Brain and Spine Tumours
All brain tumours are not cancers. Therefore it requires a good evaluation of a patient to decide complete management. At Sri Balaji Action Medical Institute we have 1.5T MRI, 64 slice CT, PET scan, SPECT and Gamma camera. A team of Neurosurgeons, Radiologists, Radiation Oncologists, Medical Oncologists and Pathologists who decide complete management protocol on case to case basis. Benign tumours like meningioma, schwannoma, neurofibroma, pilo-astrocytoma, etc., require only complete excision of tumours for cure. Some malignancy may require Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy after surgery. These facilities are available within the campus with most advanced Radiation machines.
For rehabilitation, a separate team of Physiotherapists is available. Behavioural therapy, psychological assessment and psychiatric treatments are provided in-house and on OPD basis by Clinical Psychologists and Psychiatrists.
Aneurysmal bleeding in brain has high mortality and morbidity. It requires highly skilled operating hands and sharp clinical acumen of a Neurosurgeon to treat aneurysm ruptures. If treated properly such patients become as normal as before. At Sri Balaji Action Medical Institute, we have all modern facilities for clipping and coiling of ruptured/un-ruptured aneurysms.
It is a very common problem nowadays. Earlier it only used to be a common problem of people in the age group of 50s and older, but it is more common in young population now. Lifestyle changes have been attributed amongst other known risk factors. This age group is economically most productive. So not going to work is a severe economic loss to individuals and society as a whole. In the long run patients suffer from depression, emotional and other psychological problems.
Backaches are being treated rather partially by Family Physicians, Physicians, General Surgeons, Orthopaedicians, Neurologists, Anaesthetists, Pain Clinic Physicians, Physiotherapists, Homeopathic, Ayurvedic, Unani Physicians and others. In all modalities, there is some improvement initially which is a happy phase for the patient. If complete bio-physics of the patient’s spine is not studied in conjunction with body’s physical make-up and lifestyle; he is going to deteriorate sooner or later.
Therefore such patients must visit a Neurosurgeon who operates spine. At Sri Balaji Action Medical Institute we take unanimous decisions with a supportive team approach and are well-equipped to deal with complex spinal problems.
Most of the cases actually do not require any surgery or injection therapy. If required at all, we do an Endoscopic Spine surgery which is beneficial for both back and neck. It is done by a very small incision and the patient can go home the same evening and return to their work within a week. A patient need not come back for stitches removal as none is put into the skin. Similarly, different forms of Cervical and Lumbar Spondylosis and Spine fractures require different approaches.
Late marriages and early diagnosis have increased the incidence of congenital Brain and Spinal malformations. At Sri Balaji Action Medical Institute, a team of Neurosurgeons, Neonatologists and Senior Paediatricians take all effort to diagnose precisely any such malformations. We intervene at appropriate time so that the future development remains as normal as possible. Large Head size, abnormal body weight ratio, short neck, tilted spine, disfigured head shape and seizures are few features which should be brought to immediate notice of parents and a Neurosurgeon/Neurologist before it is too late.
At Sri Balaji Action Medical Institute, we operate the baby as early as a newborn.
Refractory Limb Spasticity, Refractory Parkinsonism, Intractable Pain, Intractable Seizures may improve by electric stimulation of different areas of nervous system. We put Deep Brain Stimulators with high precision in Parkinson’s disease and OCD’s. Excellent results are seen with skilled team of Neurosurgeons and Neuro-Physiotherapists.
Peripheral Nerve Surgeries
Peripheral nerves are sometimes involved due to metabolic diseases or traumas, in this affected limb do not function properly and may have intractable neuropathic pain. Microsurgical decompression or nerve transfer surgeries help such patients and have appropriate functional outcomes.
Head and Spine Injury
Road Traffic accidents on highways and expressways are high velocity polytrauma, in which head and spine suffer the most. It is the young population who are the main sufferers. The losses of such incidents have a huge impact especially economically on family and society. Very important is the timing and critical decisions to be considered during early phase of such head and spine injuries. If intervened on time, even serious head injuries do survive! We at Sri Balaji Action Medical Institute provide a very standard approach on war footing for such an emergency.
Brain Hemorrhage and stroke
Brain Hemorrhages and other forms of Brain attack require aggressive team work of Neurosurgeons, Neurologists and Neuro-Intensivists. Large Intracerebral Bleeding requires life saving surgical evacuation.Large Infarcts (area of brain with no vascular supply) require life saving Decompressive Craniectomy.
