employs state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, such as MRI, CT scans, and advanced imaging, to determine the nature, location, and size of the tumour. Precise diagnosis is the foundation of an effective treatment plan.

Surgical Treatment for Brain Tumours

When brain tumours are diagnosed, surgical intervention is often the primary treatment method. Dr. Karthikeyan specializes in various surgical techniques to address brain tumours, tailored to the specific needs of each patient and the tumour characteristics. These may include:

  • Tumour Resection: Surgical removal of as much of the tumour as safely possible to alleviate pressure on the brain and surrounding structures.

  • Stereotactic Surgery: Precise, image-guided techniques for targeting tumours with minimal damage to healthy brain tissue.

  • Minimally Invasive Approaches: Whenever possible, minimally invasive techniques are employed to reduce tissue disruption, minimize postoperative pain, and speed up recovery.

  • Intraoperative Monitoring: Advanced monitoring methods are used to assess neurological function during surgery, ensuring the utmost precision and patient safety.

Benefits of Surgical Treatment

Tumour Removal: Surgery aims to remove the tumour, reducing pressure on the brain and the risk of further damage.

Preservation of Brain Function: Dr. Karthikeyan YR focuses on preserving and potentially improving neurological function during surgery.

Treatment of Malignant Tumours: For malignant brain tumors, surgery is often part of a comprehensive treatment plan that may include radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
