Neurosurgery

Specialities

Neurosurgery is a well established super speciality, in the past neurosurgical procedures were riddled with high mortality and morbidity. However, with progress in basic knowledge, surgical skills aided by advances in technology the current mortality and morbidity is like any other surgery.

Aster RV Hospital, JP Nagar Bangalore ranks one among the Best hospitals for Neurosurgery in India. The department has an experienced, well renowned, astute neurosurgical team well-known for its high-quality neurosurgical care. The frontiers of neurosurgery are here with our Neurosurgeon in Bangalore using the latest cutting edge technology and state-of-the-art facilities to deliver unsurpassable, safe treatment to our patients. Surgeries on the brain, spine and peripheral nerve, simple or complex are performed with immaculate dexterity.

Being one among the top Neurosurgery Hospital in Bangalore which houses the latest innovation incorporated in the department is the intraoperative MRI suite. Only a handful of hospitals in India have this facility. At present ours is the only hospital in the private sector in entire South India to possess this facility. It enhances the safety, precision and extent of resection of complex brain tumours and instils confidence in the operating surgeons to push the limits of surgery.

In addition capabilities, intraoperative neuromonitoring, ultrasound and awake brain surgery enable surgical teams to perform complex brain and spine surgeries with least morbidity. Our neurosurgery department is fully equipped to perform minimally invasive brain and spine surgery, computer-assisted brain and spine surgery, endoscopic surgery, stereotactic biopsy and deep brain stimulation for Parkinson's disease and other disorders.

The Neurosurgery Department at Aster RV is regarded as the Best Neurosurgery Hospital in JP Nagar Bangalore. It is a part of an integrated, multidisciplinary team committed to providing the seamless best care to our patients. Top Neurosurgeon in Bangalore at Aster RV collaborate and work together with qualified and experienced neuro-anaesthetists, neuro-intensivists, neuro-radiologists and neurologists.

The Department of Neurosurgery takes care of the patients with compassion and empathy true to the tag line “we will treat you well”.

Key Procedures


Intra Op MRI (ioMRI) guided tumour resection

Surgery for Brain Tumours is always surrounded by an aura of fear owing to the risks involved. But over the years Neurosurgery has gone through several changes in terms of technique and technology, which has helped doctors perform many of the complex brain tumour surgeries confidently and safely.

Stereotactic Biopsy

A stereotactic biopsy is a surgical procedure where a thin needle is inserted into the brain after a navigational protocol image and extract an abnormal suspicious lesion for osteopathology studies. Small piece of tissue to examine under a microscope.

Minimally invasive spine surgery

Traditionally Spine surgery is done as "open surgery” which requires the surgeon to make long skin incisions and dissect the muscle along the back to reach the spine, such extensive increase blood loss, increase risk of infection and cause back pain thereby prolonging the recovery period. In recent days, however, technological advances have allowed more spine conditions to be treated with a minimally invasive surgical technique.

Peripheral Nerve Pathologies

Peripheral nerve pathologies are relatively rare conditions and include injuries, entrapments and tumours. Peripheral nerve injuries cause significant morbidity. It usually affects the younger population who are more active and many times the sole breadwinners of the family.

Functional Neurosurgery

Functional neurosurgery involves the restoration of neurological condition and function by neuromodulation.

Epilepsy surgeries

Patients suffering from recurrent seizures, refractory to medications may need surgery to reduce the frequency of seizure or to cut down on the dose and number of medications. In order to achieve a cure from epilepsy, it is important to identify the exact focus from where the seizure is originating from the brain, which generally requires a multitude of tests and assessment by experts. At Aster RV we have the latest equipment in terms of EEG monitoring, 3 Tesla MRI, and facilities to perform video EEG, electrocorticography, stereotactic EEG, which greatly aides in the decision-making process and performing a successful surgery.

Endoscopic Procedures

Endoscopy allows neurosurgeons to reach regions in the brain through minimally invasive approaches. Such areas were previously accessible only by extensive and invasive approaches that limited the ability to see the areas of interest. During this procedure, thin tubes called endoscopes are inserted through one or two small incisions in the skull or through an opening in the body. This tube-like instrument contains a small camera that allows the neurosurgeon to see detailed images of the problem area in the brain. This approach helps the surgeon assess brain not only through the skull, but also through pathways like the nose and sinuses as well.
