Neurosurgery

s late as the 19th century, when bold surgeons had attempted anything – even the repair of a beating heart, the nervous system was still considered off limits. With tremendous gains in knowledge about the molecules that run the human brain, neurosurgery has evolved as a specialized field of science in the recent years. Within the brain are 100 billion neurons that give us the ability to see, smell and move, as well as think, weep, talk and read, having a total weight of about 3 pounds in an average adult though. Furthermore, all we experience and remember – in essence, every little thing that makes us who we are – is rooted in the neocortex, the seat of the "moving" brain.

Neurosurgery at northwest general hospital has also shown tremendous growth since the start of the hospital. It provides the operative and non-operative management (i.e. prevention, diagnosis, evaluation, treatment, critical care and rehabilitation). It not only covers 24 hours emergency but also a whole lot of elective procedures are being carried out by a team of specialist neurosurgeons on daily basis. Operative management involves a wide variety of disorders affecting the brain, the spinal cord and spinal column, and the peripheral nerves. Common conditions being managed include traumatic brain injuries, brain tumors and a broad spectrum of disorders affecting the spine including spinal canal stenosis, herniated discs, tumors, fractures, and spinal deformities. Most of the time general neurosurgery is being practiced here, encompassing both the adult and pediatric population, using all the standardized instrument and gadgets. But with the existing clinical challenges and technical advances in the field of neurosurgery, the focus is more on developing high degree of surgical subspecialization at northwest general hospital. This would serve to further drive the technological advances that highlight neurosurgery today and continue to evolve will help the new generations to learn more and serve the ailing humanity in a better way.
