In brief: Very good

The success of surgery depends largely on the location of the meningioma.
Ones that are alont the convexities of the brain that are readily accessible can be removed in their entirety with minimal morbidity. Tumors at the skull base are more difficult and often require more extensive approaches. These may be associated with higher morbidity.
