The Neurosurgeons at Artemis use their vast experience in Neurosurgery to help diagnose and treat disorders of the nervous system affecting the whole body, the spine, brain, hands, legs, arms and face. The Neurosurgery department offers some of the most advanced surgical treatments along with a variety of non-surgical approaches to restore his patient's health and relieve their pain. Neurosurgeons at Artemis perform minimally invasive surgeries of the spine and skull base.

Our Neurosurgeons are involved in the treatment of:
Brain tumors, both benign and malignant
Awake craniotomy if the tumor is located in an eloquent area of the brain.
Traumatic head injuries: subdural, epidural, intracerebral hematomas, brain contusion, depressed fracture.
Complex vascular diseases like Aneurysm, Arterio-venous malformation (AVM)
Insertion of ventricular shunts for normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) or obstructive hydrocephalus or endoscopic third ventriculostomy, wherever applicable
Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion with instrumentation - The cervical disc and/or spur are removed during this operation. After removal of the disc it is fused with instrumentation.
Insertion of artificial discs for cervical disc herniation and/or degeneration
Treatment of Posterior Decompression of the cervical vertebrae
Posterior Fusion of the cervical vertebrae
Discectomy - A portion of the disc is removed from the spine to release the pressure on the nerve.
Kyphoplasty/Vertebroplasty for fracture - This is a minimally invasive treatment in which orthopaedic balloons are used to gently elevate the fractured vertebrae in an attempt to return it to the correct position.
Microdiscectomy (minimally invasive spine procedure) - This is an operation on the lumbar spine that is performed using a very small incision and removes only the portion of the ruptured disc that is pinching the spinal nerve causing pain.The surgery is performed under operating microscope.
Decompressive Laminectomy with or without fusion and/or instrumentation - This surgery is done to treat spinal stenosis and relieve pressure on the spinal cord or spinal nerves. Laminectomy removes bone and/or thickened tissue that is narrowing the spinal canal and squeezing the spinal cord and nerves. Sometime along with it foraminotomy is performed to relieve the pressure on exiting nerve root. This procedure is done by surgically cutting into the back.
Posterior and Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion - In this procedure, the surgeon joins (fuses) two lumbar vertebrae. This helps stabilize the vertebrae in this part of the spine.
Spinal Cord Stimulator - This a treatment used for chronic pain. A small stimulator sends signals to your spinal cord to keep the pain messages from being sent to your brain.
Carpal Tunnel Release - Carpal tunnel release is surgery to treat carpal tunnel syndrome, which is pain and weakness in the hand caused by pressure on the median nerve at the wrist.
Ulnar Nerve Transposition - Ulnar Nerve Transposition moves the affected nerve to relieve pain and pressure. A new tunnel is created for the nerve during this procedure.
Peripheral nerve trauma surgery - With the help of nerve stimulator the pathological area is found out and treated accordingly sometimes with nerve grafting. The finest suture material which is even thinner than a hair is used.
Perpheral nerve sheath tumor - Removal of tumor from a peripheral nerve is sometimes challenging. Goal is total removal of the tumor without altering the normal function of the nerve. Tumors can be benign or malignant. Malignant tumor is managed with the helped of Experienced Oncologists.
Tumors – Common pediatric tumor like medulloblastoma, craniopharyngioma or Astrocytoma are always challenging. Surgical removal is followed by treatment by a multidisciplinary team.
Tethered Cord - In this surgery under microscope the tethering of the spinal cord is removed allowing normal growth of the spinal cord restoring function of the limbs.
