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.
