Current visiting and mask wearing rules


All neuro surgery (brain surgery) is carried out at Salford Royal Foundation Trust (SRFT).

There are several types of surgical procedure that are offered and your neuro-surgeon will discuss which is the most appropriate one for you.

They include:

  • Biopsy – the removal of a small piece (sample) of the tumour. This is sent to the laboratory for tests which allow a diagnosis to be provided.
  • Craniotomy – a more extensive operation to some or all of the tumour.
