Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery
Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery in Southern California provided by ONE® Brain & Spine Center®
At ONE® Brain & Spine Center®, we specialize in minimally invasive brain surgery using keyhole approaches that provide enhanced safety, post-operative comfort for patients, and improved cure rates while reducing trauma, complications, hospital stay, and post-operative recovery time. Our award-winning neurosurgeon Robert Louis MD- highly trained by leading US neurosurgeons- specializes in treating brain and pituitary tumors and lesions using keyhole techniques, as well as conventional craniotomy.
Endoscopically assisted approaches allow access to intricate and delicate regions of the brain, the brain stem and vascular structures. By using small incisions and small cranial openings, tumors or lesions are accessed, drained or removed while limiting the amount of manipulation and navigation of normal brain tissues. Keyhole approaches allow direct access to deep lesions of the brain and skull base without having to expose the surface of the brain. These minimally invasive and sophisticated surgical techniques, along with advanced micro dissecting instruments, has enhanced safety, decreased post-operative discomfort or trauma and improved overall patient outcomes.
