Neuro Endoscopy Surgery
TThe Neuro-Endoscopy Unit at BLK Hospital is equipped with the latest equipment and technology which helps the doctors in providing the best treatment to their patients. The aim is to give the best treatment by avoiding major surgeries. Since the hospital is a neurological centre for minimally invasive surgery this is one of the important pillars of our minimally invasive program. We conduct minimal invasion for following ailments:
Hydrocephalous: At the Neuro-endoscopy unit also, we focus on treating young children who are suffering from hydrocephalous by neuro-endoscopy. The procedure involved opening a path within the brain without the need for a shunt or foreign body.
Pituitary Tumor: The neuro-endoscopy procedure is also recommended for pituitary tumours wherein our experts go in for endonasal endoscopy decompression. In this procedure, the endos-cope is inserted through the nose to extract the tumour.
CSF Rhinorrhea: It is a condition where the brain water leaks through the nose due to various rea-sons and needs immediate attention. At BLK, we are fully-equipped to conduct endoscopy with minimal discomfort to the patient.
What is Neuro-endoscopy?
Neuro-endoscopy is a complex yet a safe procedure where no incision is made on the skull. The neuro-endoscopy is generally conducted to extract a tumour in the brain. The procedure is conducted through mouth or nose by inserting an endoscope.
Why should one opt for Neuro-endoscopy?
The brain is the most complex structure of the human body and any neglect of the same can result in dire consequences. Earlier, it was a difficult task to heal any disorder related to the brain but with technological advancement, doctors can now easily heal a person without hampering any other areas of the brain.
