Hamad Medical Corporation doctors perform ‘awake’ brain surgery. The surgery known as ‘Awake Craniotomy’ was performed on a 55-year-old female patient with a brain tumour, while she was still conscious.
The medical team were able to talk to the patient during the procedure, Which means they were able to ask her to perform simple tasks to make sure they were preserving her function.
Monitoring brain performance as the surgeon operates helps ensure the brain remained safe while the tumour is removed. The surgery took less than three hours and an MRI scan performed the following day showed the brain tumour had been completely removed. And the patient was able to go home just two days after surgery.
