This is minimally invasive surgery performed with the assistance of a stereotactic head frame. This helps surgeons accessing the deeper parts of the brain without damaging important adjacent structures of brain. This is useful for performing biopsies, draining abscess, evacuating hematomas, deep brain stimulation for Parkinsonism. Importantly, this can be done under local anaesthesia. The latest CRW system with accuracy of upto 0.1mm is the only one of its type available in Central India.
