Neuroscience - What we do

We treat our patients for a wide variety of acute and chronic neurological disorders requiring both medical management and surgical intervention.

Neurosurgery

Neurosurgery is the surgical speciality dealing with the diagnosis, prevention, treatment and management of disorders of the nervous system, including the brain and spinal cord.

We perform brain surgery for:

  • craniotomy for cerebral tumour
  • cerebral aneurysms
  • arteriovenous malformations
  • subdural haematoma
  • hydrocephalus
  • neuralgia
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • movement disorders
  • epilepsy
  • depression.

Spinal surgery procedures includes:

  • anterior cervical discectomy and fusion
  • posterior cervical discectomy
  • cervical Foraminotomy
  • insertion of artificial cervical disc
  • thoracic laminectomy, discectomy, fusion, vertebrectomy, decompression and removal of spinal tumours
  • lumbar laminectomy, discectomy, microdiscectomy, fusion
  • removal of spinal tumors (anterior or posterior approach).

Neurology
