Brain Tumours

Dr Olson performs many  brain tumour operations a year. She specialises in the more difficult tumours

She has a strong interest in developing minimally invasive brain surgery operations and performs several “keyhole” operations. She has spent some time working with computer navigation of the brain to ensure the least possible complications from surgery with the best resection using functional MRI and Tractography awake craniotomies and direct cortical stimulation.

She is a neurosurgical member for COGNO - the collaborative Australian research group for brain tumours meaning her patients can be participate easily in promising brain tumour trials.

It has been COGNOs opinion that with such vigilant dedicated treatment as we can provide through our multidisciplinary brain tumour meeting that patients are doing much better than they have ever done before. The group includes neurosurgeons, medical oncologists, pathologists, radiation oncologists, palliative care physicians, clinical nurses, occupational therapists, neuropsychologists, social workers and scientists all dedicated to the well being of our patients.

She has been instrumental in getting brain tumours banked for use by brain tumour researchers in the hope we may see better outcomes and personalised medicine for brain cancer patients.
