The RMI Department of Neurosurgery is committed to delivering exceptional patient care and the pursuit of science to improve patient outcomes. Our highly specialized physicians, practitioners and staff are devoted to providing the highest standard of patient care for all neurosurgical conditions of the central (i.e. brain, spinal cord) and peripheral nervous systems, as well as the blood vessels supplying them.
Neurological conditions we treat:
We offer treatment for a broad spectrum of neurosurgical conditions. These include all types of:
- Primary (i.e. gliomas, glioblastomas, meningiomas) and metastatic brain, spine and spinal cord tumors.
- Pituitary tumors (adenomas)
- Spinal disorders (i.e. herniated discs, stenosis, scoliosis)
- Peripheral nerve syndromes (i.e. carpal tunnel)
- Neurovascular disease (ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke)
- Pediatric and congenital disorders (i.e. hydrocephalus, craniosynostosis, spina bifida, congenital spine deformities)
- Pain disorders (i.e. trigeminal neuralgia)
- Cerebrospinal fluid disorders (i.e. normal pressure hydrocephalus).
Intensive Care and Rehabilitation:
Moreover, patients benefit from the outstanding care provided in our Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and floors with a dedicated intensivist team in the ICU and highly trained nurses with expertise in caring for patients with neurological conditions. Patients with spinal disease, for instance, can achieve successful outcomes with not only surgery, but as the result of rehabilitation and pain management as part of a complete treatment strategy developed for each individual patient and provided for at one location.
Latest Surgical Equipment:
We offer the latest in cutting edge treatment in a state-of-the-art environment that is simply unsurpassed in terms of quality, infrastructure and level of compassionate, patient-focused care. Our neurosurgeons are highly expert, specialized and committed to multimodality management leading to better outcomes for patients and their families.
RMI has following latest technology imported devices for neurosurgeries:
1. Neurosurgical Power Drill:
The pneumatic and electric neurosurgical drills are the devices used by surgeons to treat the brain and skull injuries. Electric drills generally work on power, and the pneumatic drill system is a surgical instrument system powered hydraulically.
2. Surgical Microscope:
An operating microscope or surgical microscope is an optical microscope specifically designed to be used in a surgical setting, typically to perform microsurgery.
3. Image-intensifier C-Arm:
A C-arm is an imaging scanner intensifier. The name derives from the C-shaped arm used to connect the x-ray source and x-ray detector to one another. C-arms have radiographic capabilities, though they are used primarily for fluoroscopic intraoperative imaging during surgical, orthopedic and emergency care procedures.
