Neurosurgery is the medical speciality that deals with diagnosing and treating patients with injuries or diseases/disorders of the brain, spinal cord, spinal column, and peripheral nerves throughout the body. Adult and paediatric patients are both treated with neurosurgery. Depending on the type of damage or disease in the patient, a neurological surgeon may provide surgical or non-surgical treatment. In this area of expertise, patients with injuries or conditions affecting the brain, spinal cord, and spinal column are treated by surgical means. Although it is close to neurological studies, the main difference is that neurosurgery takes a surgical approach in cases where neurological practice shows limitations.
Manipal Hospital's pool of highly-trained and experienced neurosurgeons diagnose and treat various conditions related to the brain and spine by conducting surgeries using state-of-the-art technology and medical concepts.

This type of procedure is performed primarily to operate on cysts, aneurysms, tumors (cancerous and non-cancerous) and other abnormalities present on the skull base, upper vertebrae or underside of the brain. Typically, skull base & spine surgery is performed using minimally invasive methods, using an endoscope through the mouth, nose or by creating…
A stroke happens when the blood supply to a portion of the brain is cut off or if a blood vessel inside the brain breaks. Parts of the brain are injured or die in either circumstance, which results in long-term brain damage, disability, or even fatality.
Craniotomies are a type of brain surgery. A portion of the skull is removed to gain access to the brain. During surgery, bone is replaced. Aneurysms and tumours are commonly treated with craniotomies.
Surgical decompression is performed to widen the channel when the spinal canal is narrow. This procedure can relieve some symptoms, such as myelopathy of the cervical and thoracic spine and radiculopathy of the spinal canal. A cervical fusion can be performed at any level of the vertebral column, and it may affect a single level of the spine or, in…
In the past, spinal surgery was associated with large incisions, lengthy recovery periods, and prolonged rehabilitation. The procedure has been enhanced by surgical advances such as the microdiscectomy procedure.
Laminectomy surgery is usually performed to create space in the spine due to bone spurs and tissues that form from arthritis. As part of this procedure, removing a small piece of the small bones in the spine is usually necessary. As part of a laminectomy, the spinal canal is lengthened to relieve pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. It is common…
This is a procedure performed to correct a congenital disorder known as AVM, where there is a formation of tangled arteries and veins which can lead to seizures, internal bleeding and neurological symptoms. It is possible to have an AVM without any adverse effects, but it is considered to be better to remove the risk through surgery. AVM's can form…

You will probably feel very tired for several weeks after surgery. You may also have headaches or problems concentrating. It can take 4 to 8 weeks to recover from surgery. Your cuts (incisions) may be sore for about 5 days after surgery.
If you have a herniated disc in the lumbar region of the spinal cord, your neurosurgeon will recommend microdiscectomy surgery.
To diagnose the medical condition of your back, a neurosurgeon will administer a diagnostic test. Various tests may be performed, including CT scans and x-rays.
After lumbar microdiscectomy surgery, you will experience relief from all those symptoms you previously faced.
In the immediate aftermath of surgery, discomfort may be around the wound, but this can usually be managed with simple pain medications. Air and blood products can also irritate the brain lining, resulting in headaches. Due to the absence of pain nerves in the skull and brain, surgery on the head is generally not painful.
Most patients remain in the hospital for three to five days after cranial surgery. Patients might need some time in rehabilitative care before returning home.
Neurosurgeries are always complex and daunting, that is why Manipal Hospitals and its team of doctors' goal is to ensure patients are on the path to a quick recovery through the least invasive, most appropriate, and advanced treatment available.
