Neurosurgery (or Neurological Surgery) is the surgical specialty involved in the treatment of disorders of the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves.
Inamdar Hospital Neuroscience Program provides high-level, advanced care closer to home for the patients. Our experienced, board-certified neurologists and neurosurgeons diagnose and treat conditions affecting the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and muscles.
The hospital’s facilities and staff are able to treat a variety of conditions, including Parkinson’s Disease, epilepsy, headaches, stroke, neuropathy, myasthenia gravis and multiple sclerosis.
Inamdar Hospital has Stereotactic Neurosurgery Technology (SNT). Like GPS for the brain, this technology makes it possible for experts to achieve a superior level of precision in intracranial surgery. It is safer, requires a smaller incision and reduces the risk of damage to healthy tissue.
Craniotomies to treat chronic bleeding in the brain, spinal and disc surgeries, spinal bone fusions and Vagal Nerve Stimulation are performed at Inamdar Hospital. For epileptic patients, vagal nerve stimulation can reduce the frequency and intensity of epileptic seizures, prevent them in some cases, and lessen the patient’s dependency on medication to control their epilepsy.
Other Neuroscience services include carotid ultrasounds, lumbar punctures and electro-encephalograms (EEGs), which detect abnormalities in the electrical activity of the brain, and electromyographies (EMGs), used to measure muscle and nerve response to electrical activity. EMGs help physicians identify muscle conditions that might cause muscle weakness, such as muscular dystrophy.
