The development and planning of the Neurosurgical unit in the hospital has been my responsibility. We have been able to provide comprehensive Neurosurgical facilities to our patients; a wide range of cranial and spinal neurosurgical operations and work has been undertaken in the hospital by myself. This includes intracranial aneurysms, AVMs, Transnasal pituitary surgery, trans-labyrinthine approach to Acoustic neurinomas, skull base work, supra and infra-tentorial tumours to trauma. In addition to spinal work consisting of both anterior and posterior approaches to the cervical spine for trauma, tumours and AV malformations, the microscopic approach to cervical and lumbar disc disease is routinely being performed. The neurological microscopic handling of spinal disc disease with its obvious advantages even in the Indian setting has gained a good reputation in my unit.
Over the last seven years, I have not only developed my interest in minimally invasive neurosurgery of the brain and spinal cord but also introduced newer aspects of treatment including the stereotactic CT guided biopsies, MRI guided biopsies, Radiosurgery and Stereotactic Radiotherapy.
