Using remarkable high-tech equipment and a team of highly-trained surgeons, patients are having brain tumors removed...through their noses. Doctors map the patient's brain using GPS technology, then using four tiny surgical hands, the surgeons find, cut and remove the tumor...all through the nostrils.
What used to begin with the sometimes painful placement of a wire in the patient's breast to mark the location of the tumor can now be done with a much more precise and less painful method. Doctors call it radioactive seed localization, or RSL. The process uses a thin needle to place a tiny radioactive seed directly on the cancerous lump.
