HEH Lunchtime Talk: Awake Brain Surgery

Dr Teo Kejia
Associate Consultant
Division of Neurosurgery


Neurosurgeons can now remove previously inoperable brain tumours located in critical parts of the brain more effectively. In the past, such tumours were treated with only a biopsy. Recently, new brain-mapping techniques are able to identify and avoid injury to sites of language, motor, and sensory function during surgery. This leads to improved outcome, including greater areas of resection, fewer neurological deficits, shorter hospital stay and longer survival.
