Neurosurgery Plano TXInjuries and diseases that affect the brain --and therefore the need for neurosurgery Plano TX--are more prevalent than many people realize. Moreover, these conditions can be seriously debilitating and last for the remainder of a person's lifetime. However, there are a number of procedures and technologies neurosurgeons use to relieve suffering and save lives.

1. Craniotomy
This procedure involves removing a 'bone flap,' a small piece of skull--usually to access and remove a brain tumor.

2. Stereotactic Brain Biopsy
When multiple areas may be damaged, or when the problem area is difficult to access, 3-D imaging can be used to help.

3. Burr Holes
Burr holes can be used to drain and remove blood clots and to relieve pressure.
