Temozolomide is the chemotherapy drug used most often to treat brain tumours (Temodar). Other chemotherapy drugs may be recommended depending on the type of cancer. 

Some of the common surgeries for the removal of brain tumours include 

Craniotomy

The commonly advocated surgery to remove a brain tumour is a craniotomy. This procedure starts with making a tiny slit in the scalp area and pulling out a small piece of bone from the skull to give the neurosurgeon a detailed view and access to the tumour.

MRI-Guided Laser Ablation

MRI-guided laser ablation is a minimally invasive neurosurgical surgery that involves minor cuts and less scarring with the aid of lasers that efficiently target and destroy the tumour. Conventional open surgeries make it very difficult for a surgeon to access the tumour. Still, MRI-guided laser ablation is designed to tackle even complex surgeries such as glioblastoma multiforme and brain tumours that are located close to sensitive structures in the brain. MRI-guided laser ablation offers additional perks like reduced post-surgical pains and faster recovery time compared with craniotomy.

Endoscopic Brain Tumor Surgery (Neuroendoscopy)

Neuroendoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that removes a tiny hole in the skull without harming other areas to eradicate the tumour. It can also be done through the mouth or nose. A surgery done through the nose is called an endonasal endoscopic surgery. 

Neuroendoscopy results in,

  • Reduced pain is observed as compared to traditional surgery

  • Quicker revival of the affected area 

  • Minimal scarring

It can take 4 to 8 weeks to recover from surgery. Your cuts (incisions) may be sore five days after surgery. Your scalp may swell with fluid.
