About Surgical Tumor Removal
A tumor is an abnormal growth of cells that may be benign, or cancerous and life-threatening. We offer every type of neurosurgery to remove tumors, including open surgery and minimally invasive procedures such as neuroendoscopy.
Tumors can put pressure on your brain or spinal cord, causing symptoms like memory loss, blurred vision and trouble moving your arms and legs. Removing a tumor can ease symptoms and help prevent the disease from spreading to other parts of the body.
