Minimally invasive neurosurgery in Life Hospital uses small, flexible, lighted tubes called endoscopes to visualize various parts of the brain, skull base, or spinal cord through small openings. Endoscopes serve as small microscopes, magnifying critical anatomical structures so the surgeon can easily see the various diseased areas requiring repair, removal, or replacement. Because the use of endoscopes is much less intrusive into these anatomical structures than is conventional surgery, endoscopic neurosurgery is referred to as minimally invasive neurosurgery. The result is a faster and simpler procedure with greatly reduced post-operative complications, faster recovery, and less pain and scarring. The actual removal or repair of the problem is done as effectively, safely, and completely as with conventional “open” surgery.Our experts deliver superlative degree of clinical care with a focus on using minimally invasive techniques.
Recent technical advancements in endoscope design have produced equipment that is smaller and more efficient, with improved resolution and brighter illumination, than earlier models. Endoscopic neurosurgery has greatly simplified the management of many intracranial (within the brain) ailments in both adults and children, and has reduced surgical complications, shortened hospital stay, and minimized cosmetic concerns associated with many major neurosurgical conditions. The neurosurgery team across all units specialises in brain tumor surgeries – low grade gliomas, brain stem glioma and optic nerve glioma. The team of neurosurgeons have also displayed exceptional results in various other brain tumor surgeries – Medulloblastoma, Meningioma, Pituitary Tumors and Other Brain-Related Conditions. Paras Institute of Neurosurgery specialises in both adult as well as paediatric neurosurgeries.
