The Department has a multi-disciplinary team of doctors, who combine expertise with latest technological developments to offer the best clinical services in neurology & neuro surgery. The department is further sub specialized with special emphasis on all modalities such as such as Functional Neurosurgery, Minimally Invasive Spine surgery, Endovascular Neurosurgery, Paediatric Neurosurgery, Neuro-oncology, Neuro-sonology, comprehensive stroke management, Epilepsy and Movement Disorders.Being one of the best multi specialty hospitals in Bangalore, Aster CMI serves the right blend of latest innovations and techniques, to serve patients with the best treatment and results. The Neuroscience department at Aster CMI is well-equipped with technology such as Intra-operative navigation, Neuro physiological monitoring with Electrophysiology and Ultrasound. The hospital is one of the first facilities in Bangalore to offer 3-Tesla MRI scan and Hybrid Cath lab.Primary among the unique services at Aster CMI is that of Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) which is currently available only with a handful of hospitals across the country. DBS is a neurosurgical procedure where a neuro-stimulator (in common parlance, a 'brain pacemaker') is placed on specific targets in the brain via implanted electrodes.
Our Neurosurgeons are specialize in Awake Surgery for various brain conditions to ensure minimal damage to vital centers of the brain. The Glowing Brain Tumor Surgery helps to delineate brain tumors from that of normal healthy brain tissue hence ensuring a more precise and total excision of the tumor. We are one of the few centers in India with such facility and expertise. Spine surgeries performed at the Neurosciences Department of the Aster CMI include microsurgery and minimal-access surgery for spine fractures, spinal tumors, cervical and lumbar disc replacement surgery.MIS decompression for spinal stenosis, scoliosis and deformity correction and cranio-vertebral junction surgery for congenital and acquired abnormalities. The Neurosciences department at Aster CMI consists of an outpatient and inpatient wing, along with a daycare unit and dedicated neuro ICUs, clubbed with the best diagnostic functionalities and advanced intraoperative fluorescence imaging. The hospital offers services with a modern approach involving imaging equipment and techniques that are required for traditional as well as minimally invasive surgery. In addition, Aster CMI’s neurosciences department is also among the first to have a team on call 24/7, to handle all kinds of neurological emergencies and trauma.
Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Surgery
Parkinson disease is one of the most common movement disorder caused by the degeneration of dopamine producing part of the brain called the substantia nigra. As dopamine is an important neurotransmitter that enables movement control, a decrease in dopamine leads to various symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. The disease is slow in progression, but the rate of progression might differ from individual to individual. The continuous loss of dopamine makes Parkinson’s disease increasingly disabling over time.
