Awake Craniotomy

Awake craniotomy is a type of brain surgery performed while the patient is awake and conscious. During the procedure, the surgeon removes a part of the skull to access the brain but leaves the outermost layer of the brain exposed. The patient is kept awake to allow the neurosurgeon to monitor brain function and ensure that no critical areas are damaged during the operation.


At Aster Hospitals we provide the highest quality of care and a transformative experience for all your healthcare needs. With our network of multi-speciality hospitals, specialised doctors, and world-class technology, we bring global standards of medical care to our patients.

Is awake craniotomy painful?

No, the patient should not feel any pain during the surgery due to the use of local anesthesia and sedation. However, they may experience some pressure or discomfort during the procedure.

What are the benefits of awake craniotomy

The benefits of an awake craniotomy include:

  • Real-time monitoring of brain function to avoid damage to critical areas.
  • Better tumor or lesion removal accuracy.
  • Reduced risk of neurological deficits after surgery.
