Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery Treatments and Services

Our neurosurgeons strive to provide minimally invasive options whenever possible for a variety of conditions. These include endoscopic arachnoid cyst fenestration, endoscopic colloid cyst removal, and endoscopic biopsy or removal of intraventricular tumors. Additionally, select patients are offered endoscope-assistedcraniosynostosis surgery.

Together, Brain Care Institute physicians develop an individualized treatment plan and collaborate throughout all stages of care. The team may comprise experts from:
