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.

  • Craniotomy

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.

  • Hemispherectomy

Cerebral hemisphere (half of the brain) is removed, disconnected, or disabled through this very rare neurosurgical procedure

  • Thrombolysis

It is a treatment to improve blood flow by dissolving dangerous clots in blood vessels. It also prevents damage to tissues and organs.
