Here at the Department of Neurosurgery, our neurosurgical experts deliver superlative degree of clinical care with a focus on using minimally invasive techniques whenever possible. We are committed to the evaluation and treatment of both paediatric and adult neurosurgical disorders.
Our associated programs in neurovascular surgery, neuro-oncology, epilepsy, spinal surgery, paediatric neurosurgery, functional and stereotactic neurosurgery are best in the world. We employ a full-range of neurosurgical technologies to provide the most up-to-date and effective treatment for the entire spectrum of neurological disease.
We provide treatment of some of the common problems including:
- Cerebral Aneurysm
- Arteriovenous Malformations
- Primary Intradural Spinal Tumors
- Subarachnoid Haemorrhage
- Primary Brain Tumour (e.g., glioblastoma, astrocytoma)
- Metastatic Spinal Column Tumours
- Metastatic Brain Tumour
- Arnold Chiari malformations
- Subdural Hematomas
- Deep Brain Stimulation for Movement Disorders (e.g., Parkinson’s disease)
Our neurosurgery team includes surgeons, physicians, nurses, anaesthesiologists, imaging professionals, psychologists and social workers who work together to deliver integrated, and personalized care for every patient. In parallel to providing world-class treatment, our doctors are also involved in scientific research that offers new hope for children with brain, spine and nervous system disorders.
We firmly believe in the fact that excellent results come from a blend of experience and technology. Therefore, we have state-of-the-art neurosurgical operating suites with a dedicated neurosurgical OR team. Features include intraoperative neurologic monitoring, sophisticated microscopes, and the latest stereotactic surgical navigation equipment to accurately pinpoint lesions and minimize the difficulty and duration of surgery.
