Brain Tumor Resection

Steps Involved in IVF:

Procedure Description

A brain tumor resection is a surgical procedure aimed at removing tumors from the brain. Tumors in the brain can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous), but regardless of their nature, their presence can interfere with the brain's normal functioning, leading to symptoms like headaches, seizures, and other neurological complications. The primary aim of the resection is to remove as much of the tumor as possible, thereby reducing or eliminating symptoms, halting the progression of the disease, and improving the patient's quality of life. For malignant tumors, resection is often the first step, followed by radiation or chemotherapy to ensure that all cancerous cells are eradicated.

The decision to undergo a brain tumor resection is based on various factors including the tumor's size, location, type, and the patient's overall health. The surgery's complexity varies based on these factors. For instance, tumors located in more accessible parts of the brain may be easier to remove than those situated in deeper, more functionally critical regions.

In the realm of medical tourism, many patients seek brain tumor resection abroad due to various reasons ranging from cost savings to specialized expertise. As with any medical procedure, especially one as critical as brain surgery, it's crucial for patients to be well-informed and prepared.

Procedure Duration

The duration of a brain tumor resection varies significantly based on the tumor's size, location, and type. Generally, the surgery can take anywhere from 2 to 5 hours. However, in complex cases or when the tumor is deeply embedded, the procedure can extend longer.

After the surgery, patients are usually required to stay in the hospital for monitoring. The typical hospital stay post-surgery is around 3 to 7 days. This stay allows medical staff to monitor for complications, manage pain, and ensure the patient is stable.

Recovery after brain tumor resection can be a lengthy process. While some patients might start to feel better within a few weeks, others might need several months. Factors like the patient's age, overall health, and the specifics of their surgery play a role in the recovery timeline. Physical and occupational therapy are often recommended to help patients regain strength and function.


  • Cost Savings: Many countries offer high-quality healthcare at a fraction of the cost compared to Western counterparts.
  • Specialized Expertise: Some destinations are renowned for their specialized neurosurgeons with extensive experience in brain tumor resections.
  • Advanced Technology: Access to cutting-edge medical technology not readily available in the patient's home country.
  • Shorter Wait Times: In some countries, patients might face long waiting periods for surgery. Medical tourism can provide faster access.

Potential Destinations:

  • India: Renowned for its advanced hospitals and skilled neurosurgeons.
  • Thailand: Boasts state-of-the-art medical facilities catering to international patients.
  • Germany: Known for its precision and high standards in neurosurgery.
  • South Korea: Emerging as a hub for medical excellence, especially in the realm of neurosurgery.

Risks & Considerations:

  • Travel Logistics: Managing post-surgical care while being away from home.
  • Language Barriers: Potential communication challenges in a foreign country.
  • Cultural Differences: Understanding and adjusting to different medical cultures.
  • Post-Op Follow-Up: Ensuring continuity of care once back in the home country.

How to Choose the Right Doctor and Hospital:

  • Accreditations & Certifications: Ensure the hospital meets international standards.
  • Doctor's Experience & Qualifications: Look for surgeons who have specialized in neurosurgery and have a track record of successful procedures.
  • Reviews & Testimonials: Previous patient experiences can provide invaluable insights.
  • Facility Infrastructure: Consider the technology and equipment available at the hospital.
  • Post-Operative Care: Check the protocols for aftercare, including potential therapy and rehabilitation services.

Frequently Asked Questions

What actually happens during hyperstimulation of the ovaries?

The patient will take injectable FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) for eight to eleven days, depending on how long the follicles take to mature. This hormone is produced naturally in a woman’s body causing one egg to develop per cycle. Taking the injectable FSH causes several follicles to develop at once, at approximately the same rate. The development is monitored with vaginal ultrasounds and following the patient’s levels of estradiol and progesterone. FSH brand names include Repronex, Follistim, Menopur, Gonal-F and Bravelle. The patient injects herself daily.

What happens during egg retrieval?

When the follicles have developed enough to be harvested, the patient attends an appointment  where she is anesthetized and prepared for the procedure. Next, the doctor uses an ultrasound probe to guide a needle through the vaginal wall and into the follicle of the ovary. The thin needle draws the follicle fluid, which is then examined by an embryologist to find the eggs. The whole process takes about 20 minutes.

What happens to the eggs?

In the next step, the harvested eggs are then fertilized. If the sperm from the potential father, or in some cases, anonymous donor, has normal functionality, the eggs and sperm are placed together in a dish with a nutrient fluid, then incubated overnight to fertilize normally. If the sperm functionality is suboptimal, an embryologist uses Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection to inject a single sperm into a single egg with an extremely precise glass needle.  Once fertilization is complete, the embryos are assessed and prepared to be transferred to the patient’s uterus.

How are the embryos transferred back to the uterus?

The doctor and the patient will discuss the number of embryos to be transferred. The number of successfully fertilized eggs usually determines the number of eggs to be placed in the uterus. Embryos are transferred to the uterus with transabdominal ultrasound guidance. This process does not require anesthesia, but it can cause minor cervical or uterine discomfort. Following transfer, the patient is advised to take at least one days bed rest and two or three additional days of rest, then 10 to 12 days later, two pregnancy tests are scheduled to confirm success. Once two positive tests are completed, an obstetrical ultrasound is ordered to show the sac, fetal pole, yolk sac and fetal heart rate.


Built into this technology there is a microscope with a powerful camera that allows the uninterrupted monitoring of the embryo during its first hours of life. In this way, we can keep a close eye on the embryo, from the moment when the oocyte is inseminated and begins to divide into smaller and smaller cells, until it can be transferred to the uterus.

Orthopedics Stem Cell


Research on mesenchymal stem cells regenerative properties in knee osteoarthritis. In these studies, researchers suggest that Stem Cell Therapy has the potential to regenerate lost cartilage, stop and reverse cartilage degeneration, provide pain relief, and improve patient mobility.


Stem Cell Therapy as an Alternative to Rotator Cuff & Shoulder Replacement Surgery. Stem cell therapy may offer an excellent alternative for patients looking to avoid shoulder joint replacement surgery, as well as many other surgical treatments for shoulder pain.


If you suffer from chronic or acute ankle pain or instability due to arthritis, cartilage loss, ligament strain or tear, or tendon damage, then you may benefit from non-surgical stem cell treatments or stem cell-enhanced surgery.

Back Pain

Patients now have a minimally invasive option. Stem cell therapy for back pain and disc herniations can potentially repair the damaged disc or facet joint, restore function, rehydrate the disc, and ultimately alleviate chronic pain.

Anti-Aging Stem Cell

Hair Loss

Stem cell therapy and PRP therapy have been shown to be most effective for: Those in the early stages of hair loss, patients who are not viable candidates for surgery and women who prefer to avoid hair surgery.
