For some people who are wondering how could that happen, this type of operations or surgeries is necessary in some cases such like if there is complession on some motor nerves like the optical nerves or olfactory or the hypoglossus to detect the patient response and if the situation is no more longer causing damage or loss of function, I hope that was helpful, thanks a lot.

Outstanding! So happy to see this excellent surgeon not only remove the patient’s tumor, he’s asking the patient questions as well as asking him to count. So exciting to hear the patient respond by counting and not missing one # as he’s counting. Stroke free zone! 🙏🤗. Congratulations Dr. for an exemplary procedure!
