(Surgery performed using an operating microscope)
Neurosurgery often involves reaching into complex areas of the brain, the skull base, or the spinal cord. The objective of Neurosurgery is to treat the disease while keeping the delicate functions of the brain intact, thereby achieving good surgical outcome. This can be done by combining the latest microscopic surgical techniques with the most advanced and up-to-date technical resources. This allows us to reach the surgical target safely while keeping the risk at a minimum.
Micro neurosurgery is a term used to refer to the operating microscope and specific micro-instruments which are deployed to perform a surgery for treating the diseases of brain, spine, and spinal cord. Neurosurgeons are nowadays very adept in Microsurgery and perform several complex delicate operations using the Microscope.
The centers for Neurosurgery at Apollo Hospitals offer the best in micro neurosurgery. Almost all procedures in brain and spine are done under the magnification provided by the microscope. With the use of a microscope, there is less damage to a normal brain or spinal cord surrounding the area of abnormality. Patients have a smooth recovery and lower incidence of surgery induced deficits. The hospital stay is reduced and thus the cost of treatment is lower.
