Laser Ablation for Tumors

Using real-time, MRI-guided thermal imagery, surgeons are able to target and destroy brain tumors with minimal destruction to the surrounding tissue. Advantages of laser ablation include:

  • Minimally invasive – 3 mm hole versus large craniotomy
  • Minimizes damage to surrounding brain tissue and may enable better functional preservation
  • Very short hospital stay – typically just one day
  • Minimal pain or discomfort using this approach
