Neurosurgery

The Sita Bhateja Speciality Hospital Neurosurgical programme has been consistently delivering extraordinary results since its inception eight years ago. Using cutting-edge technology such as neuro-navigation to perform procedures of great complexity, neurosurgeons routinely excise tumours in the most challenging locations. From transnasal endoscopic pituitary surgery to awake craniotomies the Neurosurgical team routinely brings hope to patients who couldn’t ordinarily afford premium healthcare. Indeed, they make the seemingly impossible dream of affordable excellence come true every singe day.

Some of the more complex procedures performed by the Neurosurgical department are

  • Awake Craniotomy
  • Transnasal Endoscopic Pituitary Surgery
  • Carotid Endartectomy
  • Ventriculo Peritoneal Shunt Surgery
  • Surgery for Vestibular Schwannoma with facial nerve preservation
  • Cranio-Vertebral Junction Surgery

PATIENT STORY

Moumita

Spine Surgery

Moumita had a history of seizures. These had been diagnosed and she was put on medication.

Then the big day in her life arrived – she got married. When she realised that her medication would not let her conceive, she stopped it. Naturally, the seizures returned.

It was in this state of concern for herself and her yet unborn children that she came to our hospital.

An MRI was carried out and doctors found what is known as a ‘cavernoma’ on the right side of her brain, in the frontal lobe. A cavernoma is what is called a vascular malformation and comprises a ball of abnormal, thin-walled veins which spontaneously bleed. As the blood builds up around the cavernoma, iron deposits known as ‘hemosiderin’ do too and causes irritation to the brain.

This is a developmental abnormality and the only way in which one could possibly cut down on anti-seizure medication in this situation is surgery.

Now cavernomas can be extremely small making them notoriously tough to find during the course of surgery. So, the hospital elected to use the assistance of advanced technology called ‘neuro navigation’. Neuro navigation uses sophisticated equipment and techniques to literally ‘navigate’ within the brain. With it, it is possible to pinpoint the exact location of a tumour on a 3-dimensional plane in the brain. This minimises the need for a surgeon to ‘guess’ where the tumour is when cutting through the brain. Thus, the incisions can be made with absolute precision in terms of both location and size.

In this case, the incision made, in order to reach Moumita’s tumour was just 3 cms. For a 2.5 cm mass! In barely two hours, surgeons excised the tumour along with the abnormal brain matter surrounding it and Moumita was back in the ward.

By the evening she was walking and she was discharged in just 48 hours – remarkable considering she had just undergone brain surgery. The only mark that she bore which indicated she had just been through such a complex procedure – was the loss of a small strip of her lovely hair.

Three months later, Moumita was expecting her first child

Apart from our crack team of surgeons and cutting-edge technology, there was one more ingredient that allowed us to make Moumita’s dream of having children possible – the generosity of many donors. You see, as a person of limited means, Moumita would probably have spent the rest of her life on medication. But here at Sita Bhateja Speciality Hospital, our charitable wing was able to offer her a second lease on life and it is only made possible through the trust that many people repose in us.
