S P Institute Of Neuroscienses
For everything in Neurology and Neurosurgery under One Roof
We are a group of medical professionals interested and trained in treating disorders of the nervous system. The hospital began as a small MRI unit but has grown into a speciality centre which has 15-bed neurological intensive care unit, two neurosurgical theatres with operating microscope, MR compatible stereotactic frame, ventriculoscope, spinal endoscope , a CathLab for neuro interventional work and other utilities necessary for neurology and neurosurgery. The diagnostic facilities include a digital x-ray, multi-slice CT scanner, a 1.5 Tesla MRI unit, EEG , 24-hour video EEG , NCV/EMGEP equipment to name a few along with modern pathology laboratory. We also have a specialized stroke unit which regularly does IV and IA thrombolysis. Recently we have added thrombosuction with Penumbra system and thrombectomy for acute stroke management. Interventional neurology has been doing carotid/intracranial stenting, coiling for aneurysms, embolization for AVMs and pre-operative embolization for intracranial tumours and angiofibromas. Neurology unit includes assessment of refractory seizures with high-resolution MR , 24-hour video EEG monitoring equipment. Functional surgery for certain movement disorders in addition to usual neurological evaluation and therapy. A plasmapheresis unit has been set up for the management of disorders like AIDP, myasthenia gravis, and other immunological disorders. A few months ago a state of the art new 3 Tesla MR has been installed and has added considerable quality and accuracy in assessing neurological disorders.
