For the removal of brain tumors, the following are your surgical procedures:

  • Craniotomy: There's an opening made on the skull. Following which, the surgeon removes as much of the tumor as is possible to.
    Even partial or complete removal helps relieve symptoms and as an added advantage can also reduce the amount of tumor to be treated by radiation therapy or chemotherapy.
  • Biopsy: If the tumors cannot be removed manually, then to know which other therapies will be effective in destroying them, a surgeon will scrape out a small piece of the tumor and study its composition using a microscope so as to decide further course of treatment.
    • Stereotaxis: Doctors utilize a special head frame (like a halo) and CT scans or MRI, so as to find the exact location of the tumor. The surgeon makes a small hole in the skull and then guides the needle all the way to the tumor.
    • More Advanced Techniques to enhance your biopsy:
      • Brain mapping to find functional pathways near tumors and prevent organ damage.
      • Endoscopy for biopsies and spinal fluid pathways.
      • Intraoperative MRI also is available to increase the rate of tumor removal.


The cost of brain tumor surgery removal in India is: Rs. 2,50,000 to 7,50,000. However, the actual prices may exceed the given range, and the prices vary depending upon the location of center, the experience of surgeon, preferred surgery choice, severity of concern and other technologies to enhance surgeries, also value-added services provided by your centre.

 

We do not provide such surgeries ourselves, but you can use our network to find doctors who provide such services at reasonable prices, do discuss their success rate, their set criteria for qualifying eligible patients for these surgical treatments, pre-operative measure & post-operation care, as well as side effects & risks - Neurosurgeon in India.

Neoplastic pathology means any disease which causes a tumor, whereas arachnoid cyst means that it is just a fluid-filled sac and not a tumor, so the report merely suggests that there is a possibility of either 2 affecting your mother, but it doesn't conclude anything, so we can't be certain about whether it's a tumor or not.
For tumors, surgery will be the main line of treatment, followed by either chemotherapy, or radiation therapy, or both.
Arachnoid cyst wouldn't need a treatment, but if you do go ahead anyway, or if there's some complication that results from it, then surgery would be needed.
We are attaching our page which concerns neurologists who have a good track record and provide affordable services - Neurosurgeon in India.

Spinal deformity surgery is considered in the event that:

  • The patient is experiencing severe pain which is not being relieved by physical therapy, bracing, and/or medications.
  • The deformity is continuously progressing.
  • The condition has resulted in patient having a physical deformity that is unbearable.
  • The condition has led to compression of the spinal cord or nerve roots.
  • The deformity originated from fractures.
  • The deformity is of a huge magnitude that it is likely to progress even if skeletal growth is complete.

So she could be satisfying above conditions if she was suggested to get a surgery. But you can refer to this page if you want to get consulted by other doctors for second opinions - Neurosurgeon in India. Come to us if you have any unaddressed query!

Hello, Transverse myelitis is an inflammation on both sides of one section of the spinal cord (in your case it is cervical). This neurological disorder damages the insulating material of the nerve fibres which results in interruption of the nerve conduction system. Usually, recovery begins from two to twelve weeks of the first onset of symptoms and may continue up to two years. In case, if there is no improvement in symptoms within several months then the recovery is difficult. About one-third of these patients show partial or full recovery. However, take a second opinion from a neurologist. Don't lose hope. Regular treatment will be of help. Hope our answer helps you. You can refer our page to find neurologists who can give additional information and second opinions - Best Neurologist in India.

Hello, You are having nerve root impingement which is responsible for your pain. Analgesics will give some relief for some time. Non-surgical treatment will not be of much help in the long run. Final remedy for your case will be keyhole surgery by a spinal surgeon. For further guidance kindly consult a good Neurologist, our page can help with this regards - Best Neurologist in India. Hope our answer helps you.
