                                              There are a number of factors associated with the prolonged survival of patients with brain cancer. One of the most important involves the amount of tumor that is removed during surgery. There is a fine but critical line between just enough and too much – it’s a delicate and complex balancing act. It is brain surgery, after all. Read More
