The Apollo world of care

Neurosciences

Neurosciences (Neurology & Neurosurgery)

    Neurosurgery is a highly complex surgical branch which deals with the brain, spine and nerves. It requires a high level of surgical expertise (as every neuron is important), state-of-the-art equipment, years of experience backed by a good intensive care unit and other specialty backup essential to give an excellent outcome.

  • We offer services for children, adults as well as the geriatric patients.
  • Advances in neuroanaesthesia, neurosurgical intensive care and neuro-imaging technology have played a significant role in the development of modern neurosurgery.
  • The focus has now shifted to minimally invasive techniques to further decrease the mortality and morbidity associated with surgery.
  • Our hospital constantly upgrades its technology and makes sure the team of doctors are updated with the latest available treatment procedures in the world and are skilled to carry out these procedures.

SpineSurgery

    The Spine Surgery Centres of Apollo Hospitals, India have many medical milestones to their credit - the first lumbar disc replacement in the country was performed at Apollo Hospitals, and several cervical disc replacements and lumbar disc replacements have also been performed.

  • Centres perform the full range of spinal procedures from Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (MISS), to major spine surgery procedures like complex spinal reconstructions.
  • The units are also well known internationally for complex deformity surgeries as well as revision spine surgery.
  • Indeed spine surgery in India has seen many advancements and innovations due to the excellent spine centres and the exemplary expertise of our spine surgeons.

Radiosurgery (popularly known as ‘Gamma Knife’ or ‘X-Knife’)

    It enables the physicians to deliver extremely accurate, high doses of focused radiation to a specific part of the brain minimising damage to surrounding normal structures.

  • No blood loss and very short hospital stay
  • Used for treating small tumors (both benign and malignant) and vascular anomalies of the brain
  • X-Knife has an advantage over Gamma Knife as it can be used for giving fractioned stereotactic radiotherapy (the Gamma Knife does not have this feature)

Neuroradiology

  • Cutting edge technology in 3T MRI, 64Slice CT and Cerebral Angiography (DSA)
  • Routine Ultrasound and Digital Radiography
  • Array of diagnostic and minimally invasive surgical procedure like MRI guided Brain Tumour Surgery, Radiosurgery,- Micro neurosurgery, Endovascular Neurosurgery, Interventional Neuroradiology, Endoscopic Brain Surgery, Endoscopic Skull Base surgery, Deep Brain Stimulation, Nerve and Plexus Surgery, Movement Disorder Surgery, Vascular Malformation
  • Team of highly trained specialists are available round the clock

Neurorehabilitation

  • Optimizes the potential of patient’s recovery
  • Each patient is evaluated and functional goals are discussed and planned with the patient
  • Multidisciplinary team of specialists comprising of Neurophysicians, Neurosurgeons, Paediatric Neurologist, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Consultation, Speech Therapists, Physiotherapy and Supportive Aid Specialists help the patients on the road to recovery
  • Neuro Rehab package is offered to patients at competitive price
  • Children have distinct reasons for neurological illness and require specialised care. Our well renowned and trained Pediatric Neurologists, provide specialised child care and management in neurological illnesses.

Neurophysiology

  • Electroencephalogram(EEG): An EEG is conducted to record and analyse electrical signals generated by the brain
  • Electromyogram (EMG): The EMG is an essential test to diagnose any nerve or muscle disease, which helps to establish an appropriate treatment
  • Nerve conduction velocity test (NCV): is an electrical test that is used to detect signs of nerve injury
  • Evoked Potentials (EP): measure the electrophysiologic responses of the nervous system to stimuli
  • Video EEG: This non-invasive procedure is used to establish the diagnosis of various forms of seizure activity
  • Transcranial Doppler (TCD)
  • Interventional Neuroradiology
  • Dedicated neuroangiography suite
  • We perform highly sophisticated and specialised procedures like coiling of intra cranial aneurysms, embolization of AV malformation Dural AV Fistula and CCF and treatment of giant aneurysms by parent vessel occlusion or flow reversal
  • We also treat Brain Attack / dissolve the thrombus or by intracranial angioplasty and stenting
  • More than 150 therapeutic procedures and 300 diagnostic procedures are done annually

Use The Ace Of Technology

  • Vascular procedure for AVM, aneurysm clipping and coiling backed by the state-of-the-art DSA suite
  • Radio surgery with Novalis
  • Functional neurosurgery for movement disorders like deep brain stimulation
  • Epilepsy surgery with intra-operative EEG and video EEG
  • Awake craniotomy
  • Spinal instrumentation for Spinal listhesis/ unstable spine

Testimonials

Brain tumour was successfully removed

When 5 months old infant girl Lacey Joy from Kenya was diagnosed with brain tumour. Her mother bought Lacey to Apollo Delhi trusting her gut. She was operated and brain tumour was successfully removed.When she turned 9,the tumour reoccurred again in a followup MRI but Dr Sudheer Tyagi once again successfully removed the dangerous tumour.
