STROKE

A stroke is a "brain attack". It can happen to anyone at any time. It occurs when blood flow to an area of brain is cut off. When this happens, brain cells are deprived of oxygen and begin to die. When brain cells die during a stroke, abilities controlled by that area of the brain such as memory and muscle control are lost.

How a person is affected by their stroke depends on where the stroke occurs in the brain and how much the brain is damaged. For example, someone who had a small stroke may only have minor problems such as temporary weakness of an arm or leg. People who have larger strokes may be permanently paralyzed on one side of their body or lose their ability to speak. Some people recover completely from strokes, but more than 2/3 of survivors will have some type of disability.

Strokes can occur at any age, though stroke risk increases as you get older. Ischemic stroke occurs as a result of an obstruction within a blood vessel supplying blood to the brain. It accounts for 87 percent of all stroke cases. Hemorrhagic stroke occurs when a weakened blood vessel ruptures. Two types of weakened blood vessels usually cause hemorrhagic stroke: aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). But the most common cause of hemorrhagic stroke is uncontrolled hypertension (high blood pressure). TIA (transient ischemic attack) is caused by a temporary clot. Often called a “mini stroke”, these warning strokes should be taken very seriously.

SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE

Subarachnoid Hemorrhage is a neurosurgical emergency caused by the rupture of a blood vessel on the surface of the brain. The commonest cause of a cerebral aneurysm is development of bulge due to weakness of the wall of a blood vessel in the brain. The second cause is a ruptured brain arteriovenous malformation (AVM). An AVM is a knot of abnormal and poorly developed blood vessels. These tend to occur in adults between the ages of 40 - 60 years and are rate in children.

EPILEPSY, PARKINSONISM

Epilepsy is a common disorder that affects about one percent of the population. It occurs due to an abnormal discharge from a group of nerve cells in the brain. It is often controlled with medicines or surgery is indicated when there is a tumor or other lesion in the brain responsible for the epilepsy. During surgery the focus can be identified using special recording and the focus can be excised. It occurs due to an abnormal discharge from a group of nerve cells in the brain.

SPINE PROBLEMS: BACK PAIN, NECK PAIN

The most common spine problem in society are back and neck pain. They affect not only the physical wellbeing of the patient but also the mental and socio - economic health of the family and society. Most often the pain is the result of extruded or prolapsed intervertebral discs. The management of this problems involves careful clinical and radiological assessment of the patient as well as teaching patients exercises and physiotherapy. Surgery of disc problems are done when there is no relief with other methods. Microsurgery and minimally Invasive Surgery goes a long way in relieving patients of their problems and getting them back early to their normal life. Spinal Microsurgery is also the effective way of dealing with tumors of the spine and spinal cord.
