With the introduction of advanced technology in the field of medical sciences, surgery have become a lot easier and less complicated. The risk of surgery gets significantly lowered and the recovery period from surgery is greatly reduced. One approach that transforms the way the surgery is done, in almost every therapeutic area, is minimally invasive surgery. Now and then, a refined version of minimally invasive surgery gets developed for improving the outcome of the surgery. To know about the best available treatment, patient should take consultation from best neurologist in Gurgaon
Following are some of the advanced approaches for minimally-invasive surgery in neurology:
Expanded endoscopic endonasal approaches
Expanded endoscopic endonasal is an innovative surgical procedure. Endoscopic endonasal approaches are used for removing tumor and lesion from the brain through the nose and sinus.
Surgeons reach to the brain by removing back half of the nasal septum and front bone of sphenoid sinus by using a specially designed endoscope. This endoscope provides light and lens for viewing the internal environment.
In this technique, a highly crafted instrument is also used with an endoscope for tumor removal and dissection. Through EEE, surgical procedure is completed with minimum complication. Recovery time of this process is short as compared to open skull surgery.
Minimally invasive spine surgery
Minimally invasive spine surgery is also known as less invasive spine surgery and it is an advanced technique of traditional open spine surgery. It is used for the treatment of spine disorder by making a small incision.
In this procedure, the surgeon makes an incision and remove muscles to see the spine. After pulling muscles through flipping, the surgeon easily removes damaged, injured bone and intervertebral disk from the spine.
Screw, cages and bone graft material are placed for stabilization of bone. The surgeon performs this procedure with special instruments. Minimal invasive spine surgery causes less pain and minimum complications.
Minimally invasive endovascular surgery
Minimally invasive endovascular is a surgical process which is used to treat vascular disease such as an aneurysm.
In this technique, the surgeon makes a small incision near each hip by using X-ray. Then surgeon inserted a small tube are known as a catheter in blood vessels through the incision. When the catheter takes a proper position in the thoracic aneurysm, the surgeon releases a stent-graft in blood vessels.
A stent graft is expending in preset size by connecting to blood vessels. After this procedure catheter is removed from aneurysm and stent-graft is left in the thoracic cavity for completely excluding the aneurysm from normal blood flow. A similar procedure can be adopted for treating a cerebral aneurysm, stroke, arteriovenous malformations, and meningioma.
Endoscopically assisted micro-surgery
Endoscopic-assisted microsurgery is used to treat trigeminal neuralgia and facial pain which causes severe pain attack. Endoscopic-assisted microsurgery is done by making a small incision behind the ear. The surgeon uses a special instrument, neuro navigations, to enter in the brain stem.
Neuro navigation is used to move the trigeminal nerve that compresses the facial nerve. This technique is also used for separating the blood vessels.
Noninvasive stereotactic radiosurgery
Noninvasive stereotactic radiosurgery is used to treat a tumor in the brain, neck, lungs, liver, and spine.
This surgery is done by a focused radiation beam. Noninvasive stereotactic radiosurgery is performed without making an incision. In this procedure, the surgeon uses 3D images to insert a high dose of radiation beam on the affected area.
The radiation work by damaging DNA of the target cell which causes the tumor to shrink. This technique causes minimum damage to healthy tissue of the brain. Noninvasive stereotactic radiosurgery of brain and spine is done in a single session.
Expert in micro craniotomy eyebrows incision
Micro craniotomy eyebrows incision is a technique to remove tumors from the brain. In this technique, the surgeon will make a small incision within the eyebrow to remove the tumor which located in front of the brain and around the pituitary gland.
This technique causes minimum pain and leaves a small scar around eyebrows. This procedure does not cause serious complications and provides a fast recovery process.
