Neurology

Neurosciences involve the management of conditions related to the brain and spinal cord. It includes general neurology, neurosurgery, and spine surgery. Medical management may be needed for the treatment of stroke, dementia, and other conditions. Surgeries in the field of neurosciences are performed to treat injuries or disorders of the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves in all the parts of the body. Stroke rehabilitation is also included.

Some of the conditions of the nervous system that can be treated by surgery include – aneurysms, brachial plexus injury, arteriovenous malformation, brain tumor, carpal tunnel syndrome, intracranial hemorrhage, meningioma, multiple sclerosis, peripheral nerve injuries, spina bifida, etc.

The type of surgery performed mainly depends on the condition to be treated. Some of the common procedures in neurosurgeries include - deep brain stimulation, functional neurosurgery, awake brain surgery, neurovascular surgery, craniotomy, vagus nerve stimulation therapy, endonasal endoscopy, endovascular neurosurgery, etc.
