Just like any other tumour, brain tumour is the abnormal growth of cells in the brain. Brain Tumour can be benign or cancerous. The biggest problem with brain tumour is that if is always difficult to do a biopsy of the brain tumour to find out its nature. In most of the cases of brain tumour, MRI of the brain is the best investigation to find out the nature of the tumour. Once it is suspected that the tumour is malignant then it has to be removed through brain tumour surgery. Brain is a very compact organ controlling all functions of the body and slight mistake by the surgeon can have disastrous results. It is because of this complexity that most of the people try to find the best neurosurgeon in India for getting the brain tumour surgery done. Neurosurgery in India has always been very advanced and very complex brain tumour surgeries have been done by Indian Neurosurgeons for more than 30 years now. Today with the advent of very high precision microscopes, the brain tumour surgeries are not such a huge challenge. Intraoperative MRI differentiates between the live healthy tissue and cancerous tumour. The surgeons can then remove the brain tumour with great accuracy without touching the healthy tissue. Brain Tumour Surgeries done with such precision means that there are no deficits in the patient after the surgery.
In India neurosurgeons clasify brain tumors as grade I, grade II, or grade III, or grade IV. The most common type of primary brain tumors that are operated in India by neurosurgeons especially among adults are astrocytoma, meningioma, and oligodendroglioma. The most common type of primary brain tumors in children that are treated in India by neurosurgeons are medulloblastoma, grade I or II astrocytoma, ependymoma, and brain stem glioma. At Indian Neurosurgery we get all types of cases for brain tumours not only in adults but also in children. Also it is seen that not all tumours are operable. At Indian Neurosurgery India while deciding whether a patient has to be operated or not we look into the prognosis or the long term out come of the surgery. The decision taken is always in the best interest of the patient and family. In case the patient survival with surgery and without surgery is same we counsel the patients about the same.
The treatment is planned keeping in mind the physical condition of the patient and the possible outcomes of the treatment. At Indian Neurosurgery our aim is to deliver best results through best line of treatment whether through endoscopic brain tumour surgery, open surgery or gamma knife surgery. Conservative treatment is done when surgery is considered highly risky for the patient.
The cost of Brain Tumour Surgery would be in the range of USD 4000 - 8000. Simple and easily accessible tumours would cost less while more complex tumours would be costing on the higher side. Use of microscope and intraoperative MRI also adds to the cost. In some cases Craniotomy is done to remove most of the tumour and this is followed by Gamma Knife to radiate the remaining tumour. In such cases the cost of Gamma Knife Surgery is additional which is about USD 5000. Once the patient shares the medical reports, our neurosurgeons will be able to give a more accurate estimate of the costs. The hospital stay is normally 5-6 days in a brain tumour surgery and India stay would be around 2 weeks. The cost of stay in a hotel costs around USD 50 per day for two people including breakfast. Other costs are also very low in India.

Surgery is the usual first treatment for most brain tumors. With advances in imaging, earlier diagnosis, sophisticated planning, preoperative, anaesthetic management, special microscopes and surgical instruments, it is possible to remove significant amounts of brain tumour through brain tumour surgery with relative safety. The tumour's size and how fast it is growing also determine which symptoms a person will have. Howsoever, all Brain tumours do not require operation and many are treatable with radiation or chemotherapy or Gamma Knife.

Our Hospitals are located in the Northern Part of India in and around New Delhi. The nearest airport is Indira Gandhi International Airport at New Delhi. It takes 20 minutes drive from the airport to the hospital.
If the surgery is successful then the patient is shifted to the ICU from the operation theatre. The patient stays in ICU for 1-2 days and is then shifted to the room. The hospital stay would be 5-6 days and during these days the patient is made to become self dependent for doing most of the daily routine works. The physiotherapy team starts working with the patient for improving the balance and motion. The physiotherapy continues even after the patient gets discharged from the hospital and moves to a hotel. Brain tumours can recur again so a close contact with the treating doctor has to be maintained even after you return to your country. Regular periodic tests should be done to monitor the progress.
