What is Craniotomy (brain surgery)?

Craniotomy refers to any operation on the cranium or incision into the cranium to expose the brain. There are a number of different procedures BMI Healthcare can perform utilising craniotomy including; removal of a brain tumour, removing a blood clot on the brain, repairing leaking blood vessels that may enable the control of haemorrhaging.

There are other even more advanced procedures that craniotomy (brain surgery) can be used for such as deep brain stimulation for such diseases as Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy and cerebral tremors. Craniotomy is the name of the opening for most intracranial neurosurgical procedures. A craniotomy can also be a small opening advanced by the new minimally invasive approaches.
