Neuroplastic Surgery for Neurofibromatosis

Neurofibromatosis treatment includes a variety of surgeries to remove painful, cancerous or disfiguring tumors. The neuroplastic surgery approach is most valuable in cases of complex wound closure and reconstruction following tumor removal, such as when local flaps to improve wound healing and scarring are needed. Many patients need multiple surgeries for these tumors, so working with a multidisciplinary team can help determine the best treatment strategy.
