Our Avitis Institute of Neurosciences team comprises highly skilled and experienced neurosurgeons, neurologists, anesthesiologists, nurses, and support staff. They are passionate about providing compassionate care, utilizing their expertise to deliver the best possible outcomes for our patients.

The division of neurosurgery, with a cutting-edge technology, and a team of highly skilled professionals, strive to provide exceptional neurosurgical services to our patients.

Services at Division of Neurosurgery encompass comprehensive spectrum of advanced treatments for various conditions, including brain tumors, spinal cord injuries, degenerative spine disorders, neurovascular disorders, skull base tumors, epilepsy, and Peripheral nerve injuries, utilizing the latest techniques and technology to provide exceptional care to our patients.

Here are some of the neurosurgical services we provide:

  • Brain Tumor Surgery

    We specialize in the surgical treatment of both benign and malignant brain tumors. We employ advanced imaging techniques and intraoperative equipments to precisely locate and remove tumors while preserving healthy brain tissue.

  • Spine Surgery We offer a wide range of spine surgeries, including spinal fusion, disc replacement, decompression procedures, and minimally invasive spine surgery for conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, and spinal deformities.

  • Cerebrovascular Surgery We manage complex neurovascular conditions, including aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), carotid artery disease and conditions affecting the blood vessels of the brain and spinal cord or intracranial hemorrhages, involving a multidisciplinary team of neurosurgeons, interventional neurologist, radiologists, neurologists, and anesthesiologists.

Head and Spine trauma Management:

Avitis Institute of Medical Sciences is equipped to handle neurotrauma cases, including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and skull fractures.

Our multidisciplinary Polytrauma teaminvolving Emergency physician, Intensivits, Orthopaedic surgeons, Plastic surgeons, Gastrosurgeons, Faciomaxillary surgeons, Cardiothoracic surgeon and Anaesthesiologists works together to provide timely and comprehensive Polytrauma care, employing the latest techniques and technologies to optimize patient outcomes.

Brain Trauma Procedures:

Craniotomy: involves removing a portion of the skull to access the brain, to evacuate hematomas (accumulation of blood), remove intracranial foreign bodies, repair skull fractures, or relieve intracranial pressure caused by swelling or edema.

Decompressive Craniectomy: In cases of severe brain swelling or elevated intracranial pressure, a decompressive craniectomy may be performed – removing a large portion of the skull to allow the brain to expand and reduce pressure. Ventriculostomy: placing a catheter into the ventricles of the brain to drain excess cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and monitor intracranial pressure. This procedure helps control intracranial pressure in cases of hydrocephalus or traumatic brain injury.

Spine Trauma Procedures:

Spinal fixation procedures involve the use of rods, screws, and plates to stabilize the spine following fractures or spinal instability.

Spinal Fusion: to stabilize the spine by fusing two or more vertebrae together using bone grafts or implants. It is performed in cases of unstable fractures, spinal cord compression, or spinal deformities caused by trauma. Decompressive Laminectomy: In spinal cord compression due to fractures or other causes, removing a portion of the vertebral arch (lamina) to relieve pressure on the spinal cord and nerves.

Disc Herniation Repair: Spine trauma can sometimes lead to disc herniation, causing nerve compression and pain requiring procedures like microdiscectomy to remove the herniated disc material and relieve nerve pressure.

Epilepsy Surgery:

We offer surgical interventions for patients with drug-resistant epilepsy. Our neurosurgeons work closely with neurologists and epileptologists to evaluate patients and determine the most suitable surgical approach, including resective surgery or neurostimulation techniques.

Skull Base Surgery:

Our expertise extends to intricate skull base surgeries, addressing tumors, lesions, and abnormalities located at the base of the skull.

Pediatric Neurosurgery: in diagnosing and treating neurological conditions in children, including congenital abnormalities, brain tumors, hydrocephalus, craniosynostosis, and spina bifida.

Peripheral nerve surgeries:

For conditions affecting the peripheral nerves, which are the nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord. These surgeries aim to address nerve injuries, compressions, entrapments, or tumors. Here are some common peripheral nerve surgeries:

Nerve Decompression: for conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, and tarsal tunnel syndrome.

Nerve Repair/Reconstruction: When a peripheral nerve is severed or injured, nerve repair or reconstruction involving suturing the nerve ends together to allow for regrowth and reestablishment of nerve signaling, or in some cases, nerve grafts or nerve transfers, may be used.

Nerve Tumor Removal: such as schwannomas or neurofibromas. Neuroma Excision: A neuroma is an abnormal growth of nerve tissue that can develop after nerve injury or surgery. It can cause pain, tingling, or numbness. Excision of the neuroma involves removing the abnormal tissue and surrounding scar tissue to relieve symptoms and restore nerve function.

Brachial Plexus Surgery: The brachial plexus is a network of nerves that controls movement and sensation in the shoulder, arm, and hand. In cases of brachial plexus injury, surgical procedures may be performed to repair or reconstruct the damaged nerves. This may involve nerve grafts, nerve transfers, or nerve decompression to restore function and improve mobility.

Microsurgical Denervation: Microsurgical denervation is a procedure used to treat conditions such as chronic headaches or facial pain. It involves locating and selectively removing or interrupting the nerves that transmit pain signals, providing long-term pain relief
