What you need to know about Craniotomy Beirut

A Craniotomy is a surgical procedure to temporarily remove a part of your skull known as a bone flap in order to access the brain. It is often performed on patients that suffer from brain lesions or traumatic brain injury (TBI). Other uses of the procedure are stereotactic biopsy of the brain (to remove a piece of tissue for further examination under a microscope), aneurysm clipping, skull fracture repair, and epilepsy treatment.

What's the Recovery Time?

The recovery time depends on the underlying condition being treated. In general, full recovery may take up to 8 weeks until you can go back to your normal routine, including exercise and heavy lifting. However, some people are able to return to work and some of their routines within 4-6 weeks after surgery.

What's the Success Rate?

A craniotomy is considered safe, but it carries some potential side effects and risks. Bacterial meningitis happens in about 0.8% to 1.5% of people who had a craniotomy. Other side effects and risks include bleeding, infection, pneumonia, blood clots, seizures, unstable blood pressure, brain swelling, muscle weakness, leakage of cerebrospinal fluid, memory problems, paralysis, coma, abnormal balance, speech difficulty, and problems with the anesthetic.
