Department of Micro-Neurosurgery

Neurosurgery comprises of surgery of the brain, spine, spinal cord and peripheral nerves. With the advancement of operating microscopes, neurosurgeons can now perform complex brain surgeries.

Chronic conditions like Trigeminal Neuralgia which requires lifelong medication, can now be cured with Micro-Neuro surgery. Complex tumours have been eradicated without any damage to the brain or any other part. Complex tumours in elderly patients have also been treated successfully. Such outcomes are possible only with Shalby’s team of skilled & dedicated surgeons, nursing & paramedical staff, and regular trainings.
