BRAIN SURGERY :
- Microsurgery for brain tumours, we use stereotaxyand navigation system to ensure precision and safety of patient.
- Head trauma management and surgery. Head injury cases continues to form a substantial number of all neurosurgical admissions. We have a well equipped I.C.U and good support of all other specialities so Holy Family Hospital is considered a major referral hospital for multi trauma patients.
- Surgery for Brain haemorrhage and Stroke. These are critical, life saving Surgeries and our team works in close association with Neurologist & intensivist.

- Neurovascular Surgery includes operation for aneurysm and A.V.M. Now-a-days many patients can be treated without operation by coiling, stenting and ballooning. However, a small number of patients my need operative intervention like clipping.
- Functional Neurosurgical procedures:
• Radio frequency ablation for trigeminal neuralgia (severe facial pain)
• D.B.S (Deep Brain Stimulation) for Parkinsonism, Dystonia
• Implantation of Baclofen pump for severe spasticity of limbs.
NEURO SPINE SURGERY :
- Micro Surgery for Lumbar and Cervical disc prolapse. Low back and neck pain is a major life style problem. Most of the patients (95% - 98%) can be treated by a short course of medication, Physiotherapy and life style changes. However, a small number of patients may need surgical intervention. Micro Surgical procedure ensures short hospital stay, least discomfort to patient and early return to normal activity.
