Neurosurgery is a super speciality that deals with all kinds of neurological problems
which may require some sort of operative or non-operative interventions. We at Sri
Balaji Action Medical Institute have a full team of Neurosurgeons, Neuro-Radiologists,
Neuro-Anaesthetists, Neuro-Intensivists and Neuro-Physiotherapists who work together
as a single entity at all times, because our patients’ health is our priority!
We are well-equipped with all the modern & advanced equipments and instruments required
in any Standard Neurosurgical Centres. We have dedicated a Neurosurgical Operating
Suite with the best-in-class instruments for Endoscopic and Microscopic Neurosurgery;
also, a complete team involving Neuro-Nurses and Neuro-Technicians to work day and
night in OT.
We provide the best comfort and care to all kind of Emergency Neurosurgery. For
patients, it means that any of the following emergency clinical conditions will
attract complete care and urgent attention by our team at any time:
Also, we routinely deal with
- Head Injury
- Spine Injury
- Brain Tumours
- Brain Hemorrhage
- Severe Headache
- Sudden weakness of Hands/Legs
- Severe Backache
Brain and Spine Tumours :
- Endoscopic Spine Surgery
- Endoscopic Brain Surgery for Hydrocephalus
- Brain Tumours
- Spine Tumours
- Pituitary Tumours
- Spondylosis, Back aches, Neck aches (degenerative spine)
- Spine Fractures
- Disc Diseases
- Brain and spine deformities in infant and child
- Aneurysms clipping/coiling
- Spasticity of Limbs
- Neuralgias and Neuropathy
- Movement Disorders
- Peripheral Nerve Surgeries
- Epilepsy Surgery
- Stereotactic Surgery
All brain tumours are not cancers. Therefore it
requires a good evaluation of a patient to decide complete management. At Sri Balaji
Action Medical Institute we have 1.5T MRI, 64 slice CT, PET scan, SPECT and Gamma
camera. A team of Neurosurgeons, Radiologists, Radiation Oncologists, Medical Oncologists
and Pathologists who decide complete management protocol on case to case basis.
Benign tumours like meningioma, schwannoma, neurofibroma, pilo-astrocytoma, etc.,
require only complete excision of tumours for cure. Some malignancy may require
Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy after surgery. These facilities are available within
the campus with most advanced Radiation machines.
For rehabilitation, a separate team of Physiotherapists is available. Behavioural
therapy, psychological assessment and psychiatric treatments are provided in-house
and on OPD basis by Clinical Psychologists and Psychiatrists.
Aneurysmal bleeding in brain has high mortality and morbidity.
It requires highly skilled operating hands and sharp clinical acumen of a Neurosurgeon
to treat aneurysm ruptures. If treated properly such patients become as normal as
before. At Sri Balaji Action Medical Institute, we have all modern facilities for
clipping and coiling of ruptured/un-ruptured aneurysms.
It is a very common problem nowadays. Earlier it only used to
be a common problem of people in the age group of 50s and older, but it is more
common in young population now. Lifestyle changes have been attributed amongst other
known risk factors. This age group is economically most productive. So not going
to work is a severe economic loss to individuals and society as a whole. In the
long run patients suffer from depression, emotional and other psychological problems.
Backaches are being treated rather partially by Family Physicians, Physicians, General
Surgeons, Orthopaedicians, Neurologists, Anaesthetists, Pain Clinic Physicians,
Physiotherapists, Homeopathic, Ayurvedic, Unani Physicians and others. In all modalities,
there is some improvement initially which is a happy phase for the patient. If complete
bio-physics of the patient’s spine is not studied in conjunction with body’s physical
make-up and lifestyle; he is going to deteriorate sooner or later.
Therefore such patients must visit a Neurosurgeon who operates spine. At Sri Balaji
Action Medical Institute we take unanimous decisions with a supportive team approach
and are well-equipped to deal with complex spinal problems.
Most of the cases actually do not require any surgery or injection therapy. If required
at all, we do an Endoscopic Spine surgery which is beneficial for both back and
neck. It is done by a very small incision and the patient can go home the same evening
and return to their work within a week. A patient need not come back for stitches
removal as none is put into the skin. Similarly, different forms of Cervical and
Lumbar Spondylosis and Spine fractures require different approaches.
Paediatric Neurosurgery :
Late marriages and early diagnosis have increased
the incidence of congenital Brain and Spinal malformations. At Sri Balaji Action
Medical Institute, a team of Neurosurgeons, Neonatologists and Senior Paediatricians
take all effort to diagnose precisely any such malformations. We intervene at appropriate
time so that the future development remains as normal as possible. Large Head size,
abnormal body weight ratio, short neck, tilted spine, disfigured head shape and
seizures are few features which should be brought to immediate notice of parents
and a Neurosurgeon/Neurologist before it is too late.
At Sri Balaji Action Medical Institute, we operate the baby as early as a newborn.
Functional Neurosurgery :
Refractory Limb Spasticity, Refractory Parkinsonism,
Intractable Pain, Intractable Seizures may improve by electric stimulation of different
areas of nervous system. We put Deep Brain Stimulators with high precision in Parkinson’s
disease and OCD’s. Excellent results are seen with skilled team of Neurosurgeons
Peripheral Nerve Surgeries :
Peripheral nerves are sometimes involved due
to metabolic diseases or traumas, in this affected limb do not function properly
and may have intractable neuropathic pain. Microsurgical decompression or nerve
transfer surgeries help such patients and have appropriate functional outcomes.
Head and Spine Injury :
Road Traffic accidents on highways and expressways
are high velocity polytrauma, in which head and spine suffer the most. It is the
young population who are the main sufferers. The losses of such incidents have a
huge impact especially economically on family and society. Very important is the
timing and critical decisions to be considered during early phase of such head and
spine injuries. If intervened on time, even serious head injuries do survive! We
at Sri Balaji Action Medical Institute provide a very standard approach on war footing
for such an emergency.
Brain Hemorrhage and stroke :
Brain Hemorrhages and other forms of Brain
attack require aggressive team work of Neurosurgeons, Neurologists and Neuro-Intensivists.
Large Intracerebral Bleeding requires life saving surgical evacuation.Large Infarcts
(area of brain with no vascular supply) require life saving Decompressive Craniectomy.
