About Neurology
Neurology is the medical specialty that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of disease involving the central, peripheral, and autonomous nervous system, including their coverings, blood vessels, and all effector tissues, such as muscles. Neurological disorders are disorders those that affect the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord), the peripheral nervous system, or the autonomous nervous system. Conditions treated by neurosurgeons include:
  • Spinal disc herniation
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Head trauma (brain hemorrhages,
    skull fractures etc.)
  • Cerebral aneurysms
  • Spinal cord trauma
  • Traumatic injuries of peripheral nerves
  • Brain tumors
  • Infections and infestations
  • Tumors of the spine, spinal cord and peripheral nerves

  • Some forms of hemorrhagic stroke, such as subarachnoid hemorrhages, as well as intraparenchymal and intraventricular hemorrhages
  • Some forms of pharmacologically resistant epilepsy
  • Some forms of movement disorders (advanced Parkinson's disease, chorea) - this involves the use of specially developed minimally invasive stereotactic techniques (functional, stereotactic neurosurgery)
  • Intractable pain of cancer or trauma patients and cranial/peripheral nerve pain
  • Some forms of intractable psychiatric disorders
  • Malformations of the nervous system
  • Carotid artery stenosis
  • Vascular malformations (i.e., arteriovenous malformations, venous angiomas, cavernous angiomas, capillary telangectasias) of the brain and spinal cord
  • Peripheral neuropathies such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Ulnar Neuropathy
  • Moyamoya disease
  • Congenital malformations of the nervous system, including spina bifida and craniosynostosis
About Neurosurgery
We have a dedicated team of experts who believe and practice the art of preservation so much that NOT A BIT IS LOST AT THE END OF THE SURGERY. Nervous tissue preservation and clearance of diseased tissue under microscopic and neuro – endoscopic vision is a daily routine.

  • Neurovascular:- clipping, coiling, revascularization by routine neurosurgical and endovascular procedures
  • Skull Base Surgery:- All complex lesion are maximally targeted with utmost safety to nervous tissue
  • Neuro-oncological surgery : for patients with brain and spinal tumors
  • Spinal Lesions:- Both intradural (intramedullary and extramedullary) an extradural are precisely targeted by per-operative C-arm assistance
  • Spinal degenerative diseases are treated with minimally invasive decompressive and instrumentation techniques
  • Neuro-Trauma Care : acute management, surgical treatment & stabilization, and neuro-rehabilitation
  • Acute Neuro Emergencies : Acute brain & spinal haemorrhages, other adult and pediatric neuro-emergencies

We have fully equipped facility for surgical treatment of movement disorder/ epilepsy/ other functional disorders. Our team of experienced neurosurgeons considers functional preservation as the main goal of surgery while dealing with the complex and difficult brain and spinal lesions. The neurosurgery department has modern and state-of-the- art technology, such as the high-definition surgical microscope and endoscopes, neuronavigation, CUSA, etc. We are also very fortunate to have senior neuro-imaging specialists, endovascular experts, critical care specialists, and neuropathologists to support this team.

Sellar and suprasellar tumors like pituitary adenomas, meningiomas, craniopharyngiomas, cysts etc. Intraventricular tumors are tackled by minimally invasive surgery (neuroendoscopy) as a routine. Children with hydrocephalus and deep-seated brain tumors are treated with pure neuroendoscopic methods.

All types of pediatric neurosurgery for congenital brain and spinal dysorders can be treated.
