Yashoda Hospital, department for Neuro-endoscopy Surgery, is a part of the Department of Neurosciences. Our team uses neuro-endoscopy surgery to reduce the hospital stay of our patients and help them in quicker recovery from hormonal problems. Our doctors and neurosurgeons hold years of experience in performing minimally invasive endoscopic brain surgery.
To treat complex conditions such as brain aneurysms as well as spine and brain tumours, and leak of the brain fluid through the nose, this relatively less invasive technique is performed. Our physicians and surgeons work closely together with the patient to determine the best treatment plan for the patient’s current medical condition. We strive to provide you with a patient-centric experience with maximum benefits and an easier recovery.
Neuroendoscopy is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure that allows neurosurgeons to treat most of the complex brain conditions such as a brain tumour, which are hard to treat with traditional surgery. It enables neurosurgeons to:
The major indicators that highlight the need for Neuro-endoscopy surgery involve the conditions in which the patient experiences some of these indicators simultaneously:
Other general symptoms patient might experience, in addition to the above symptoms include:
What Are The Conditions Treated Under Neuro-Endoscopy Surgery?
Some of the brain conditions that may benefit from neuro-endoscopy treatment include:
What are the Types of Diagnostic Procedures Required Before Neuro-Endoscopy Surgery?
Your doctor might ask you to take the following diagnostic tests:
What Is The Procedure Of Neuro-Endoscopy Surgery?
Neuro-endoscopy surgery is a minimally invasive brain surgery, where, unlike the traditional open surgery, few small incisions are created to perform the surgery.
Our doctors ensure that you are fit for the procedure by performing a series of tests and screening process. You might be prescribed some medicines for a week or two before the surgery to avoid any infections.
Before the operation, the patient receives general anaesthesia and will sleep through the surgical procedure.
The surgeon will make an incision at the affected site and insert a thin telescope-like instrument called an endoscope through the incision. The camera attached inside the endoscope helps the doctor to perform complex operations easily. The surgery is performed through surgical instruments or through robots assisted arms. After the surgery, sutures are closed with surgical tape.
In the case of brain tumour patient has to undertake a few therapies for treating cancer completely. These include:
What Are The Advantages Of Neuro-Endoscopy Surgery?
Neuro-endoscopy Surgery has the edge over traditional surgery process:
The surgeons perform the surgery by making small incisions through the use of cameras, small tools, and lights. By implementing the Robotic surgery technique, it gives them more close control over the surgical process, thereby resulting in fast after surgery recovery outcomes.
What Are The Precautions You Should Take After The Neuro-Endoscopy Surgery?
The crucial precautionary measures one must consider after the surgery are:
What Are The Complications Associated With Neuro-Endoscopy Surgery?
No surgery comes without risks. The risks of minimally invasive surgery include:
