Neurosurgery in India's Best Hospitals | Neurosurgery Cost in India is amongst the Lowest in the World

  1. 1. World's Most Advanced Medical Treatment in India - Get free Expert Medical Opinion and Treatment Estimate Cost Neurosurgery in India's Best Hospitals: Neurosurgery cost in India is amongst the lowest in the world All the medical operations that deal with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of any nervous disorder are termed as neurosurgeries. These include the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and extra-cranial cerebrovascular system. A variety of symptoms such as paralysis, muscle weakness, poor coordination, loss of sensation, seizures, confusion, etc. may originate as a result of neurological disorders. Neurosurgery (or Neurological Surgery) is the medical specialty concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of disorders that affect the entire nervous system including the brain, spinal column, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and extra-cranial cerebrovascular system. Neurosurgery is a branch of the surgery discipline which focuses on the brain
  2. 2. and spinal cord. It is an extremely advanced form of surgery, requiring many years of training, and a high level of precision and experience on the part of the surgeon. What are Neurological Disorders?  Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis  Aphasia  Asperger Syndrome  Arachnoiditis  Dystonia  Encephalitis and Meningitis  Encephalopathy  Facial Nerve Problems  Fainting  Guillain-Barre Syndrome  Head Injury  Hematoma  Huntington Disease  Internal Bleeding  Lead Poisoning  Learning Disabilities  MELAS Syndrome  Meralgia Paresthetica  Motion Sickness  Multiple Sclerosis  Myasthenia Gravi  Arteriovenous Malformation  Autism  Blood Clots  Brain Aneurysm  Brain Concussion  Brain Hemorrhage  Brain Tumor  Canavan Disease  Cauda Equina Syndrome  Cerebral Palsy  Charcot-Marie- Tooth-Disease  Compartment Syndrome  Complex Regional Pain Syndrome  Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease  Devic's Syndrome  Dizziness  Pick Disease  Pinched Nerve  Stroke  Stroke Prevention  Thoracic Outlet Syndrome  Tourette Syndrome  Tremor  Trigeminal neuralgia  Vertigo  Ramsay Hunt Syndrome  Restless Leg Syndrome  Reye Syndrome  Seizure  Seizures Symptoms and Types  Sinus Headache  Spinal Cord Injury  Stem Cells  Peripheral Neuropathy  Neuropathic Pain  Parkinson's Disease  Narcolepsy  Pseudotumor Cerebri  Progressive Supranuclear Palsy

Laminectomy: A laminectomy is a surgical procedure in which the surgeon removes a portion of the bony arch, or lamina, on the dorsal surface of a vertebra, which is one of the bones that make up the human spinal column. It is done to relieve back pain that has not been helped by more conservative treatments. In most cases a laminectomy is an elective procedure rather than emergency surgery. A laminectomy for relief of pain in the lower back is called a lumbar laminectomy or an open decompression. Craniotomy: A craniotomy is a procedure to remove a lesion in the brain through an opening in the skull (cranium). A craniotomy is a type of brain surgery. It is the most commonly performed surgery for brain tumor removal. It also may be done to remove a blood clot (hematoma), to control hemorrhage from a weak, leaking blood vessel (cerebral aneurysm), to repair arteriovenous malformations (abnormal connections of blood vessels), to drain a brain abscess, to relieve pressure inside the skull, to perform a biopsy, or to inspect the brain. Craniotomy is distinguished from craniotomy (in which the skull flap is not immediately replaced, allowing the brain to swell, thus reducing
  4. 4. intracranial pressure) and from trepanation, the creation of a burr hole through the cranium in to the durra mater. Rhizotomy: Rhizotomy is the cutting of nerve roots as they enter the spinal cord. Rhizotomy (also called dorsal Rhizotomy, selective dorsal Rhizotomy, and selective posterior Rhizotomy) is a treatment for spasticity that is unresponsive to less invasive procedures. Rhizotomy is performed under general anesthesia. The patient lies face down. An incision is made along the lower spine, exposing the sensory nerve roots at the center the spinal cord. Individual nerve rootlets are electrically stimulated. Since these are sensory nerves, they should not stimulate muscle movement. Those that do (and therefore cause spasticity) are cut. Typically, one quarter to one-half of nerve rootlets tested are cut. Corpus Callosotomy: Corpus Callosotomy is a treatment for epilepsy, in which a group of fibers connecting the two sides of the brain, called the corpus callosum, is cut. It is used to treat epilepsy that is unresponsive to drug treatments. A person with epilepsy may be considered a good candidate for one type of epilepsy surgery or another if he or she has seizures that are not adequately controlled by drug therapy, and has tried at least two (perhaps more, depending on the treatment center's guidelines) different anti-epileptic drugs. The purpose of this treatment is to prevent spreading of seizure activity from one half of the brain to the other. The brain is divided into two halves, or hemispheres, that are connected by a thick bundle of nerve fibers, the corpus callosum. When these fibers are cut, a seizure that begins in one hemisphere is less likely to spread to the other. This can reduce the frequency of seizures significantly. Stereotactic Radiosurgery: Stereotactic radiosurgery is the use of a precise beam of radiation to destroy tissue in the brain. This procedure is used to treat brain tumors, arteriovenous malformations in the brain and in some cases, benign eye tumors or other disorders within the brain. It works the same as all other forms of radiation treatment. It does not remove the tumor or lesion, but it distorts the DNA of the tumor cells. The cells then lose their ability to reproduce and retain fluids. The tumor reduction occurs at the rate of normal growth for the specific tumor cell. In lesions such as AVMs (a tangle of blood vessels in the brain), radiosurgery causes the blood vessels to thicken and close
  5. 5. off. The shrinking of a tumor or closing off of a vessel occurs over a period of time. For benign tumors and vessels, this will usually be 18 months to two years. For malignant or metastatic tumors, results may be seen in a few months, because these cells are very fast-growing. Meningocele repair: is surgery to repair birth defects of the spine and spinal membranes. Meningocele and myelomeningocele are types of spinal bifida. The surgery is necessary to close this abnormal opening to decrease the risk of infection and protect the integrity of the spina column and the tissue inside. A myelomeningocele is the most severe type of spina bifida because the spinal cord has herniated into the protruding sac. Neural tissue and nerves may be exposed. About 80% of myelomeningoceles occur at the lower back, where the lumbar and sacral regions join. Some people refer to myelomeningocele as spina bifida. Because of the exposed neural tissue, significant symptoms may be present. Neurosurgery in India - Important Advantages  World class operation theatres.  Top of the line diagnostics from world leaders such as GE, Siemens, etc  Highly qualified neurosurgeons with very strong academic credentials.  Many neurosurgeons in India have had extensive training in the West, Japan and South Korea  Success rate for neurosurgery in India is on par with or better than international standards  Neursurgery hospitals in India have cutting edge technology that is not available even at many centres in the West. For example Brain Suite incorporating intra- surgery MRIimaging  Neurosurgery cost in India is amongst the lowest in the world. The cost of neurosurgery in India is just a fraction of the cost in the USA. Neurosurgery cost in India is also significantly cheaper than cost of neurosurgery in comparable hospitals in other popular medical tourism destinations.  The low cost of neurosurgery in India is without any compromise on quality or success rate World Class Operation Theatres: A Differentiator at Neurosurgery Hospitals in India Neurosurgery in India's top hospitals is extremely successful on account of theworld class operation theatres and cutting edge technology that is available to neurosurgeons in India. For example:
  6. 6.  Stereotactic Radiosurgery Suite  Brain Suite (with Capability for Intra-Operative High-End Magnetic Resonance Imaging)  Neurosurgery Theatre for Endoscopic Procedures  X-Knife for Radio Surgeries  High Accuracy Computer Assisted Neurosurgery with Operation Theatre Linkage to CT Scanner and MRI Machine  Microsurgical Instruments for Neurosurgeries  Gamma Knife or Radiosurgery  Linear Accelerators ( LINACs) / CyberKnife for Radiosurgery  Neuro-Intervention Laboratory  Neurosurgerytheatre with Imaging Support for Spine Surgeries Hospitals Offer Revolutionary Interventional Neuro Radiology procedures in India: Treatment of brain and spine disorders are becoming less invasive with the advent of better imaging and interventional technologies. Interventional neuroradiologists in India now offer a wide range of minimally invasive neurosurgeries through angioplasty, placement of stents, treatment of vascular tumors, large aneurysm, embolization for resolution of arteriovenous malformations, etc What is Cost of Neurosurgery in India? A huge cost difference is evident in India when it comes to Neurosurgery. India is cheaper along with zero patient wait lists. Interestingly, the quality delivered at such a low cost doesn’t compromise the quality of treatment, as the foreign patients are accustomed to get in their respective country. This is due to the outburst of the private sector which is comprised of hospitals and clinics with the latest technology and best practitioners. The following cost comparison can give a right picture of the claim behind low cost treatment with quality: Procedure USA ($) UK($) India ($) Neurosurgery with Hypothermia 23,000 21,000 6,500 Brain tumor surgery 12,000 10,000 4,500 DBS 28,500 26,000 17,000 For more information visit: http://www.medworldindia.com https://www.facebook.com/medworld.india
