Neurosurgery (or neurological surgery) is the medical specialty concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of disorders that affect any portion of the nervous system including the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and extra-cranial cerebrovascular system. The field of neurosurgery is one of the most sophisticated surgical specialties and encompasses advanced surgical and imaging technology as well as new research in molecular neurosurgery and gene therapy. There are five general categories of neurosurgical diseases that are commonly managed by neurosurgeons: cerebrovascular (hemorrhage and aneurysms); traumatic head injury (THI) (traumatic injury caused by accident); degeneration diseases of the spine; tumors in the CNS; functional neurosurgery; surgery for congenital abnormalities; and neurosurgical management of the CNS.
- M.Ch. Neurosurgery residents are trained in basic neurosurgery, emergencies, accidents, strokes and brain hemorrhage. They also learn about deep brain simulation, pediatric brain surgery and skull-based surgery.
- The training given by the department ensures residents can sharpen their skills in identification, analysis and decision-making around surgery.
- DM Neurology (the medicinal department of Neurosurgery) students spend 3 months in the department and vice versa.
The department features high-end facilities including neurosurgical microscopes, neuro
endoscopes, CT scan, MRI and a dedicated critical unit among others –
- Conmed& Valley lab Electrocautery.
- Neurosurgical Microscope.
- Head fixation system with self-retaining Retractor.
- Craniotome System.
- CT Scan & MRI, Image Intensifier TV.
- Dedicated critical care unit with ventilators, Online and ICP monitor.
