Craniotomy/Brain Tumour Excision Surgery in India

Under general anaesthesia, the surgeon makes an incision along the planned line, exposes the skull and uses a special tool to cut away a section of the skull. The objective of the surgery would be the total removal of the tumour. Leading hospitals in India use extremely sophisticated surgery navigation. The sophisticated imaging and mapping technology enables a very close identification of tumour location. This facilitates very precise planning of the incision to avoid/minimise trauma to healthy brain tissue in the course of the surgery

Minimally Invasive Endoscopic Neurosurgery in India

Revolutionary technology has today made it possible for even complex brain surgeries to be carried out in a minimally invasive manner. In the past open surgery, with large incisions, was the norm for carrying out brain related procedures.

The development of the neuro endoscope has changed the way brain surgeries can be done. The neuro endoscope uses a video camera and micro-surgical instruments mounted on the tip of a flexible tube which can be maneouvred through complex body and brain anatomy. The endoscope can be as small as 2.7 mm, and the skin incision can be tiny - as small as that of a small coin.

Stereotactic surgery in India

Stereotactic Radiosurgery, contrary to the way it sounds, is not an invasive surgery. It is a non-invasive procedure that uses high-powered x-rays or gamma rays in a highly focused mode on a precisely defined portion of the body. This procedure has been used to treat brain disorders for several years but is now finding application in treating medical conditions in other parts of the body such as the lung, liver abdomen, prostate, head and neck as well.

Ventriculoperitoneal (V P) shunting for hydrocephalus in India

The VP shunt is a commonly performed neurosurgical procedure for the treatment of hydrocephalus, a condition in which there is a buildup of excess pressure within the brain. This procedure aims to transfer excess fluid from within the brain to either the abdominal cavity or the chest region of the body. The transfer of this excess fluid normalises the intracranial pressure (pressure within the brain)

Extratemporal Cortical Resection ( Epilepsy Surgery) in India

This procedure for the treatment of epilepsy is performed on an area of the brain other than the temporal lobe. The most common extratemporal site for seizures is the frontal lobe. The brain surgeon removes through a surgical procedure brain tissue that contains a seizure focus. Depending on the diagnosis and the location of the seizures, the surgeon may need to remove tissue from other areas of the brain as well.

Temporal Lobe Resection ( Epilepsy Surgery) in India:

This procedure for the treatment of epilepsy is performed on an area of the brain known as the temporal lobe. The temporal lobe is that portion of the brain which is located on either side of the head just above the ear. The brain surgeon removes through a surgical procedure brain tissue that contains a seizure focus. The front and middle portions of the temporal lobe are the sections of the brain that most often require surgery for epilepsy

Deep Brain Stimulation Surgery ( DBS) in India

Deep brain stimulation surgery is offered as a solution for patients suffering from Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis and tremors. In a surgical procedure, electrodes are placed in those parts of the brain that are causing the symptoms. The electrodes are connected to a kind of pacemaker placed under the collar bone. Electrical impulses sent from the pacemaker modify brain activity leading to control of tremors.

Endoscopic transsphenoidal surgery in India

This is a minimally invasive surgery in which tumour sites located in the brain such as the pituitary gland, sellar region, and sphenoid sinus of the skull are removed by using an endoscope or a microscope. The endoscope is inserted through the nostril to reach the tumour. Instruments for the removal of the tumour are inserted through the other nostril to carry out the surgery
.

Treatment of Arteriovenous Malformation ( AVM) in India

An arteriovenous malformation is an abnormal connection between arteries and veins which causes the draining off of oxygenated blood directly from the arteries to the veins. The abnormal section of the blood vessels is inherently weak and is prone to bursting, causing internal haemorrhage. Other symptoms of AVM are seizures, headaches, etc. AVM's are treated with medication, surgery, stereotactic radiotherapy or interventional neuroradiology/endoscopy. The choice of treatment will depend on the size and the location of the AVM.

Skull Base Surgery in India

The skull base in that portion of the head which comes between the brain and the following sensory organs: eyes, ears, nose and mouth. Skull base disorders normally take the form of tumours, which can be benign or malignant. Examples of benign tumours are meningiomas, pituitary adenomas and acoustic neuromas. Benign tumours may also need to be removed if they interfere or impact brain function. Surgery on this portion of the brain is called skull base surgery.
