When do you Need Brain Surgery?

The term “brain surgery” may sound extremely intimidating, but it’s something that a multitude of people have successfully undergone to get rid of structural issues in the brain. There are different types of brain surgery depending on the condition being treated. Any of the following conditions in or around the brain may call for brain surgery:

  • Formation of blood clots.
  • Damage caused to protective brain tissues called the “dura.”
  • Repairing nerve damage or treating nerve irritation.
  • Treating abscesses.
  • Releasing pressure after a head injury.
  • Treating skull fractures, brain tumors, and strokes.
  • Draining out fluid built up in the brain.

Brain Trauma Emergencies

Not all brain-related conditions require surgery. There are, however, certain symptoms that you should know so that you can call for qualified help at the earliest:

  • Mild to severe headaches.
  • Nausea and frequent vomiting.
  • Drowsiness and chronic fatigue.
  • Seizures and convulsions.

Whenever you experience any of these symptoms, they could root from an underlying cause, which only experts like us can identify. At Queens Crossing Neurosurgery, Dr. Harrison Mu undertakes a thorough evaluation of your symptoms and recommends a brain surgery only if there are risks of serious health problems.

How we can Help You

At Queens Crossing Neurosurgery, Dr. Harrison Mu and his team of New York brain surgeons will carefully review your symptoms and test results. Your clinical situation will be thoughtfully and patiently explained to you. With this knowledge and understanding, Dr. Harrison Mu and you together will formulate the right treatment plan individualized for your needs.

If your condition requires brain surgery, we do whatever is needed at the earliest to prevent it from becoming graver. Among the types of brain surgery our premier neurosurgery practice can perform are:

  • Biopsy: This involves the removal of a small amount of brain tissue or an abnormal tumor to study its nature in the laboratory. The procedure often involves making a small incision in the skull and accessing the brain’s tissues.
  • Craniotomy: This procedure involves a small incision in the scalp and creating a window in the skull over the area of the brain being treated. This open surgery is used for removing tumors, abnormal brain tissues, draining fluid, and removing blood clots. There are circumstances when it is necessary for the skull window to be left off; this is called a “Craniectomy”.
  • Endonasal Endoscopic Surgery: This is a minimally-invasive surgery that allows removal of lesions and tumors in the brain through the nose. The procedure requires an endoscope and a camera. Removal of pituitary tumors can be performed with this approach.
  • Cranioplasty: there are situations where a window of skull has to be removed and not replaced, such as with head trauma, brain bleeds, infections. After the situation has resolved, the window can be covered with a custom made plate, usually made of special plastic material.
  • Shunts: conditions can arise where the normal fluid produced in our brain, called cerebrospinal fluid, accumulates abnormally. This excess fluid can cause problems, such as headaches, confusion, altered mental status, even coma and death. A shunt is a tube with a pressure valve that can take this fluid from the brain to a part of the body where it can be absorbed. An example of a condition when shunt placement is helpful is Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus NPH).
