Jai Deep Thakur, M.D, assistant professor of neurosurgery at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine, recently gave a guest lecture for Tumor Talks, a platform for sharing the most up-to-date research being published in academic literature that allows presenters to discuss their work and experiences with neurosurgeons, residents and medical students around the world.

Thakur, who is a neurosurgeon and director of minimally invasive cranial and skull base neurosurgery at USA Health, discussed the use of minimally invasive approaches in managing complex brain tumors, especially in older patients. His work often utilizes surgical approaches to perform brain surgery through the nostrils, eyebrows and more precise focused openings to minimize unnecessary brain exposure, promote faster healing and expediting recovery process.

“The talk focused on how minimally invasive neurosurgery has improved outcomes in not just the general population but can be extended to an older patient cohort with good outcomes and faster recovery process,” said Thakur.

His research has been awarded the Gold Medal Award by the American Association of Neurosurgeons/Congress of Neurological Surgeons Tumor Section Society and has been published in the Journal of Neurosurgery – Neurosurgical Focus.

Tumor Talks is a collaboration of The Journal of Neuro-Oncology, the American Association of Neurosurgeons/Congress of Neurological Surgeons Tumor Section and the Lenox Hill Neurosurgery team.
