Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) Procedures in Neurosurgery - What it is

Minimally Invasive Surgery in Neurosurgery can be used to diagnose and treat neurological conditions such as brain tumours, hydrocephalus (abnormal buildup of fluid in the brain) and movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease.

Traditional brain surgery requires removing part of the skull to allow access to the brain. In contrast, minimally invasive surgery usually involves making tiny incisions, e.g. 1 or 2 cm holes. Through these incisions, instruments with tiny video cameras are inserted, giving the surgeons an inside view and enabling surgical access to the affected areas of the brain.

With real time intra-operative Magnetic Resonance Imaging (iMRI) and Computed Tomography (iCT) scanning, and advanced image-guidance navigation system capabilities, surgeons are able to monitor the patient’s progress and perform more complicated surgeries with greater accuracy and improved patient outcomes.


MRI technology allows for better accuracy in minimally invasive neurosurgery.
