Spasticity

SPASTICITY We can help treat patients suffering from spasticity by implanting intrathecal baclofen pumps. Patients are considered for implantable pumps after oral baclofen has proven either ineffective or intolerable. Patients with the following conditions are considered for implantable baclofen pumps Hypoxia ,Cerebral palsy,Spinal cord injury, Traumatic brain injury.

Chronic Pain

CHRONIC PAIN Procedures performed for chronic pain include: - Spinal cord stimulation for patients experiencing failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS) and complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). - Occipital and supraorbital nerve stimulation patients with persistent headaches originating from the occipiatal or supraorbital nerves. - Intrathecal pain pump implantation for intractable chronic pain.

Movement Disorders

MOVEMENT DISORDERS Patients with movement disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease, dystonia and essential tremor, are generally treated by Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) after medical management has failed. Specific procedures performed include.

Epilepsy

EPILEPSY Functional Neurosurgery procedures on epilepsy regularly performed for the treatment include: - Vagal nerve stimulator (VNS) implants - Responsive neurostimulator (RNS) implants - Stereotactic laser ablation with gama knife

Functional Neurosurgery

FUNCTIONAL NEUROSURGERY Functional Neurosurgery treats patients with treatment resistant neurological disorders, such as epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, chronic pain and spasticity. In our clinic, deep brain stimulation (DBS) for parkinson ,vagal nerve stimulator (VNS) for epilepsy, Intrathecal pain pump implantation for intractable chronic pain and implantable baclofen pumps for spasticity are mostly used.

Migraine

MIGRAINE SURGERYA brain tumor is a mass or growth of abnormal cells in your brain. Many different types of brain tumors exist. Some brain tumors are noncancerous (benign), and some brain tumors are cancerous (malignant). Brain tumors can begin in your brain (primary brain tumors), or cancer can begin in other parts of your body and spread to your brain (secondary, or metastatic, brain tumors). How quickly a brain tumor grows can vary greatly. The growth rate as well as location of a brain tumor determines how it will affect the function of your nervous system.
