A Year of:
Chemistry with laboratory cources

We can start a fundraiser for those who dont have the money to have the necessary surgeries. We can also wish for the best that all will go well.

during the neurosurgery
by: camille vega
shave part of the scalp and sanitize it
doctor makes incision through scalp
performs craniectomy
removes or frees what is causing the problem
skull piece is usually replaced after surgery w/ small metal plates,sutures,or wires
The bone flap may not be put back if the surgery involved a tumor or infection, or if the brain was swollen
usually awake for craniotomy
lowers risk for a functional abnormality because of a decrease in the brain, spinal cord, muscules, or nerve function
skull and brain have no pain receptors; the incision of the scalp is usually the only pain
hallucinate frequently with the local anesthesia
The patient will often stay at a medical center.
Their time at the medical center depends on their condition.
They also end up needing rehabilitation therapy.
