In this episode we will be joined by our expert guest Dr. Shabbar Danish to discuss the growing role of stereotactic laser ablation in treating brain tumors. We will explore which tumors are good candidates for laser ablation, which should be resected via craniotomy and where equipoise exists such that the surgical approach would vary depending on the surgeon.
