Pediatric Neurosurgery in India
Pediatric Neurosurgery in India is one of the recent advancement in medical healthcare industry in India. Pediatric Neurosurgery is a sub-specialty of Neurosurgery and requires additional fellowship training after residency to specialize in the care of infants and children. The specialty focuses on the particular problems seen, and sometimes unique to, the pediatric age group. As such, our practice is exclusively dedicated to the care of children with neurosurgical disorders and incorporates a team approach involving many other pediatric specialists including pediatric anesthesia, neuro-radiology, neuro-oncology, plastic surgery, and neurology. Many hospitals in metros like Mumbai, Delhi Chennai and Bangalore in India are providing international quality healthcare services to international patients who are wishing to have their pediatric neurosurgery in India.

Neurosurgery is the surgical discipline focused on treating those central, peripheral nervous system and spinal column diseases amenable to surgical intervention. The preoperative evaluation for brain and spinal cord tumors involves MRI and interventional neuro radiology. For MRI UVa has an anesthesiology team dedicated to pediatric cases, and employs MR spectroscopy and functional MRI to provide precise pre-op mapping. Dedicated neuro radiologists can provide preoperative tumor embolization when necessary to reduce bleeding during surgery – an important precaution for surgery in infants. Intra operative technology includes the following: Frameless stereotaxy – allows more precise, and less invasive, incisions and craniotomies, Ultrasound – provides real-time information on tumor location, Brain mapping – enables placement of subdural grids and mapping of the brain’s language and motor areas for treatment of tumors in eloquent locations, Awake craniotomy – allows continuous neurological testing to ensure that no new deficits are incurred during the tumor resection, Neuro-physiological monitoring – monitors changes in brain stem, spinal cord and nerve ending signals to alert the surgeon of potential danger before permanent injury can occur and Instrumented spinal fusion – enables spinal surgeons to perform spinal fusions unique to children, where future spinal growth must be accounted for. In UVa’s pediatric intensive care unit children receive postoperative physiological monitoring, pain control and neurological evaluation. In addition, a neurosurgical resident is in-house around the clock and a nurse practitioner is available throughout the entire process, from pre- to post-op.
