Additional higher fellowship training of 1 – 2 years is expected from doctors in order to practice advanced Specialized Neurosurgery Treatment Procedure in India.

Common Divisions within Neurosurgery

  • Vascular & Endovascular Neurosurgery
  •  Stereotactic Neurosurgery
  • Functional Neurosurgery
  • Epilepsy Neurosurgery includes partial or total corpus callostomy which serves part or all of corpus callosum so as to stop or lessen seizure activity & spread along with surgical removal of psychological, functional and/or anatomical divisions of brain known as epileptic foci causing seizures.
  • Oncological Neurosurgery which is also known as Neurosurgical Oncology includes pediatric oncological neurosurgery solutions like treatment of benign & malignant peripheral & central nervous system cancers & precancerous lesions in children & adults. These among others include glioblastoma multiforme & other gliomas, astrocytoma, brain stem cancer, pontine glioma, spinal cancer, medulloblastoma, tumors of intracranial spaces & meninges, secondary metastases to nerves, spine & brain & peripheral nervous system tumors.
  •  Skull Base Surgery

Neuropathology confronted by neurosurgeons can be either, traumatic, acquired, congenital, due to infection, or degenerative or neoplastic conditions. Conditions like pediatric cancers, congenital hydrocephalus & myelomeningocele are also encountered in children while trauma with spine or head injury & bleeding due to arteriovenous malformation can be encountered in young adults. Aneurysmbleeds, degenerative spine disease & Parkinson’s disease are generally encountered among older patients. Neuropathology is a well developed branch of science concerning pathology involving the nervous system.


This is a highly developed branch of science which is linked to neurosurgery. Neuroanesthesia plays a major role in neurosurgery.


This branch not only plays a key role in diagnosis but also in the operative sphere of neurosurgery. Neuroradiology methods are commonly employed in diagnosis & neurosurgical treatments. Some good examples of this include Stereotactic Radiosurgery, MEG or Magnetoencephalography, PET or Positron Emission Tomography, MRI or Magnetic Resonance Imaging & CT or Computed Tomography. Neuroradiology neurosurgery procedures involve using Functional MRI & Intra-Operative MRI.

Some conditions which are effectively treated through neurosurgery are listed below:

  • Spinal Disc Herniation
  • Meningitis
  •  Central Nervous System Infections including Abscesses
  •  Cervical Spinal Stenosis
  • Lumbar Spinal Stenosis
  •   Spinal Cord Trauma
  •  Head Trauma including Skull Fractures & Brain Hemorrhages
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Traumatic Injuries to Peripheral Nerves
  • Intracerebral Hemorrhage like Intracellular & Interdepartmental Hemorrhages & Subarachnoid Hemorrhage
  • Tumors of Peripheral Nerves, Spine & Spinal Cord
  •  Drug Resistant Epilepsy
  • Forms of Intractable Psychiatric Disorders
  •  Intractable Pain of Trauma & Cancer Patients
  • Cranial / Peripheral Nerve Pain
  • Movement Disorders like Chorea & Advanced Parkinson’s Disease
