CSF (Cerebrospinal fluid) leak, some forms of congenital hydrocephalus and intraventricular lesions were managed by endoscopic procedures.

The team also performs functional neurosurgical procedures like deep brain stimulation and epilepsy surgery. Neurological surgery for relief of cancer pain and chronic pain are practised here, like spinal cord stimulation and insertion of pain pumps.

Spine surgeries: Our surgeons are performing minimally invasive and endoscopic spine surgeries. We do spinal stabilization procedures for trauma and cancer disorders. We also perform surgeries for birth anomalies like spinal meningocele.

  • Cerebral aneurysms procedures like vascular clipping and coiling. Arteriovenous malformation (AVM) excision or embolization
  • Cerebrovascular bypass procedures
  • Skull base surgery for brain tumours
  • Pediatric neurosurgeries like cranioplasty for birth anomalies,
  • III ventriculostomy and V.P shunt surgery for hydrocephalus, Surgery for spinal meningocele
  • nterventional neuroradiology doing coiling of aneurysms & embolization AVM
  • Neurotrauma surgeries and intracranial pressure monitoring
  • Endoscopic surgeries for Pituitary tumours, intraventriculartumours and hydrocephalus.

Spine surgeries :

  • Minimally invasive spine surgeries
  • Endoscopic spine surgeries for lumbar disc
  • Occipito cervical fusion for Craniovertebral abnormalities
