Minimally invasive brain surgery also called as endoscopic brain surgery is a type of neurosurgical technique which is safer and more effective than conventional surgery for patients with life-threatening conditions. Today using the advanced medical technology for even complex brain surgeries can be carried out in a minimally invasive manner. With the help of special devices and techniques, our neurosurgeons can, perform many procedures through a small incision. Minimally invasive surgery minimizes damage to normal brain tissue and it is much safer than the traditional open surgery.
Our highly experienced neurosurgeons who are specialised in the use of endoscopic techniques, ensuring the best possible outcome for our patients. They are carefully reviewing patients condition in a detailed examination to find the appropriate treatment. If it is possible for the patient our surgeons usually prefer minimally invasive surgery to open brain surgery because it is associated with less morbidity, less scarring and shorter recovery time.
The method of minimally invasive surgery depends on the size, location and type of the tumour. In some cases only a tiny incision around half an inch of diameter is used to reach the tumor however for some surgical approaches there is even no incision required. Patients who are diagnosed with pituitary adenoma, intraventricular tumor, meningioma, glioma, chordoma, skull base tumor, trigeminal nerve decompression, aneurysm (some clipping procedures) can be operated in a minimally invasive manner. Through our world renowned neurosurgeons we pleased to offer our patients the most advanced neurosurgical techniques for safely removing these tumors.
In order to provide a minimally invasive brain surgery technique surgeons use a specialized endoscope which calls neuro endoscope to perform surgery the surgery in the brain. The neuro endoscope has a video camera and micro surgical instruments attached at the end of a flexible tube which can move through the brain. During the surgery the camera provides the surgeon with high resolution images of the inside of the brain. It enables the surgeon to remove the abnormal tissue completely and spare the healthy tissue. The advantages of endoscopic brain surgery are smaller incisions and bone openings which result in less scarring, less pain, shorter hospital stay and quick recovery. Most patients are able to discharged from the hospital two days after the surgery.
If you are suffering from symptoms such as frequent headaches, nausea, vomiting, blurring of vision, loss of peripheral vision or double vision, gradual sensory and motor loss of arm or legs, difficulty in maintaining balance, speech, confusions, seizures, hearing problems, you have to consult with a neurologist or a neurosurgeon.
