Paras Hospitals Gurgaon is one of the few hospitals in Delhi NCR known for its exceptional Neurosurgical expertise worldwide. It is the first hospital to have brain tumor navigation technology for 100% surgical precision and 0% error. The team of neurosurgeons supported by exceptional technology, Neuro ICU’s and neurosurgical technology specialise in brain tumor surgery, spinal surgery, spinal tumor surgery, brain trauma surgery, Subarachnoid Haemorrhage , Epilepsy Surgery, Head Injury, Cerebral Venous Disease, Cervical spondylosis , Lumbo – sacral spondylosis and compression of the spinal cord. The department of neurosciences also specialises in low grade gliomas and adenoma’s. Paras Hospitals Gurgaon is also one of the few centres in the country to have Deep Brain Stimulation Technology to treat paralysis, epilepsy, etc.
Advantages of Brain Tumour Navigation Technology :
- The path-breaking tumor navigation technology allows the surgeons to get a 3D view of the brain and better control their surgical procedures was installed at the multi-specialty Paras Hospital here today.
- The neuro-navigation technology comprises of advanced software modules that will enable surgeons to visualize the anatomy of the patient’s brain in 3D to get a comprehensive idea of the location of the tumor and the obstacles that can be encountered during surgery.
- When used during the surgery itself, the navigation tools present a three dimensional view of the anatomy, serving as a guide for the surgical instruments.
According to Dr VS Mehta , Chairman Neurosciences, Paras Healthcare, “Treating problems that occur inside the brain like lesions or tumors is very sensitive. It can be imagined how useful it can be for surgeons to have an imaging technology that gives them a 3 D comprehensive view of the area where the tumor is located both before and during the surgery.”
The neuro navigation software provides surgeons with 3D image data in higher resolution and enables them to visualize anatomical areas of interest with no segmentation including cortical surface, skull and vasculature.
This is a technology that benefits neuro surgery in a major way and is used for tractography (a 3D modeling technique used to visually represent neural tracts using data collected by diffusion tensor imaging (DTI).
