What are the neurosurgeries done at the Institute of Neurosciences?
- Stereo EEG Implantation
Stereo EEG implantation allows on the surface of the brain and deep within it for simultaneous exploration of electrical activity.
- Subdural Grid Implantation
When seizure activity cannot be located by ictal scalp recordings, Subdural grid arrays are used. It is also used when functional cortical mapping is required before surgery.
- Intraoperative EEG
It monitors the functional integrity of certain neural structures during surgery.
A craniotomy is the surgical procedure which exposes the brain by removing a part of the bone from the skull.
- Complex Temporal Epilepsy Surgery
The seizures that are uncontrolled with medication are treated through Epilepsy surgery.
Cerebral hemisphere (half of the brain) is removed, disconnected, or disabled through this very rare neurosurgical procedure
It is a treatment to improve blood flow by dissolving dangerous clots in blood vessels. It also prevents damage to tissues and organs.
