Neurology and Neurosurgery

MedicaTRUST’s Neurology and Neurosurgery Departments offer comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services for the most complex conditions. Both neurology and neurosurgery programs for adults and children work closely with other pediatric, radiological and oncologic disciplines to provide comprehensive care for our patients. Our contracted hospitals use the latest technology available in neurosurgery.

All kinds of neurosurgical operations can be performed in our contracted service points:

Adults

Brain

  • Brain tumors (benign and malignant)
  • Skull base tumors
  • Vascular Diseases (cerebral hemorrhage, cerebral aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, cavernous malformations and stroke)
  • Hydrocephalus (liquid accumulation in the brain)
  • Trauma
  • Congenital malformations
  • Infections
  • Functional neurosurgery (movement disorder surgery, pain surgery)
  • Gamma knife radiosurgery

Spine

  • Herniated Disc Surgery
  • Neck
  • Waist
  • Degenerative and age-related spinal disorders
  • Spine surgeries
  • Spinal cord and spinal cord tumors
  • Vascular malformations (Spinal arteriovenous malformations)
  • Trauma
  • Infections

 

Peripheral nervous system

  • Nerve Injury Syndromes
  • Nerve Injuries

 

Pediatric

  • Congenital Cerebral Anomalies
  • Hydrocephalus (fluid accumulation in the brain)
  • Craniosynostosis (early closure of skull bones)
  • Arachnoid cysts (brain cysts)
  • Craniovertebral abnormalities
  • Spinal Dysraphism (Connective Cord Syndrome, Split Cord Anomalies)

 

Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a completely clinical diagnosis. An accurate diagnosis can be made after the patient’s detailed history has been rested or after compliance has been observed. EEG (electroencephalography), brain MR (magnetic resonance), PET scanning, SPECT, and neuropsychological evaluation are methods that help diagnose epilepsy.

In MedicaTRUST’s Adult and Child Neurosurgery Units, any surgical intervention available in the epilepsy surgeon is performed. Although primary treatment of epilepsy is medical, approximately 20-30% of cases may not respond to drugs. In such patients, all three methods of epilepsy surgery (resection surgery, separation surgery, and vagal nerve stimulation) are successfully performed in our contracted patients
