How Does a Craniotomy for Subdural Hematoma Work?
Step 1: Incision
This lets your surgeon gain access to the subdural hematoma or blood clot. The hole is temporary and the bone flap is reattached later.
Step 2: Remove Blood
Step 3: Suction Excess Blood
Step 4: Finish Surgery
Lastly, they suture the scalp closed. The surgery can take up to 3-5 hours to complete. An awake craniotomy could take 5-7 hours.
Step 5: Treatment Recovery
Expect scalp soreness around your incisions up to five days after surgery. It is common to have eye and facial swelling after surgery. This can take a few days to a week to disappear.
The total recovery process for a craniotomy for subdural hematoma surgery is lengthy. It can take 4 to 8 weeks or longer to fully recover from surgery.
