Neurosurgery

The Department of Neurosurgery, also known as Neurological surgery, is concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, surgical treatment, and recovery of diseases affecting every part of the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, central and peripheral nervous systems, and cerebrovascular system.

Brain surgery is a part of Neurosurgery for the surgical treatment of anomalies in the brain or its surrounding structures, such as tumours or aneurysms.

It's a life-saving operation that's carried out by professional neurosurgeons in a highly specialised environment in specific Operation theatres with advanced Neurosurgical equipments.

Adult and paediatric patients are also treated in the neurosurgical speciality. A neurological surgeon can also provide non-surgical treatment, depending on the nature of the injury or disease.
