MBBS, MS (General Surgery), M Ch (Neurosurgery)

An eminently qualified consultant neurosurgeon and spine surgeon and one of the leading members of Sita Bhateja Speciality Hospital’s team, Dr Banu Prakash did his surgical training at PGI, Chandigarh. There, his exposure to a vast array of neurosurgical cases and techniques honed his (already formidable) skills to the highest level.

Dr Banu Prakash has a special interest in the areas of deep brain stimulation, minimally invasive surgery, 3-D endoscopy and endovascular techniques for comprehensive care. In pursuit of this he has done observerships at the Barrow Neurosurgical Institute in Phoenix, Arizona (in skull base, vascular, functional DBS, VNS and Spine-X LIF) and at City of Hope, Los Angeles where cutting-edge research is being done in the fields of robotic surgery and nano medicine for the treatment of brain tumours.

Dr Prakash takes an active interest in academia and has taught and mentored students at various institutes such as Narayana Hrudayalaya and BMC Clinical-Surgical Skills Centre in Bangalore and PGI Chandigarh. His belief in philanthropy has seen him give his time as a visiting consultant to serve the poor at ESI Hospital (Bangalore).

Dr Banu Prakash has published research papers in both national and international publications and is a member of the Neurological Society of India, North American Skull Base Society, Bangalore Neurological Society, Indian Society of Neuro Oncology and Karnataka Spine Forum.
