Laser Abalation-detail

What is Laser Ablation Surgery?

Laser ablation surgery is a treatment to remove tumours and other lesions by using light. A thin laser probe is placed in the brain which shows exactly what area to be heated.

Laser ablation is also called as:

  • Real-time MRI-guided laser ablation surgery
  • Stereotactic laser ablation
  • Thermal ablation or thermoablation

Laser ablation surgery is safer than traditional surgery and has very few side-effects. Motherhood hospitals are among the few children’s hospitals in the city that offer laser ablation for epilepsy and brain tumours. Our neurosurgeons and doctors work together to provide a minimally invasive procedure.

What happens during laser ablation surgery?

  • Your child will be given a general anaesthesia so that they will not feel any pain.
  • Then a very thin and flexible probe is inserted in your child’s scalp by making a small incision in the.
  • A child is moved into the MRI scanner and using the MRI display, the surgeon checks the precise location of the tip of the probe in the child’s brain.
  • The surgeon turns on the laser and the light comes out of the tip of the probe.
  • The MRI display shows where tissue is being heated and how warm it is getting which helps the surgeon to decide how much treatment to give and when to stop.
  • After the surgery, the probe is removed and the incision is closed with one stitch. The whole procedure with the laser takes only a few minutes but the setup before the treatment takes longer.

What are the benefits of Laser Ablation Surgery?

  • It is less likely to cause damage that could affect the functioning of child’s brain.
  • It is less likely to harm a child’s vision, movement, memory, learning and any other brain functions.
  • It is less likely to have pain and your child will recover faster.
  • MRI guidance makes the treatment more precise.

Our team is experienced in using advanced treatments to treat children with a broad range of disorders affecting their brains and spinal cords.
