Laser ablation is a minimally invasive treatment for brain tumors and epilepsy. It can give patients more treatment options if they are not eligible for surgery or radiation therapy.
Laser ablation uses carefully targeted laser energy to destroy parts of the brain that are cancerous or cause seizures. It has a faster recovery time than open brain surgeries, allowing you to get back to activities you love quickly.
