    Focus is on treatment of brain tumors b a dedicated team of neurosurgeons, radiosurgeon, neuroradiologist radiotherapist and medical oncologist who focus on diagnosis and treatment tumors such as glioma, meningiomas, pituitary adenomas and other brain tumors. The centre has facilities such as intra-operative MRI (brain suite) for MR guided surgery, LINCC radiosurgery system, endoscopic neurosurgery for minimally invasive tumor removal. Centre also has advanced diagnostic facilities such as 3T MRI, CT and PET.


    Includes team of spine surgeon, minimally invasive spine surgeon, interventional neuroradiologist, physiotherapist and pain specialist to treat the whole gamut of spinal disorders by appropriate methods. facilities include C arm for image guided surgery, advanced computerized image guidance system to prevent injury, minimally access unit to do endoscopic surgery for most disorders. Advanced imaging helps in precise diagnosis and dedicated spinal rehabilitation program helps in recovery from disabilities


    Epilepsy is a common disorder which carries important implications for the patient and their families. Most patients with epilepsy respond very well to adequate medications. In about 5% of cases the patients do not show response to treatment and have to be taken up for surgery for epilepsy The surgery for epilepsy requires an immense teamwork of dedicated epileptologists, epilepsy surgeons, neuroimaging techniques and a neurophysiologist. The neurosciences institute at Medanta has one such dedicated team which has members who have been pioneers for epilepsy surgery in the country. The centre has the back up of modern investigations like a 3T MRI, Video EEG, invasive cortical recordings and grid recording for lesion localization.. The centre will offer a comprehensive epilepsy management program which will match with some of the best centres of the world.


    Most common movement disorders are Parkinson's disease, hemifacial spasms, Blepharospasm, Dystonias, Writer's cramp, and torticollis etc. The very experienced movement disorders team at Medanta will be backed by the most advanced investigation equipment in the world which includes a Diffusion 256 slice double exposure CT scanner, a 3T MRI, SPECT, PET CT Scanner and the most advanced molecular diagnosis facility in the country. There will be facilities for the management of dystonia and dyskinesia using botulinium toxin. Deep brain stimulation has been proposed as the treatment of choice for patients with Parkinson's disease, and some dystonias and the team of doctors at Medanta is one of the pioneers in this field in India. The patients who require deep brain stimulation surgery will have an additional advantage of an intraoperative MRI as well, which can accurately detect the position of the leads of the DBS surgery. The institute has a team based approach for the therapy and rehabilitation of patients with movement disorders and neurodegenerative disorders.


    Headache is one of the commonest diseases to afflict mankind. They are also the most difficult to eradicate despite their common occurrence. At Medanta we have a single stop facility to take care of the entire spectrum of headache disorders The investigative modalities at the centre are one of the most advanced in this part of the globe and the team of headache specialists have a long experience in management of headache disorders. There will be facilities for advanced management of headaches using botulinium toxin, nerve blocks, trigger point blocks, and occipital nerve stimulation.


    A stroke occurs when blood vessels carrying oxygen and other nutrients to a specific part of the brain suddenly burst or become blocked. When blood fails to get through to the affected parts of the brain, the oxygen supply is cut off and brain cells begin to die. The Stroke programme focuses on disorders such as paralytic attacks, brain hemorrhage and treatment of disorders such as brain aneurysms, carotid stenosis. Facilities included brain rescue program to perform emergency reopening of occluded blood vessels to reverse paralysis, endovascular program to treat many disorders of brain without performing open surgery, rehabilitation and advanced diagnostic facilities such as 3T MRI and CT. A dedicated Brain Rescue team and a network of ambulances along with a time bound protocol ensure that we treat stroke like a Brain Attack (just like a Heart Attack) in a time bound fashion and use clot busting drugs as well as endovascular therapy including clot retrieval to open up blockages in the brain circulation.


    The ultimate goal of rehabilitation is to return the patient to an independent lifestyle as soon as possible. Successful stroke rehabilitation is dependent on many factors, including the severity of brain damage and the cooperation of family and friends. Not surprisingly, the attitude of the patient is a key factor in speed and recovery. A positive outlook and high level of determination may facilitate recovery. Depending on the area of the brain affected by the stroke, physical and mental damage may be mild or severe, ranging from dizziness and confusion, to sensory loss, to paralysis and even death. Patients with mild strokes or those who obtained successful medical therapy may need little or no rehabilitation. Because of the tremendous advances in stroke treatment, along with the ever-increasing sophistication of rehabilitation techniques, the outlook for stroke patients has never been more hopeful.
