A craniotomy is a surgical procedure in which a part of the bone flap is removed from the skull to expose the brain. After the surgery is performed, the temporarily removed bone flap is put back in place in its original position. Carniotomies are named depending upon which bone flap is raised, for example, if the frontal bone flap is removed it is known as a frontal craniotomy.
All intra-dural Spinal Surgeries including implant
All intra-dural spinal surgeries including implant (it is a device, which is surgically placed into the body to restore function by replacing or reinforcing a damaged structure) cover all the spinal surgeries (such as spinal stenosis and spinal tumor surgery) and are carried out to rectify a disorder, affecting the spinal cord. Spine fusion surgery with instrumentation and spinal fusion surgery are also included in this category.
All Microscopic Operations including implant
Best neurologists in India operate using an operating microscope that offers proper lighting, optics3D features and zoom lenses which create better operating environment. The microscopes are motorized for ease of use and precision. Examples of microscopic guided spinal and neural procedures are surgery to stabilize spinal joins and vertebral bones and complicated spinal revision surgeries.
Brachial Plexus Injuries/Stereotactic Procedures
Branchial plexus (network) is a nerve group that flows from the spinal cord, through the neck region and travels down the arm. In stereotactic techniques, a needle is placed into a very small lesion (tumor) which provides an accuracy of one mm. Brachial plexus injuries are treated with techniques like nerve graft, nerve transfer, and muscle transfer procedures.
Treatment of brain tumors depends on the size of the tumor, malignancy stage, location, and metastasis. Radiation therapy, surgery, and chemotherapy are suggested approaches to tumor treatment.
Brain Tumor Excision
Brain tumor excision (removal) is an effective procedure for patients with Tumor. Excision works wonders for patients with pituitary tumors. Minimally invasive procedure for brain tumor excision includes extraction of the tumor by making a small hole on the skull known as Craniotomy or through nose known as Transsphenoidal surgery.
Burr-Hole aspiration for Abscess
It is a surgical procedure in which a burr-hole (small hole) is drilled into the skull which is followed by draining out the pus from the abscess.
Chronic subdural hematoma
A chronic subdural hematoma is a condition in which the blood gets accumulated between the outermost covering of the brain and its surface. It involves craniotomy along with irrigation or suction. In minor cases, the surgery for subdural hematoma involves inserting a small catheter through a hole that is drilled in the skull as in craniotomy. This is then followed by suctioning out the blood.
Deep Brain Stimulation
This procedure is recommended for patients who are suffering from Parkinson's disease, obsessive-compulsive disorder, major depression, Tourette syndrome, and chronic pain. In this process, a neurostimulator is implanted which delivers the electrical impulses through the electrodes to specific parts of the brain to treat the disorder.
It is a surgical treatment of spinal decompression which includes removal of the herniated disc that is causing compression of the spinal cord and nerve root.
In this treatment, the bone cement injected into the fractured vertebra by making a small hole in the skin i.e. percutaneously. The surgery helps to relieve the back pain caused due to vertebral compression fractures.
It is a surgical procedure to remove the lamina to relieve pressure on the spinal cord. Lamina is the back of the vertebra which covers the spinal canal. The process enlarges the spinal canal which in turn removes the pressure on the spinal cord.
It is a surgical process, where a part of the herniated disc is removed. Micro-discectomies for Cervical and Lumbar Discs
It is a minimally invasive process; micro-discectomy for cervical and lumbar discs involves the removal of herniated cervical and lumbar discs.
Peripheral Nerve Surgery
The peripheral nerve surgery is indicated for the patients suffering from tumors, peripheral nerve injury or any other disorders that affect the nerves that connect the spinal cord and brain to other parts of the body.
Revision Surgery for Lumbar and Cervical Disc Disease
In those cases where the patients who have undergone lumbar or cervical disc surgeries still suffer from back pain because of the nerve damage, they may need a revision back surgery to correct the former surgeries.
Thoracoplasty is a surgery that includes the process to lessen the rib hump in cases of scoliosis. Rods may be used to lessen the hump.
A two-level spinal fusion is indicated for those who are suffering from severe pain occurring at the two levels of the spine. In this process, two or more bones of the spine are joined to decrease mobility thus relieving pain.
Spinal Fusion- 1 Level
This is a procedure in which two vertebral discs are joined and are known as one-level spinal fusion.
Spinal Fusion + Decompression + Arthroplasty
It is a combination procedure of Spinal fusion that can be accompanied by arthroplasty and decompression. In this surgical procedure, a bone from the pelvic bone is extracted to form a bridge between the vertebrae. This procedure is recommended for patients suffering from abnormal curvatures of the spine, fractures, or arthritis of the spine.
During this surgery, the endoscope or surgical instrument is introduced through sphenoid bone and nose into the brain to remove a pituitary tumor
VP Shunt or CSF Shunt Procedures
VP Shunt or CSF Shunt Procedures is done to cure hydrocephalus. It is a condition where there is an accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain. Ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt procedure includes creating an alternate pathway to drain excess cerebrospinal fluid.
