The Department of Neurosciences at United hospital deals with treating and managing various disorders related to the nervous system. Our department is focused on providing comprehensive and personalized care to patients. We are updated with the most recent advances in the world of brain science and strive to give those advanced treatment experiences to each patient reaching us. Our department provides accurate diagnosis and treatment for patients with neurological disorders. The department has a leading and experienced panel of surgeons, doctors, and nursing staff trained in using the latest and advanced neuroimaging techniques. All necessary tests and facilities are available under the same roof for this purpose at United hospital.
Minimal Access Spine Surgery
It is a kind of surgery on the bones of the spine (backbone). This is a minimally invasive procedure where surgeons make smaller incisions than standard surgery. This often causes less harm to nearby muscles and other tissues when compared to open surgery.
Brain tumour surgery
Primary brain tumours begin in the brain and usually never spread to other regions of the body, while secondary brain tumours (or metastases) are caused by cancers that started in another area of the body. There are around 40 different types of brain tumours, which are divided into two categories: benign (slow-growing) and malignant (fast-growing). Surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or steroid therapy, or a combination of these treatments, may be used to treat brain tumours. Some tumours can be surgically removed altogether (craniotomy). Local control and survival improve with post-operative radiation.
Brain and Spine Trauma Management and Surgery
Brain and spine injuries often occur due to motor vehicle accidents, falls, and sports-related injuries. Some injuries may result from internal conditions like inflammation, infection, tumors, bleeding, or problems like aneurysms or strokes. Our hospital offers patients, the focused expert care needed to maximize the chance of full recovery and independence after a traumatic injury.
Neurovascular surgery is performed using open or minimally invasive surgical techniques to treat issues with the blood vessels of the brain or spine and spinal cord. Our expert doctors are trained and can perform both minimally invasive and open neurosurgical procedures.
Skull Base Surgery
The skull base is a complicated and crowded area with different openings where many blood vessels, spinal cord, and nerves all pass through. Skull base surgery might be performed to remove both cancerous and noncancerous growths and abnormalities on the skull base, underside of the brain, or the top few vertebrae of the spinal column.
Minimally invasive endoscopic surgeries
In minimally invasive endoscopic surgery, doctors use various techniques to operate with minimal damage to the body in comparison to open surgery. Doctors make tiny incisions and using small tubes and tiny cameras, and other surgical instruments, surgery is performed.
Epilepsy is one of the common neurological conditions which involves abnormal electrical activity in the brain, making a person more susceptible to having recurrent, unprovoked seizures. It is usually treated by medication, and in some cases, surgery and dietary changes are required.
Microvascular surgeries are procedures performed on tiny blood vessels, typically 3-5 millimeters in diameter, using an operating microscope, special surgical instruments, and tiny needles with ultrafine sutures. Microvascular surgery is done to reattach severed fingers, arms, hands, and another amputated parts to the body.
It is a surgical procedure that involves precise surgical targeting of anatomical structures in order to modulate neurologic function. The main aim is to improve the symptoms and quality of life of people suffering from chronic neurologic disorders; this demands minimal risk of inflicting morbidity and mortality.
A shunt is a hollow tube placed surgically in the brain (or occasionally in the spine) to help drain cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and redirect it to another location in the body where it can be reabsorbed. There are many types of shunts available, like lumbo-peritoneal shunt or ventriculo-peritoneal or, ventriculo-pleural shunt, ventriculo-atrial shunt, etc.
Peripheral nerve surgery
Peripheral nerve surgery is done to improve function and reduce pain and disability in patients with peripheral nerve disorders like entrapment neuropathies, acute nerve injuries, and nerve sheath tumors. It involves re-routing healthy nerves to take over the function of the nerves affected by your injury, disease, or condition.
