What are meningiomas?


 

These are also classified as primary brain tumours though in fact they come from the lining of the brain.  When small they can often just be monitored or treated with Radiosurgery (see below) without the need for open surgery.  Most medium sized or larger meningiomas will require open surgery and this is best done by neurosurgeons who specialise in the treatment of brain tumours and who have access to the latest techniques including image guidance; a computerised navigation system which guides the surgeon precisely to the tumour.
