Imagine a coordinate system similar to that of Earth, where every point on the patient’s skull and brain or spine is mapped.

Neuronavigation has made it possible to remove brain tumors that were previously considered “unoperative”. Almost no damage or tumor is “impossible to remove”, thanks to the help of Neuronavigation. These surgeries are short and have almost zero risk of complications.

Thus, patients recover faster. With this technique we can also make targeted therapeutic interventions, administration of local pharmaceutical agents (chemotherapy, etc.) to ensure the maximum possible therapeutic effect.
