Healthier Me: Major Brain Surgery With No Visible Scars

Posted: Updated:

Major brain surgery without any major scars. It's hard to believe, but it's true.

Doctors at Sanford Health say technology has improved greatly and it's improving patient's results.

LuAnn Moen had a tablespoon-sized tumor taken out of her head and saw improvement immediately. The tumor was causing her to lose her vision, but it improved right after the surgery.

Doctors went up through her nose and used a high tech camera to navigate around the tumor.

LuAnn did not suffer any bruising or visual scars. She said she had a little pain on the bridge of her nose, but was impressed by how fast she recovered from brain surgery.

She had surgery on a Wednesday and was able to go home on Saturday.
