Brain surgery and Craniotomy

The term "craniotomy" refers broadly to the surgical removal of a part (bone flap) from the cranium (skull) in order to get temporary access to the intracranial compartment. The name of the craniotomy changes based upon the region where the bone has removed. For example, if the craniotomy is opened in the frontal bone, it is known as frontal craniotomy. This procedure will be done as a part of another surgery which was done either to the brain or surrounding tissues. The bone flap will be kept back in place once the surgery completes. Some craniotomy procedures may use the guidance of computers MRI or CT scans to reach the precise location within the brain that is to be treated.
