Stereotactic/Functional

Stereotactic surgery is a technique used in neurosurgery to precisely localize an area of the brain or lesion. It can be performed using a frame or a navigation system. It is used to place a catheter or electrode into the brain with great precision, or perform biopsy of deep tumors or drain cyst and brain abscess. It can also be used in stereotactic radiosurgery to precisely radiate a deep lesion in the brain or spine. Stereotactic methods can also be used treat Parkinson’s disease, tremor, dystonia, trigeminal neuralgia, pain, obsessive compulsive disorder and epilepsy.
