The department provides comprehensive diagnosis and treatment facilities for nervous system diseases, disorders and injuries. Contrary to common perception, neurosurgery is not just brain surgery, it involves treatment of conditions, injuries to or disorders of the brain, spinal column and spinal cord, as well as the peripheral nerves in the body.
Our Department of Neurosurgery comprises specialized specialists and surgeons trained at performing complex procedures and providing superior care to patients suffering from neck/back pain, head injury, trigeminal neuralgia, stroke and nerve disorders like Parkinson’s disease.
The department is equipped with the latest infrastructure for the advanced diagnosis and management of various neurological disorders.
Brain & Spine Trauma
Spinal or brain injuries may result from accidents, falls or sports-related trauma. Sometimes post a major accident or trauma, no external signs of injury may be visible, but there may be internal haemorrhage or bleeding that can become life threatening over time. Infections and inflammation, aneurysm/stroke can also be a fallout of trauma.
While mild traumatic injuries or concussions can be treated with medications and rest, moderate to severe injury may require more aggressive treatment, even surgery to remove blood clots, repair fractures and relieve pressure (caused by bleeding) inside the skull.
Spinal trauma can also be minor or severe and may have long lasting consequences if not handled immediately and correctly. Injuries to the spine have the potential of causing permanent damage. Slipped or prolapsed disc is the most common injury that causes a disc to bulge out as a result of sudden trauma. Treatment may depend on the extent of injury, level of discomfort, your age and existing comorbidities. Spinal fracture is a serious condition that may require surgery.
MNBC’s neurosurgery department is equipped to handle all simple and complex trauma using medical or surgical treatment procedures.
Brain & Spine Tumour
Tumours of the spinal cord or brain are abnormal tissue growths present in the skull or the spinal column. They may be cancerous or non-cancerous. Any abnormal growth, whether malignant or benign, can put pressure on the sensitive nerve tissues, thus impairing normal function. While some tumours may respond to medical treatment, others may require surgery.
Our department offers a comprehensive range of treatment facilities, including chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery or a combination of the three for malignant tumours. Treatment plans depend on the size, location and type of the tumour.
Vascular neurosurgery involves identifying and treating abnormalities in the blood vessels of the spinal cord and brain. It is a minimally invasive procedure wherein the surgeon inserts a catheter inside the blood vessels.
Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
Minimally invasive spine surgery is performed as an alternative to traditional open surgery. It aims to treat various spinal disorders, including herniated disc, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis and scoliosis.
Spine surgery performed minimally invasively offers several potential benefits, like minimal cutting, small incisions, lesser pain, daycare options and faster recovery.
Paediatric neurosurgery deals with a wide range of neurological conditions in children. These include, congenital defects, hydrocephalus, brain aneurysm etc. MNBC has onboard experienced paediatric neurosurgeons and state-of-the-art medical and surgical facilities designed to cater to the specific needs of children. Doctors, assisted by trained nurses and advanced medical equipment, ensure the best possible care for the little ones.
Peripheral neurosurgery is performed to minimize pain and improve mobility in people with peripheral nerve disorders, like nerve sheath tumours, entrapment neuropathies and acute nerve injuries.
Diagnosing peripheral nerve problems can be difficult. The process involves a thorough look at the patient history and a physical examination, along with additional tests like EMG or MRI, to identify what’s causing the pain and whether surgery is the best solution.
Relieving pressure on a specific nerve at the injury site can reduce or eliminate chronic pain. Peripheral neurosurgery can be performed with minimal incisions in an outpatient procedure.
