Technologies & Procedures
Gleneagles Global Hospital’s Department of Neurosurgery houses the latest technology and high-end machinery enabling our surgeons to procure successful results. Technologies available at our neurosurgery department include:
- MRI Computer-Assisted Brain Surgery: In any computer-assisted brain surgery, neurosurgeons use imaging technologies such as MR, CT or PET to create 3D models of the brain allowing them to chart a safe treatment plan, and later guide them through the surgery.
- Stereotactic Radiosurgery: SRS employs accurately focused beams of radiation that are aimed at tumours or other abnormal growth to destroy them, while ensuring the surrounding tissues remain unharmed.
- Awake Brain Surgery: The procedure involves anesthesia and sedation. Patient remains conscious through most of the surgery but is sedated before the brain is exposed for treatment by removing some parts of the skull.
- Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS): This involves implanting a brain pacemaker that is designed to send electrical impulses to specific parts of the brain. It is useful in managing chronic pain, Parkinson’s disease, tremor, dystonia, etc.
