Humankind has been familiar with disorders of the nervous system and brain for years. Parkinson's disease, for instance, was referred to as the ‘shaking palsy' in 1817. It was only late into the 20th century, although, that a deficiency in the neurotransmitter dopamine was discovered as the cause of Parkinson's disease and its symptoms like tremors and muscle rigidity. Alzheimer's disease was first discussed in 1906.

What is Neurosurgery?

Neurosurgery is a branch of medical science which deals with disorders, diseases, and conditions of the nervous system. The terminology neurosurgery comes from a combination of 2 words - 'Neuron'' meaning nerve and ''Surgery” meaning ''to operate".

There are around a hundred billion neurons in the brain, capable of generating their own impulses and of receiving and sending or transmitting impulses from neighboring cells.

We offer a continuum of treatment services, starting with a conservative approach and moving on to more advanced therapies if your condition warrants it.


Neurosurgery includes the treatment and surgery of:

  •   The central nervous system, peripheral nervous system, and also autonomic nervous system.
  •   Structural and functional disorders of the nervous system starting from birth defects through to degenerative diseases like Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease.
