Dr. Nader has operated on hundreds of brain tumors with great success. The following cases are a sample from his practice. Warning, the following images may be of a graphic nature that is not suitable for all viewers.
CASE #1 - Brain Tumor
A 47 year-old man presents with severe headaches for months and with the diagnosis of an intra-ventricular brain tumor. He visits with Dr. Nader for a second opinion after being told his tumor is too dangerous to be removed surgically. MRI is shown here: tumor is the grey oval shape in the center of the ventricle on the left (dark structure).
He underwent a craniotomy (interhemispheric approach) and a total resection of the tumor was achieved. MRI is shown here with no further tumor left. The ventricle is slightly dilated as this image was taken shortly after the surgery. He did very well after the surgery with no deficits.
CASE #2 - Brain Tumor
51 year-old woman with headaches and seizures presented to our clinic with the MRI shows here revealing a large brain mass in the frontal area.
She underwent a craniotomy and resection of the tumor was achieved. Pictures taken during surgery show opening of the skull with exposure of the tumor (A); tumor cavity after resection (B) and sample of tumor sent to pathology (C).
An MRI taken after the surgery shows resolution of the mass and no major deficits in the underlying brain
CASE #3 - Brain Tumor
61 year old man with headaches and blurred vision presented to our clinic shortly after his primary care doctor diagnosed him with the mass in his forehead.
(facial features are blurred for anonymity)
An MRI scan of his head shows a large mass eroding through his skull and part of his scalp and causing compression of his brain.
He underwent a craniotomy and craniectomy operation with removal of the entire mass.
He did very well after the surgery and woke up with no deficits. Pictures are taken in the recovery ward.
An MRI taken after the surgery shows complete resolution of the mass and no major deficits in the underlying brain
