Department of Neurosurgery
VishwaRaj Hospital’s Centre for Neurosciences provides comprehensive evaluation and therapeutic services to a wide range of neurological conditions like Neurotrauma, Stroke, Brain Haemorrhage, Backache, Spinal Disorders, Neuro-Oncology, Epilepsy, and other Neurological ailments. Under our Neuro Critical Care Program, we manage patients with life threatening neurological and neurosurgical critical illnesses.
Since VishwaRaj Hospital is located on the highway, we tend to receive a lot of road traffic accident cases with involvement of the brain and the nervous system. Keeping this in mind, we have ensured a robust Neurosciences department at VishwaRaj Hospital. This department, with its two branches, Neurosurgery and Neurology are highly competent to diagnose, operate, treat, and care for all patients requiring urgent and excellent care, making VishwaRaj Hospital as one of the best Neurosurgery Hospital in Pune. Cerebral (brain) stroke patients are immediately treated here (within the “Golden hour” time period) ensuring a good prognosis and rapid postoperative recovery. At Vishwaraj Hospital, a team of highly qualified doctors, including neurosurgeons, neurologists, and oncologists, work together to provide a comprehensive treatment plan for patients with brain tumors. The hospital is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and equipment for accurate diagnosis and effective treatment of brain tumors.
Treatment and Services
There are various disorders of brain and spine that need urgent treatment or care. Some of the common disorders are:
– A brain tumor is a mass of abnormal cells in your brain. Brain tumors can be of many types. Some of these tumors are noncancerous (benign), and some are cancerous (malignant). A brain tumor can begin in your brain (primary brain tumors), or cancer from other parts of the body can spread to your brain (called secondary brain tumors).
Spine is animportant part of the central nervous system of the body. Itcan have numerous disorders like Degenerative Intervertebral disc, Ligament Strain, Herniated disc, Spinal Stenosis and Bone spurs, Scoliosis or Spinal instability, Spinal infections, or Spinal tumors.
It is a serious medical condition in which cerebral arteries are blocked or damaged causing injury to the brain. A stroke can be anticipated in a patient by symptoms like blurred vision, difficulty in speaking, confusion, severe headache, numbness, etc. A stroke needs urgent care by expert neurologists at Stroke hospital in order to prevent serious consequences.
Headache is one of the most common types of health problem, related to a neurological disorder. Due to current lifestyle, stress has become a major cause of headache. There are various kinds of headaches like Tension headaches, Migraines, and Cluster headaches. If you experience a headache very rarely, than it is okay but if you experience a headache repeatedly, then you should visit a doctor at the earliest in a Neurology Hospital. Recurring headaches can indicate a serious underlying condition.
It is a disorder of the nervous system that affects the movement of the body. Parkinson’s Disease leads to constipation, impaired sense of smell, tremors, speech changes, muscle stiffness, etc. Your doctor may diagnose Parkinson’s Disease with the help of particular examination and tests.. Once diagnosed, it is often treated or managed by medications.
It is a sudden disturbance in the electrical activities of the brain that results in abnormal body part movements and loss of consciousness. The seizures can occur just once or may appear repeatedly.. Repeated incidence or seizures is called epilepsy. It is important to see a doctor just after you experience the first seizure. Early detection and treatment can prevent loss of memory or damage in the brain. Epilepsy can occur due to a genetic disorder or because of some injury caused by stroke or trauma. It is mostly treated by medications and some dietary changes whereas in other cases surgery may be required
