Neuro Surgeon

Neurosurgery is a highly complex surgical branch which deals with the brain, spine and nerves. It requires a high level of surgical expertise. (as every neuron is important) State of the art equipment and years of experience backed by a good Intensive care unit and other specialty backup is essential to give an excellent outcome.

Common problems that a neurosurgeon deals with are head injury, spinal injury, brain tumors, spinal tumors, brain hemorrhage, hydrocephalous, nerve injuries or tumors, disc prolapse or herniation, spinal dislocation, unstable spine, congenital malformation like atlanto-axial dislocation, spinal dysraphism etc. The other diseases in which advanced neurosurgery may be required are seizure or epilepsy control and movement disorders like Parkinson’s disease. We offer services for children, adults as well as the geriatric patients.

Advances in neuroanaesthesia, neurosurgical intensive care and neuro-imaging technology have played a significant role in the development of modern neurosurgery. These have not only decreased the mortality but also improved the functional outcome. The focus has now shifted to minimally invasive techniques to further decrease the mortality and morbidity associated with surgery. It is no longer enough to save life - preservation of all functions, good cosmesis, shorter hospital stay and avoiding pain and discomfort are equally important. To fulfill these aims of excellence in neurological health care, the Apollo Institute of Neurosciences has been set up as a part of Dr. Pratap Reddy's vision of World Class Health Care facilities in India. To achieve these goals our hospital constantly upgrades its technology and makes sure the team of doctors are updated with the latest available treatment procedures in the world and are skilled to carry out these procedures.

A super specialty tertiary care centre, Apollo Institute of Neurosciences is designed to provide the highest levels of professional expertise and leadership in all major disciplines of neurosciences through an integrated team of neurologists ,neurosurgeons, neuroanesthetists and intensivists along with rehabilitation specialists dedicated to provide total patient care.

Neuroradiology:

Multislice Computerized Tomography (64 slice CT) - Computed tomography (CT) scanning is a state-of-the-art medical imaging technology essential to many neurological and spinal procedures.

3T Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) - Delivers the highest resolution brain imaging to identify any brain malformations, tumors, strokes, or injury that may generate a seizure disorder.

Digital Subtraction Angiography (DSA) - Detects abnormalities of the blood vessels of the brain such as narrowing and blockage, or malformations.

Neurophysiology :

Electroencephalogram(EEG)- An EEG is conducted to record and analyze electrical signals generated by the brain

Electromyelogram(EMG)- The EMG is an essential test to diagnose any nerve or  muscle disease, which helps  to establish an appropriate treatment.

Nerve conduction velocity test (NCV) - is an electrical test that is used to detect signs of nerve injury.

Evoked Potentials (EP)- measure the electrophysiologic responses of the nervous system to stimuli

Video EEG- This non invasive procedure is used to establish the diagnosis of various forms of seizure activity

Transcranial Doppler (TCD)- non invasively measures direction and velocity of blood in major intracranial vessels
