stereotactic neurosurgery

stereotactic neurosurgery

Neurosurgery A procedure in which needles or electrodes are passed through brain tissue into designated trouble spots Pros Therapy is performed on inaccessible tissues deep in the brain Cons Healthy or essential neural tissue is damaged by the transit of the needles to the therapeutic site. Cf Magnetic stereotaxis.
