Surgery for gliomas has been dogged by controversy for decades. The need for radical resections and the extent of such resections has been a subject of many debates. The all-elusive cure coupled with the complex biology of the disease feeds this pessimism. However, advances in technology and integration of adjuncts into the operating room, along with the evolution of specialist training in this field, has seen improving outcomes documented in the ever-increasing scientific literature. This commentary provides an overview of this evolution and the status of contemporary glioma surgery.
