At APCC, our expert neurosurgeons are dedicated to providing cutting-edge treatment options for meningiomas. Meningiomas are typically benign tumors that develop from the meninges, the protective layers covering the brain and spinal cord.

  • Accurate Diagnosis: Our experienced neurosurgeons collaborate with radiologists to accurately diagnose and characterize meningiomas. This allows us to tailor a personalized treatment plan for each patient.
  • Meningiomas: can occur anywhere on the surface of the brain and spinal cord. These tumors are essentially outside the brain but inside the head and cause symptoms by irritating the brain causing epileptic fits or by pressing on the brain or spinal cord causing damage. Symptoms will depend on the site of the brain being compressed; patients can have weakness, speaking and memory problems, difficulty in seeing things or even behavioural changes.
  • The treatment of choice: for most meningiomas is surgery, where the aim is to remove the entire tumor along with some normal dura (covering of the brain) to prevent the tumor from growing back. Depending on the location of the tumor your surgeon might decide to leave some tumor behind, either because the tumor has invaded into an important vein or artery or if it is tightly adherent to important nerves or brain.
  • Advanced Imaging and Navigation:Our state-of-the-art imaging and navigation systems enable our neurosurgeons to precisely locate and navigate around critical brain structures during surgery, ensuring the utmost precision and safety.
  • Multi-disciplinary Team: All patients require close follow-up after surgery. A team of doctors including the neurosurgeon, pathologist, radiologist and radiation oncologist will discuss all aspects of the case and might decide to institute an additional form of therapy (adjuvant therapy) such as radiation.

Treatment Options

  • Surgical Resection: In cases where surgical removal is recommended, our skilled neurosurgeons carefully plan and execute the resection of the meningioma while preserving surrounding brain tissue.
  • Radiosurgery:For patients with meningiomas that are in challenging locations or not amenable to surgical resection, we offer advanced radiosurgery options such as Gamma Knife and CyberKnife. These treatments deliver precise radiation to the tumor while sparing healthy tissue.

Recovery and Rehabilitation

We understand that a successful surgery is just the beginning of your journey. Our rehabilitation team works closely with you to ensure a smooth recovery process. The aim is to make you independent so that you can get back to as normal a life as possible after surgery.
