Although surgery is considered to be the first step of treatment in any form of tumor but its feasibility depends upon the type, size and location of the tumor. It is not necessary that every kind of brain tumor might require surgery.
Indications of Brain Tumor Surgery
- Diagnosis of the type of tumor by taking a sample of the tumor for laboratory examination
- Complete resection of tumor
- Removal of the tumor as much as possible to slow down its growth and improve the symptoms.
- Remove the tumor in order to help other treatment
- Provide direct access for other forms of treatment like chemotherapy, radiotherapy etc.
- To relieve pressure caused by tumor on surrounding structures
Types of Brain Tumor Surgery
The different types of surgery that are performed in cases of brain tumor include the following:
Craniotomy: Craniotomy is the most commonly performed procedure to remove brain tumor along with a piece of bone. The removed bone is replaced and the tumor is sent for histopathology (biopsy). The surgery is performed using a high end microscope by any of the following techniques:
- Extended bifrontal craniotomy
- "Eyebrow" craniotomy (supra-orbital craniotomy)
- "Keyhole" craniotomy (retro-sigmoid craniotomy)
- Orbitozygomatic craniotomy
- Translabyrinthine craniotomy
Shunt: A narrow piece of flexible tube with a pressure regulated valve in between is called a shunt. This is used to relieve the intracranial pressure caused by obstruction of the natural brain fluid (CSF) pathway by tumor mass. The procedure involves insertion of a drainage system into the brain to remove or drain excess of blocked fluid into the peritoneal cavity.
Stereotactic surgery: This surgery is done by creating a three-dimensional image called stereotaxy using computers. It aims to find out the location and position of the tumor. In fact it can also be done to aid tumor removal, implant radiation pellets or for other treatments.
Embolization: It is a procedure used to reduce the amount of blood supply to a tumor by blocking the blood flow in the selected arteries. It is generally performed before the main surgery.
Endoscopy and endoscope assisted surgery: Endoscope is the tool which helps to closely visualize the tissue through small openings in difficult to reach areas. This tool can be used in various brain surgeries to precisely reach the target location without damaging the adjacent structures.
Adjuvant modalities to improve outcome: In addition to above mentioned surgeries, following surgeries may also be performed in relation to brain tumor treatment:
My son is 26 years old. His brain was declined and was operated at Hospital before 4 years. After operation he is unable to walk without support. He is doing physiotherapy everyday. Still he has not recovered. What should I do? Is second operation required? As per doctors consulted, not to go for second operation as it is not assured that he will start walking.

7 out of 10 people experience headaches almost every day. It is a very common condition. Headaches can be mild or severe, intermittent or persistent. A headache is characterized by a sharp or dull pain in the forehead or on the scalp.
Headache- Common conditions such as fatigue, lack of sleep, stress, hypertension (high blood pressure), sinusitis, typically cause headaches. A headache resulting from hypertension usually affects both sides of the head, particularly the temple regions.
Migraine- Severe headaches may indicate some other underlying condition like migraine. Migraines is the most complex and aggressive form of headache. It is characterized by debilitating, intense headaches. According to researchers, migraine is caused due to changes in the brainstem and nerve pathways. Environmental and genetic factors also play a role in inducing migraine attacks. Symptoms include vomiting and nausea, sensitivity to sound and light, tingling or numbness, difficulty speaking. Most migraine attacks last for about 4 hours or more.
How homeopathy plays a role in treating headaches and migraine pain-
There’s a fine line between getting a cure and getting relief from pain. Many people depend solely upon painkillers for years. But what they don’t understand is the fact that painkillers only provide temporary relief. Others look for home remedies to reduce pain and eventually learn to live with migraine headaches. Homeopathy does not approve of painkillers. Homeopathy digs deep into the root of the problem and eliminates the cause from within. That is perhaps the reason why homeopathy treatment takes time. The most effective homeopathy medicines for migraine headaches are- Belladonna, Glonoine, Sanguinaria and Spigelia.
Belladonna helps reduce the intensity of sharp throbbing headaches by eliminating pain and promoting restful sleep. It is also capable of improving the state of your nervous system. Glonoine is prescribed to patients experiencing aggressive migraine attacks. Exposure to sunlight or heat triggers migraine pain. Glonoine acts primarily on the nervous system and calms your nerves. It offers relief from ill effects of sunrays and heat in general. Sanguinara is very effective in treating headaches occurring on the right side of the head.
Homeopathy medications are safe, effective and yield long-lasting results. So instead of having strong painkillers, one can easily rely on homeopathy treatment for a cure. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
