Brain surgery refers to different procedures used to repair structural problems in the brain which can be caused by disease, injury or trauma, or birth defects.  The type of brain surgery or procedure is determined by the condition of the patient, the overall health of the patient and the location within the brain/cranial area which is affected. 

Because of the evolving technology and new and improved brain surgery techniques, nowadays some procedures can be performed without making an incision.  Please find below a list of common brain procedures.
