A team led by Dr. Aditya Gupta at Artemis Hospitals in Gurugram performed a successful brain surgery on a 80-year old lady. The examination of the woman’s brain showed a very large tumor, measuring 7 cm in diameter which was pressing on the right side of her brain. Her age was a major concern for her family as they were apprehensive if her body would cope well with the treatment.
Dr Gupta examined the case and suggested to perform navigation guided Microsurgery which had a lower risk. Amidst the pandemic increasing the health risks, a successful surgery was executed that removed the tumor completely without posing any threat to the patient. The biopsy report further revealed that the tumor was non-cancerous discarding any further complications. On the second day after surgery, the lady was discharged. She would need to be on medication for at least one year. As a routine health check-up, she is advised to get the MRI done once a year.
Dr. Aditya Gupta, Chief – Neurosurgery & CNS Radiosurgery & Co-Chief – Cyberknife Centre, Artemis Hospitals said, “The surgery was challenging due to the age of the patient, but it was important to remove the tumor and prevent the development of cancer. We performed navigation guided Microsurgery having lower risk and healed the pain of the patient. The operation had no side effects and she was recovering fast. She responded really well to the entire course of treatment and gained consciousness within an hour of the surgery. She was shifted to the ward the next day.”
