  • Overview

    Successful brain surgery correlates with the amount of tumor removed.  What if the neurosurgeon could visualize the tumor in situ during the operation?  Join host, Dr. Bill Rutenberg, and his guest Dr. John Ruge, associate professor of neurosurgery at Rush Medical College and director of the Midwest Children's Brain Tumor Center.  Dr. Ruge will discuss the novel technique of fluorescence-guided brain surgery.  This technique, used in Germany for 10 years, has recently been brought to the U.S. by Dr. Ruge, who is also the first to apply it in pediatric neurosurgery.
