Craniotomy procedure may also be performed to fix vascular brain malformations (e.g. cerebral aneurysms or arteriovenous malformations – AVMs), to fix local traumas such as fractures, local intracranial bleeding, or intra-cerebral brain infections and abscesses, or to treat a variety of neurological symptoms, such as severe epilepsy. This operation can also be carried out on children in order to repair skull birth defects.
Because brain surgeries are considered among the most complicated medical operations, these procedures are extremely specialized and are not offered in many overseas hospitals. At the Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, we carry out these neurological procedures on a regular basis and achieve very high success rates.
