When it comes to neurosurgical care, Apollo Adlux Hospital is the place to be. Our Department of Neurosurgery offers the highest level of care and expertise for the treatment of brain and spine conditions and trauma. We are concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of patients with injuries or disorders of the brain, spinal cord, column, and peripheral nerves within all parts of the body. Our team is equipped with the latest technology and expertise to handle any kind of neurosurgical emergency, from brain and spine surgery to road trauma accidents and mass casualties. Our endoscopic spine and minimally invasive surgeries make it easier and faster to heal and cure. Our full-fledged Neuro ICU is ready to provide the best possible care to patients in need of urgent neurosurgical attention, and our team of neurosurgeons are always here to provide the best care and comfort for all ages. To ensure that our patients receive the best care possible promptly, we offer 24/7 brain and spine trauma care.

A neurosurgeon addresses problems of the nervous system, brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles by combining surgical and non-surgical approaches.
In the case of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), for instance, our neurosurgeons will take images of your brain, review them, and possibly perform an angiogram (imaging-based blood flow measurement) to determine which of your brain's arteries are narrowed or blocked and may require surgical intervention. They may recommend angioplasty with a stent (insertion of a mesh tube to maintain the vein enlarged) or bypass surgery to graft a new vein to provide flow around a blocked artery. Typically, you would be able to leave the hospital within two days.
Pituitary tumours are almost always benign, grow slowly, and do not metastasize; the pituitary is a hormone-producing gland located beneath the brain that is supplied by nerves from the brain, but is not composed of nervous tissue like the brain. Pituitary tumours are an area of expertise for the neurosurgeons at the Kenneth R. Peak Center for Brain and Pituitary Tumor Treatment and Research.
This type of surgery was formerly extremely intrusive and dangerous, but now, our neurosurgeons can typically remove the tumour in a few hours without making an incision; you may even go home the next day. If the tumour is enormous or cannot be accessible through the nose, the pituitary can be accessed through a small hole in the skull using natural fissures (open spaces between structures) in the brain.
The neurosurgeons at the Kenneth R. Peak Center are well-versed in the diagnosis and treatment of brain tumours. Our team would surgically remove as much of the tumour as possible and then use advanced radiotherapy and chemotherapy (including new protocols being tested in clinical trials) to eliminate the remaining tumour.
