Neurosurgeons at Janvi Multispeciality Hospital use their years of expertise and experience in neurosurgery to help diagnose and treat nervous system disorders affecting the entire body, head, neck, spine, hands, arms, and legs. The Department of Neurosurgery provides some of the most innovative surgical procedures along with a range of non-surgical methods to restore the health of our patients and relieve their pain. Neurosurgeons perform minimally invasive surgery of the spine and the skull at Janvi Multispeciality Hospital.

- Protocol based therapy
- Comprehensive documentation
- Research centre
- Comprehensive Diagnostic facilities

- Genetic studies
At Janvi Multispeciality Hospital, our Neurosurgeons treat the following:
Brain tumors can be both benign as well as malignant.
- Awake craniotomy is used when the tumor is in an eloquent brain region.
- Traumatic trauma to the head includes the subdural, intracerebral hematomas, epidural, contusion of the spine, fracture with depression.
- Complex vascular disorders such as aneurysm, Arteriovenous malformation (AVM), Insertion of ventricular shunts for natural hydrocephalus pressure (NPH) or obstructive hydrocephalus, or the third ventricular endoscopy is applied where appropriate.
- Anterior cervical discectomy and instrumentation fusion – During this procedure, the cervical disks and/or spurs are removed. Upon removal of the disk the instrumentation is fused. Artificial disks used for cervical herniation and/or degeneration. Treatment of Posterior Cervical Vertebra Decompression Posterior cervical vertebral fusion.
- Discectomy – A part of the disc is removed from the backbone to relieve the nerve strain.
- Kyphoplasty / Vertebroplasty for fracture – It is a minimally invasive procedure that uses orthopedic balloons to gently raise the broken vertebrae in an effort to return it to the correct position.
- Microdiscectomy (minimally invasive spine procedure) – This operation is carried out on the lumbar spine that is done with a very small incision and removes only the part of the ruptured disk that pinches the spinal nerve causing pain.
- Decompressive Laminectomy with fusion and instrumentation or without fusion and instrumentation – This surgery is performed to treat stenosis of the spinal cord or spinal nerves and to relieve pain. Laminectomy eliminates bone and/or thickened tissue that narrows the spinal canal and squeezes the nerves and the spinal cord. Often foraminotomy is done along with it to alleviate pressure on the current root of the nerve. This operation is performed by cutting to the back by surgery.
- Anterior and Posterior lumbar interbody fusion – The surgeon connects two lumbar vertebrae (fuses) in this operation. In this section of the spine this helps to support the vertebrae.
- Spinal Cord Stimulator – A chronic pain medication where a tiny stimulator sends signals to your spinal cord to stop transmitting the pain messages to your brain.
- Carpal tunnel release – Carpal tunnel relief is a procedure for the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome, which is discomfort and hand weakness caused by the pressure on the wrist’s median nerve.
- Transposition of the ulnar nerve – Ulnar Nerve Transposition moves the damaged nerve to relieve pain and pressure. In this operation, a new tunnel is formed to the nerve.
- Peripheral nerve trauma surgery – The damaged region is detected with the aid of a nerve stimulator and often treated with nerve grafting accordingly. Uses the finest suture material that is much thinner than a scalp.
- Peripheral tumor in the sheath of the nerve – Tumor removal from a peripheral nerve is often difficult. Target is complete tumor elimination without altering normal nerve function. Tumors are either benign or malignant. Malignant tumors are treated with the help of Experienced Oncologists.
- Tumors are also challenging some common pediatric tumors such as craniopharyngioma, medulloblastoma, or astrocytoma. Our multidisciplinary team is then called for the procedure of surgical removal of such tumors.
- Tethered Cord – The tethering of the spinal cord is removed in this microscope surgery which allows normal growth of the spinal cord restoring the function of the limbs.
Neurosurgeons are surgeons who diagnose and treat conditions related to the brain, spine and other parts of your nervous system. Neurosurgeons are trained and certified in the use of surgical treatments, whereas neurologists focus on other forms of treatment.
- Craniotomy for brain stroke or injury to the brain
- Lumbar Puncture
- Neuro-oncology (brain tumors)
- Spinal neurosurgery.
- Functional and epilepsy neurosurgery.
- General neurosurgery.
- Trigeminal neuralgia and nerve compression syndromes.
- Peripheral nerve injury.
The Most Common Neurosurgical Procedures
- Anterior Cervical Discectomy – Anterior cervical discectomy is a procedure in which a disc is removed from the front of the word “discectomy” which refers to the removal of a disc.
- Chiari Decompression
- Epilepsy Surgery
Following problems fall in that category of neurological disorders:
- Brain tumors
- Pituitary tumors
- Peripheral nerve tumors
- Parkinson’s disease
