Information : Discuss your concerns with your doctors. The more information you have the better the understanding of what your surgeon hopes to accomplish. Brain surgery, as all surgery, is a serious undertaking but the current technical advances have made it much safer. Surgery is recommended because an improvement is expected your surgeon is the best source for information.
