Neurosurgery is a medical speciality that treats disorders of the nervous system. This includes the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves. Neurosurgery is a very delicate and complex field of medicine that requires a high level of skill and training. Neurosurgeons use various techniques to treat their patients, including minimally invasive surgery. In addition to surgical treatment, neurosurgeons also offer non-surgical options, such as medication and rehabilitation, for treating patients with nervous system disorders. Neurosurgery is a highly specialised medical field requiring extensive training and experience.

Skull base and spine surgery is a type of surgery that is performed to correct problems with the bones and tissues in the spine and skull. The surgeon will make an incision in the back or side of the head and neck in order to access the spine and skull. They will then remove any damaged or diseased tissue and repair or replace any damaged bones. In…
Stereotactic surgery is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that uses imaging guidance to precisely target a specific area in the body. This type of surgery is often used to treat conditions that are difficult to reach with traditional surgery, such as tumours in the brain. Stereotactic surgery is typically performed using a special frame that…
Giant aneurysms are larger than 3 cm in diameter. The most common type of surgery for giant aneurysms is open surgical repair. This type of surgery involves making an incision in the chest or abdomen in order to access the aneurysm. Once the aneurysm is accessed, it is usually clipped or coiled to prevent it from rupturing.
Brain stem surgery is performed to remove tumours or other abnormal growths from the brain stem. This area of the brain is responsible for many important functions, including controlling heart rate and blood pressure, breathing, and movement. Because of its location and importance, surgery in this area is very delicate and requires a high level of…
Craniovertebral junction surgery is a type of surgery used to correct complex spine deformities. This surgery is typically used to correct deformities in the neck and spine that are caused by a congenital condition called craniosynostosis. This condition is a congenital disability that causes the bones in the skull to fuse together prematurely. This…
Endoscopic brain/skull base surgeries are minimally invasive surgeries that are performed using an endoscope, which is a thin, flexible tube with a light and camera attached to it. These surgeries allow the surgeon to see and operate on the patient's brain or skull base through small head incisions without making a large opening in the skull. These…
Epilepsy neurosurgery is a type of brain surgery used to treat epilepsy. This surgery is typically used when other treatments, such as medication, have not effectively controlled seizures. The goal of epilepsy neurosurgery is to remove the part of the brain causing the seizures.
This is a procedure performed to correct a congenital disorder known as AVM, where there is a formation of tangled arteries and veins which can lead to seizures, internal bleeding and neurological symptoms. It is possible to have an AVM without any adverse effects, but it is considered to be better to remove the risk through surgery. AVM's can form…
The nervous system is responsible for carrying messages between the brain and the rest of the body. This system is very delicate and can be easily damaged. When there is damage to the nervous system, it can cause problems with movement, sensation, and other vital functions. Neurosurgery is used to treat conditions that cause damage to the nervous system. Neurosurgery can help to improve the quality of life for many people.
Our neurosurgery treatment procedure is the best because it is minimally invasive, meaning that it causes less damage to the surrounding tissue. It is also more precise, meaning that the surgeon can target the specific area that needs to be treated. In addition, our neurosurgery treatment procedure is less likely to cause complications such as infection or bleeding. Book an appointment at our top hospital in Sarjapur Road, Bangalore.
Some common conditions that neurosurgery treats include:
Aneurysms: These are bulges in the blood vessels that can rupture and cause bleeding in the brain.
Arteriovenous malformations: These are abnormal tangles of blood vessels that can cause bleeding in the brain.
Brain tumours: These are abnormal growths of cells in the brain that can cause problems with brain function.
Cerebral aneurysms: These are bulges in the blood vessels in the brain that can rupture and cause bleeding.
Cerebral palsy: This is a condition that causes problems with movement and muscle coordination.
Hydrocephalus: This is a condition in which there is too much fluid in the brain.
Migraines: These are severe headaches that can be disabling. Neurosurgery can be used to treat some types of migraines.
Multiple sclerosis: This is a condition that damages the nerves. Neurosurgery can be used to treat some symptoms of multiple sclerosis.
Parkinson's disease: This is a condition that causes problems with movement.
Spinal cord tumors: These are abnormal growths of cells in the spinal cord that can cause problems with movement and sensation.
Stroke: This is a condition that occurs when the blood supply to the brain is cut off. Neurosurgery can be used to treat some types of stroke.

Spinal cord tumours
Traumatic brain injury
As with any surgery, there are some risks associated with neurosurgery. These risks include infection, bleeding, and reactions to anaesthesia. More serious complications are rare but can include paralysis, stroke, and death. Your doctor will discuss the risks of neurosurgery with you before the procedure.
Recovery from neurosurgery varies depending on the procedure that was performed. In general, you can expect to stay in the hospital for several days after surgery. You will likely have some pain and swelling around the incision site. You may also experience some numbness, tingling, or weakness. Your doctor will give you specific instructions on how to care for yourself at home. It is important to follow these instructions carefully to avoid complications.
In addition to your surgeon and anesthesiologist, your neurology surgical team may include a neurointensivist, neurophysiologist, and nurse practitioner or physician assistant.
The length of time it takes to recover from neurosurgery varies depending on the individual and the type of surgery performed. In general, however, most people can expect to feel some level of fatigue and soreness for several weeks after the procedure. It is important to follow your surgeon's post-operative instructions and take any prescribed medications as directed in order to help promote healing and reduce the risk of complications.
Neurosurgeries are always complex and daunting, that is why Manipal Hospitals and its team of doctors' goal is to ensure patients are on the path to a quick recovery through the least invasive, most appropriate, and advanced treatment available.
