Treatment Modalities may include:
The understanding and management of brain tumours has improved tremendously in the last two decades. Discovery of cell receptors, crucial enzymes and onco genes has made better understanding of tumour biology. There have been relentless efforts to improve therapeutic options for these tumours and thus resulting in improved surgical therapies, newer drugs and improvements in radiotherapy.
Stereotactic Surgery is a special field of neurosurgery designed to reach the tumour (focal point) in the brain in a minimally invasive way through a keyhole through a safe trajectory with precision. With advances in imaging calculations of X, Y and Z axis,reaching the target has become much more precise.
Symptoms due to brain tumors in children are usually due to pressure on nearby structures or blockage of normal flow of fluids through the brain. These symptoms include:
The presence of brain tumor is suspected when the child undergoes a detailed neurological examination of a doctor. This is confirmed by scanning techniques like Computed Tomography (CT Scan) And Magnetic Resonance Imaging(MRI).
Neurological rehabilitation is a program where in the doctor designs and supervises a program to deal with any issues pertaining to the nervous system, be it a disease, disorder or trauma of the same. This type of rehabilitation enhances the functioning of the individual, tapers the symptoms and the patient generally shows a marked improvement.
