A craniotomy is a type of brain surgery that includes removing a piece of the skull. Your neurosurgeon may recommend a craniotomy to remove a complex tumor, treat blood clots and aneurysms, or to relieve pressure after an injury or stroke. The piece of skull is put back in place after your treatment is finished.
Stereotactic radiosurgery is a non-surgical technique that uses a high dose of radiation to treat tumors. Numerous radiation beams precisely target the entire tumor from all sides at one time.
