1. Neuro oncology

Neuro‐oncology is a subspecialty that is concerned with the treatment of both primary and metastatic brain tumors, spinal cord disorders related to cancer and treatment affecting the nervous system, as well as cancer treatment‐related complications that pertain to the central and peripheral nervous system.

Many of which are (or eventually) very dangerous and life-threatening (astrocytoma, glioma, glioblastoma multiforme,

ependymoma, pontine glioma, and brain stem tumors are among the many examples of these). The team of neurosurgeon, neurologist, radiation oncologist work to care patients, to achieve higher cure rates and longer survival. Here are the specialities under Neuro Oncology:

 

  • 1. Glioma Low-grade ,high grade
  • 2. Glioblastoma
  • 3. Meningioma
  • 4. Pituitary Tumours
  • 5. Intraventricular Tumour
  • 6. PNET,DNET
  • 7. Paediatric neuro oncology
  • 8. Medullo Blastoma
  • 9. Ependymoma
  • 10. Pineocytoma/ pineoblastoma
  • 11. Skull Based Tumours
  • 12. CP Angle Tumour
  • 13. Acoustic Schwannoma

2. Spine Surgery

For patients with focal spinal degeneration, surgery is an intimidating prospect. Significant pain and blood loss, as well as hospitalization for three to four days, are typical. Yet forgoing surgery can mean living with pain and possibly disability.
At Continental Hospital, Dr. Rajasekhar Reddy performs minimally invasive spinal surgery, which generally entails less pain and blood loss, a shorter hospital stay, and outcomes comparable to open surgery.

“Minimally invasive spinal procedures allow us to do very large surgeries a little less disruptively,” says Dr. Rajasekhar Reddy, Consultant in Neurosurgery at Continental Hospital, Hyderabad.

The integrative approach includes state-of-the-art evaluation and treatment of disorders of the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine.

 

The common Spine surgeries performed are as follows:

  • 1. Disc Surgery
  • – Endoscopic Discectomy
  • – Microscopic Discectomy
  • 2. Spinal Stabilization Surgeries
  • 3. Surgery of Spondylolisthesis
  • 4. Surgery for Spinal Tumour
  • 5. Surgery For Congenital Malformations of Spine
  • – Excision Of Meningocele
  • – Detethering Of Spinal Cord
  • – Foramen Magnum Decompression
  • 6. Surgery for Degenerative disease of spine
  • – De compressive Laminectomy
  • – Stabilisation
  • 7. Surgery for Spinal Trauma – eg. Fixation of Spine with rod sand screws
  • 8. Cervical Spine Surgery
  • – Discectomy
  • – Artificial Disease
  • – Cervical spine fixation

 

3. Neuro Trauma

Neurotrauma involves the neurological consequences of external forces to the brain, spinal cord, or body. Typically, neurotrauma is associated with car accidents, falls, contact sports, and assault. 

Diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation require a diverse team of knowledgeable experts to deliver excellence in clinical care. To do so, translational research forms the foundation that provides knowledge to advance our understanding and treatment of neuro trauma and thereby empowers clinical providers to deliver the most advanced and effective clinical interventions and treatments. To accomplish translational research, academic scientists and clinicians work collaboratively to generate new knowledge that will ultimately improve patient care.

Common surgeries performed in head injuries are:

 

  • 1. Removal of Extradural Haematoma (EDH)
  • 2. Removal of Sub Dural Haematoma (SDH)
  • 3. Removal of Contusions of the brain
  • 4. Removal of Intracranial Bleeds
  • 5. Repair of the skull Bones
  • – Aligning the depressed fractures
  • – Cranioplasty
  • – Excision Of Meningocele
  • -6. Management of Severe Head Injury in intensive care
  • 7. Neuro Rehabilitation
  • 6. Surgery for Degenerative disease of spine

4. Congenital Malformations of the Brain

Congenital brain malformations are a group of brain defects or disorders that develop in the womb and are present at birth.
The fetal brain begins to develop shortly after conception and continues to grow throughout pregnancy. Billions of neurons, or nerve cells, undergo a critical development process in which they form brain regions. If anything interrupts this process, particularly during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, brain malformations can result. Brain malformations may also develop if the skull doesn’t form properly.

While the cause is not always known, congenital brain malformations may result from inherited genetic defects, spontaneous mutations within the embryo’s genes, or damage to the fetus caused by the mother’s exposure to toxins, infection, trauma or drug use.
The symptoms and prognosis for congenital brain malformations vary, depending on their type and severity. Some brain malformations are diagnosed at birth, while others may go undetected until adolescence or adulthood.
