Neurosurgery, as a specialty at Kamineni Hospital, is the perfect example of a revolution that happens when experienced and committed doctors are backed by the latest and advanced medical equipment and facilities. Our experts carry out several intricate procedures to treat a variety of neurological conditions.
Endoscopic neurosurgery is a minimally invasive procedure and does not involve large incisions or extensive dissection through brain tissue. Endoscopic brain surgery or intracranial surgery is performed for endoscopic tumor biopsy, colloid cyst resection, endoscopic cyst fenestration and treatment hydrocephalus. Patients are typically discharged within a short period of time from the hospital.
Apart from intracranial endoscopy, endonasal and spinal neurosurgery are also frequently performed. Conditions treated include pituitary tumors, chordomas, lumbar and thoracic hernias, chronic back pain and compression fractures, among others.
Frequently treated conditions include cerebral aneurysms, carotid and intracranial atherosclerosis and stroke, among others. Cerebral hemorrhages caused due to aneurysms and stroke require immediate neuro-vascular surgery. Treatment may include draining blood from the brain, aneurysm repair, endovascular embolization (inserting metal coils/meshes to block an aneurysm), open neurosurgery, or craniotomy. In many cases, patients may be able to have a minimally invasive endovascular treatment.
Trauma and Emergencies
The highly advanced 24-hour emergency treatment centre at Kamineni Hospitals treats a wide range of emergency health conditions including road accidents. The ER treats cases of road accidents, head injuries and accidental falls, successfully, in coordination with multiple disciplines, among which neurosurgery plays a central part.
Most often neurosurgeons at Kamineni Hospitals, deal with head injuries with raised intracranial pressure and restricted cerebral blood flow. Decompressive craniectomy, removing a part of the skull to relieve cranial pressure, is routinely performed.
To provide end-to-end care for patients undergoing neurosurgeries, Kamineni Hospitals has a dedicated intensive care unit equipped with an ICP monitoring system. Post-surgery patients are monitored closely by neurosurgeons and skilled multi-disciplinary teams.
Sometimes children may be born with anomalies of the brain, spinal cord, skull deformities and spinal deformities. In such cases, paediatric neurosurgery becomes the recommended line of treatment to alleviate painful conditions and/or improve quality of life. Some of the frequently performed paediatric neurosurgeries at Kamineni Hospitals include endoscopic third ventriculostomy to drain excess CSF and correction of craniosynostosis (early, abnormal closure of skull bones) by minimally invasive surgery enabling the baby’s brain to grow normally.
