Brain lobectomy is a surgery that is performed for patients who have a lesion or tumor on the brain.
A brain lobectomy is the removal of one of the lobes (portion) of the brain in order to remove a tumor or serious injury.
This procedure can take between 3 to 5 hours. It is performed under general anaesthesia although sometimes it is necessary to start with conscious sedation as, in order to minimise the area to be removed and avoid injury, the team may require you to be awake to ask you questions or ask you to make a specific movement… It will depend on the lobe being operated on.
After the surgery you will be transferred to the ICU where you will spend the first night, then you will be taken to the ward where you will stay for 5 or 6 days.
The length of your stay in Spain will depend on the extent of the lesion to be removed. Additionally, you may require some form of neurorehabilitation which would extend your stay.
Your medical team will advise you personally but you should expect to remain for a minimum of 3 weeks. Please be aware that complete healing of the bone may take up to 12 months.
If you undergo this type of surgery you will have to stay in Spain until the birth of your baby.
