    Apollo Hospital's Neurology and Neurosurgery is at par to international standards. It treats diseases effecting the brain, nerves, spinal cord and muscles.

    1. Brain tumors can form from the brain itself or its coverings, like meningiomas, pituitary tumors and pineal tumors. They arise also from the nerves at the base of the brain or even from outside the brain known as metastatic brain tumors. Maximum of the brain tumors are primary.

    Treatment of brain tumor is difficult because of the critical location of some tumors, polyclonicity, the blood brain barrier and the spreading nature of the these tumors. Effective treatment is surgery (total removal), radiotherapy, and chemotherapy. New technologies such as stereotactic computers, lasers, thermal killing machines, cryosurgery, radiosurgery, ultrasound, the Gamma Knife, photoirradiation, the X-Knife, blood:brain barrier disruption, boron neutron capture etc. are also used to treat tumors.

    2. Collection of blood on the surface of the brain, beneath the outer covering of the brain is a case of subdural hematoma. This generally is the result of a serious head injury. Medications vary according to the head injury but in emergency surgery an incision is made in the skull to reduce the pressure within the brain. Large hematomas need craniotomy.

    3. Cerebral aneurysms is an abnormal widening of a section of a blood vessel in brain. It may be present from birth or may develop later. Infection or trauma that injures the blood vessel wall can cause aneurysms. Aneurysms usually cause no symptoms until they rupture and cause bleeding. Headache, loss of vision, double vision, neck pain and eye pain are some of the symptoms following a rupture of the aneurysm. Neurosurgery is the primary treatment.

    4. When the brain is infected with bacteria and fungus there occurs a mass of immune cells or pus which is known as brain abscess. Cerebral infection is a medical emergency so much so that it can even cause death. Surgery is mainly required when there is a constant increase of intracranial pressure.

    5. Trigeminal neuralgia is a severe and painful inflammation of the trigeminal nerve which causes facial pain. Specific medication can be effective but if the situation aggravates with attacks of pain on touching the skin surgery may be required.
