Awake Neurosurgery

Awake neurosurgery represents a pioneering approach to tumor excision, allowing patients to remain fully conscious during the procedure. This innovative technique offers several advantages, particularly for tumors located in critical brain areas responsible for language, movement, or vision. Here's how we leverage awake neurosurgery for optimal patient outcomes:

Conscious Sedation:

    • Patients undergoing awake neurosurgery receive conscious sedation, enabling them to remain awake and cooperative throughout the procedure.
    • Conscious sedation ensures pain-free surgery while allowing the surgical team to interact with the patient and assess neurological functions in real-time.

Real-Time Assessment:

    • Awake neurosurgery facilitates real-time assessment of neurological functions, such as language, motor control, and vision, during tumor excision.
    • Any disturbance in brain function can be promptly identified, allowing the surgical approach to be modified to minimize the risk of neurological damage.

Precision Tumor Resection:

    • By performing surgery while the patient is awake, neurosurgeons can precisely navigate around critical brain areas, ensuring maximal tumor removal while preserving essential neurological functions.
    • This approach minimizes the risk of postoperative deficits, such as weakness, speech difficulties, or vision loss, enhancing overall surgical outcomes.

Patient-Centric Care:

    • Awake neurosurgery prioritizes patient comfort and safety, offering a unique opportunity for patients to actively participate in their own care and treatment decisions.
    • Patients experience reduced postoperative recovery time and may benefit from improved functional outcomes compared to traditional surgery under general anesthesia.

Specialized Expertise:

    • Our neurosurgical team has extensive experience and expertise in performing awake neurosurgery, ensuring the highest level of precision and safety for each patient.
    • We employ advanced intraoperative monitoring techniques to optimize surgical outcomes and minimize potential risks.

By embracing awake neurosurgery, we aim to revolutionize tumor excision procedures, offering patients a safer and more personalized approach to neurosurgical care. Through meticulous planning, real-time assessment, and patient-centered techniques, we strive to achieve optimal outcomes and enhance the quality of life for individuals facing brain tumors.

Advanced Neurosurgical Solutions for Movement Disorders

Neurosurgery has emerged as a crucial therapeutic avenue for managing movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease, tremor, and dystonia, especially in cases where medications provide inadequate relief. Our neurosurgical team specializes in offering innovative surgical interventions to alleviate the debilitating symptoms associated with these conditions. Here's how we address movement disorders through advanced neurosurgery:

Parkinson’s Disease Surgery:

    • For patients with Parkinson’s disease unresponsive to medication, we offer deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery. This procedure involves implanting electrodes in specific brain regions to modulate abnormal neuronal activity and alleviate motor symptoms such as tremor, rigidity, and bradykinesia.
    • DBS surgery has proven to be an effective and safe treatment option, offering significant improvement in motor function and quality of life for patients with medically refractory Parkinson’s disease.

Essential Tremor Surgery:

    • Essential tremor, characterized by involuntary shaking of the hands, arms, or other body parts, can significantly impact daily activities and quality of life. Surgical interventions such as DBS or focused ultrasound thalamotomy offer targeted relief by interrupting abnormal tremor circuits in the brain.
    • These minimally invasive procedures provide durable tremor control with minimal risk of complications, allowing patients to regain functional independence and enhance their overall well-being.

Dystonia Surgery:

    • Dystonia, a neurological disorder characterized by involuntary muscle contractions, can cause abnormal postures or repetitive movements that impair mobility and coordination. Surgical options, including DBS or selective denervation procedures, offer targeted relief by modulating aberrant neural circuits.
    • Through precise neurosurgical interventions, we aim to alleviate dystonic symptoms, restore motor function, and improve quality of life for patients struggling with this challenging condition.

Multidisciplinary Care Approach:

    • Our neurosurgical team collaborates closely with movement disorder specialists, neurologists, and rehabilitation therapists to develop personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient’s unique needs.
    • Comprehensive preoperative evaluation, meticulous surgical technique, and postoperative management ensure optimal outcomes and long-term success for patients undergoing movement disorder surgery.

By harnessing the power of neurosurgery, we empower patients with movement disorders to regain control over their lives and experience meaningful improvements in motor function and quality of life.
