Neurosurgery Procedures & Treatments

We offer a variety of neurosurgical procedures (treatments) for patients, ranging from deep brain stimulation to neuro-endoscopy. More information on our neurosurgery treatment options is available below:

Deep Brain Stimulation

Deep brain stimulation involves implanting electrodes within the part of your brain that affects mood. During deep brain stimulation, electrical impulses transmitted through the electrodes deep within the brain affect brain cells and chemicals to relieve depression. Learn more >>

Neuro-endoscopy

Neuro-endoscopy is a relatively new field in neurosurgery that has evolved and allowed for the safe and minimally-invasive treatment of deep seated tumors in the brain and skull base. A rigid fiberoptic lens with a working channel is used to visualize tumors within the ventricular system of the brain and permit excision or biopsy. With the use of a 3-6 mm endoscope, midline deep seated tumors can be removed with only a 5mm opening in the skull and a 2.5cam skin incision. Emory Neurosurgeon Dr. Costas Hadjipanayis is the only neurosurgeon in Georgia performing neuroendoscopic resection of colloid cyst brain tumors. Learn more >>

Stereotactic Neurosurgery

Stereotactic neurosurgery is a minimally invasive form of neurosurgery that involves 3D imaging to locate and treat small targets inside the body. Learn more >>

Craniotomy for Tumors

A craniotomy is a neurosurgical procedure in which a bone flap is removed from the skull to reach the tumor. Learn more >>
