The Laser Ablation Center team studies and treats patients with the laser ablation process.
To target tissue in the brain, a neurosurgeon guides a thin laser fiber through a small hole in the skull and into the brain. In a process called Laser Ablation, the laser heats up and destroys a defined area of abnormal brain tissue minimizing risk of potential damage to surrounding healthy tissue. The patient is in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner throughout the ablation process. This lets the surgeon see an image of the brain, the laser probe placement, and how much tissue is being heated up and destroyed during the procedure.
