Ablative Surgery

Ablative surgery is a type of surgical therapy that refers to the removal of tissue or a part of an organ in the human body. This technique has been widely used in neurological research and therapy to treat various conditions such as brain tumors, epilepsy, and movement disorders. The surgery is considered a last resort option after other therapies have failed or been ineffective. In neurosurgery, ablative surgery targets areas of the brain responsible for causing neurological symptoms. The goal is to remove or destroy diseased tissue, which can reduce the severity or frequency of seizures, tremors or other movement disorders. One method of ablative surgery involves the use of a laser fiber, which is placed into the brain and directed at the targeted tissue. The heat generated by the laser destroys the tissue, reducing its ability to cause neurological symptoms. Another technique is radiofrequency ablation, which uses high-frequency heat generated by an electrode that is directed into the brain tissue to destroy the targeted area. Ablative surgery is considered a highly specialized procedure that should only be performed by a qualified neurosurgeon with experience in the field. There are risks associated with the procedure, such as bleeding, infection, and damage to healthy surrounding tissue. Therefore, careful consideration and proper preparation is required before the surgery is recommended. Despite the risks, ablative surgery has proven to be an effective treatment for certain neurological conditions. It can improve the quality of life for patients by reducing or eliminating symptoms that impact their ability to function.
