The Neurosurgery Department provides a comprehensive inpatient and outpatient neurosurgical service,
treating the full range of intracranial, spinal and peripheral nerve disorders.
We are committed to providing excellence in neurosurgical care through quality management,
education and training of health care professionals in clinical and laboratory research.
The Department has developed sub-specialty interests in cerebrovascular surgery, spine surgery,
skull base surgery, pituitary surgery, and neuro trauma.
It also has a dedicated operation theatre and intensive care unit (ICU) managed by intensivists and residents.
Our neurosurgical team comprising of highly trained neurosurgeons, neurologists,
neuro-rehabilitation team and nurses work together to provide our patient with professional support and assist them in their recovery process.
There are routine outdoor and indoor neurosurgery services and also an emergency ward and a surgical
postoperative intensive care facility for critically ill patients.
We promote global teamwork through constant neurosciences institutions and globally recognized doctors.
In recent years emphasis has been placed on super-specialization and a multidisciplinary approach.
This has resulted in several areas of expertise.
- Common Neurological procedures include:
- Brain tumors like meningioma, glioma, pituitary adenoma, schwannoma etc.
- Brain vascular malformations and bleed: AVM, aneurysms, hypertensive bleed
- Trauma : Extradural hematoma, subdural hematoma, contusions, skull base fractures.
- Infection: Brain abscess.
- Pain management: Trigeminal neuralgia.
- Epilepsy surgery
- Spinal cord tumors meningioma, astrocytoma and ependymoma.
- Spinal trauma: fracture and dislocations.
- Spinal vascular malformation: AVM, dural AV fistula.
- Spinal degenerative disease: Disc prolapse, spinal canal stenosis and listhesis.
- Spinal infection: TB spine.
MGM New Bombay Hospital Vashi has been handling neurosurgical
emergencies and critical conditions meticulously and with utmost care.
We have successfully diagnosed and treated some of the rarest and most challenging conditions.
We have been successful in bringing about miracles due to our highly trained specialized neurosurgeons
backed by the latest modern medical technology. We also work in conjunction with the departments of ENT,
Interventional Radiology, Intensive care, Plastic Surgery, Anesthesia and Neurology to provide comprehensive care
for almost all cranial and spinal disorders. Our success stories speak volumes of our achievements.
Technology & Infrastructure
A computerized data storage and retrieval system greatly facilitates dynamic patient care.
The operating rooms are modern, well-staffed, have state-of-the-art equipment,
and work at a pace that is conducive to patient healing.Additionally, the neurosurgery department is supported by
- 64 slice CT scan (24/7 availability).
- 3 Tesla MRI (latest of its kind).
- Endoscope system.
- State-of-the-art Neuro Drills.
Not all head injuries are serious.A simple bang to the head at home may not be actually head injury. Following are the signs which indicate head injury.
- Loss of consciousness lasting for few seconds to hour.
- Amnesia of the event.
- Bleeding from ear, nose and throat.
- Weakness of any part of the body or facial deviation.
- Double vision or blurring of vision.
Any of the above mentioned complaints necessitates a visit to Emergency department for evaluation and observation.
Most common mistake we all do is, give the patient something to eat or drink; which is wrong.
If the patient has any of the complain mentioned in the above question, consult emergency department immediately.
Head injury can cause bleeding and fracture. Bleeding can occur outside the brain like Extradural hematoma,
subdural hematoma or it can happen inside the brain like contusions.
Head injuries are categorized as mild, moderate and severe. Mild and moderate head injury can be treated with medications and observation.
Severe head injury most of the time require surgery depending on the location of injury. Outcome of the patient depends on the grade of injury and location of injury.
If the C.T. Scan shows EDH (Extradural Hematoma) or SDH (Subdural hematoma) or a large intracranial bleed.
Immediate surgery to remove the clot and reduce the swelling (decompression) can save a life.
Mild and moderate head injury patients do well with treatment and recover almost completely. Patients with severe
head injury will have form of deficit like difficulty in talking or understanding, weakness of any limbs,
change in personality, constant headache etc; but with good neurorehabilative techniques they can be made self dependent.
Below are some major symptoms:
- Intense, prolonged or continuous headache over days or months.
- Vomiting, squinting of eyes asymmetry of face.
- Paralysis or weakness of one side of the body (Hemiparesis).
- Double vision or Diplopia.
- Fits, seizures or convulsions.
brain tumor is uncontrolled growth of brain tissue leading to damage of surrounding normal brain.
No it is not always poor prognosis.
Some tumors can be completely cured. But some tumors are bad and can only be controlled not cured.
No it is not. Depending on the grade of tumor you will be subjected to radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
No, not all brain tumors require surgery.Some can be managed with medication and unfortunately some may be out the scope of surgery.
- Hemorrhagic stroke – Seen in 30-60% of hospital admissions due to stroke.
High blood pressure (BP) increases the risk of bleed in the brain in stroke patients.
- Head Injury.
- Rupture of Aneurysm – An aneurysm is a defect in the wall of the artery.
As age advances the pressure of the flow blood causes thinning of this wall with an out pouching of the vessel (aneurysm).
When the aneurysm ruptures it leads to Brain Hemorrhage..
- AVM (Arterio-Venous Malformation) – There is an abnormal connection between the arteries and veins. This is usually a defect from birth. Due to this abnormal connection, the pressure in
the arteries is directly transmitted to the veins leading to bleed over a period of time. When the AVM occurs in the brain blood vessels, it leads to brain Hemorrhage.
- Brain tumor bleed – Some brain tumors are very vascular and may at times spontaneously bleed.
- Disorders of Bleeding and Clotting of Blood – Can cause bleeding anywhere in the body including brain.
