Craniotomy Overview

A craniotomy is a type of brain surgery. It is the most commonly performed surgery for brain tumour removal. It may also be done to remove a blood clot (hematoma), to control haemorrhage from a weak, leaking blood vessel (cerebral aneurysm), to repair arteriovenous malformations (abnormal connections of blood vessels), to drain a brain abscess, to relieve pressure inside the skull, to perform a biopsy, or to inspect the brain.

Deciding About the Treatment

After observing your recent stereotactic imaging, the doctors will prepare your head for surgery by using place markers with a stereotactic navigation system. This ensures the accuracy and preciseness of movements. To be completely accurate, there may be a need to remove some of your hair from your skull. It is at that time once the doctors have the exact markings of your skull, then only they will remove a small piece. The piece of your skull will be safely stored until it will be reattached with permanent metallic plates and screws.

After removing the appropriate portion of your skull, microscope and microsurgical techniques will be used to safely and effectively remove the offending material (hematoma, tumour, etc). Once the skull bone is replaced (it may be either immediately after the removal of the material or a few days later, depending on swelling of the brain) and all the layers are sewn (pia, arachnoid, dura) we the skin will be closed with staples.

Duration of Stay

Recovery Process

It should be noted that the healing and recovery time can be very variable, being altered by things such as tobacco use. It should be noted that tobacco use can be detrimental to recovery and healing.

Pain varies from person to person regarding their incision. Usually, there is a mild pain at the incision area, though it is more common to experience pain at the base of the neck and your shoulder blades due to the disc space distraction. If there is excessive swelling, drainage, or pus from the incision site please get medical attention immediately. If there is fevers, chills, or nausea please receive medical attention immediately. If you are having trouble breathing, please seek medical attention immediately. Avoid lifting heavy weights in the first few weeks of the surgery. You can lift weight not exceeding 20 pounds until three months after surgery. Other guidelines will be shared by the doctor after the surgery.
