NICO BrainPath

Ground-Breaking Device For Treatment of Brain Tumors, Lesions or Blood Clots in Orange County

NICO Brain Path | Robert Louis, MDRobert Louis, MD is one of the few brain surgeons in Orange County to use NICO BrainPath™, a revolutionary technology that provides access and visualization of tumors, cysts, lesions or blood clots in the subcortical region of the brain. This innovative tool places a tube that safely creates a path to the surgical area, allowing your brain surgeon to move through the natural and delicate folds, tissues and fibers of the brain to access and remove tumors, lesions or blood clots and resection of soft tissues, giving patients better chance at survival.

NICO BrainPath™ is uniquely designed with an atraumatic tip that minimizes tissue damage by displacing tissues of the brain during advancement to the targeted location in the brain. The sheath remains in the brain after the obturator is removed to serve as a protective portal for surgeons to easily maintain access to the surgical site. Once in place, it creates a passageway for Dr. Louis to access the surgical site and then use a resection tool to remove the tumor, lesion or blood clot. This new treatment integrates other technologies such as brain imaging, neuro-navigation and optics
