Different types of brain surgeries are performed depending on the affected area and condition of the brain. Advanced technologies in the medical field allow brain surgeons to operate on any portion of the brain without an incision in or near the head.

Brain surgery is one of the most specialized and delicate branches in the field of medicine.

The blood clots can occur in the Brain and it requires immediate removal or evacuation by surgery which can be done on an emergency basis. The water content in the Brain can increase because of various reasons and shunt procedures are routinely done to overcome this problem especially in children. Some children are born with abnormalities of head and Brain, there are many corrective procedures which are necessary at that early age for a child’s normal growth.

The stereotactic procedures now are routinely performed, especially for small lesions of the Brain. The incision is very small and sometimes these procedures are done under local anaesthesia. In the case of head injuries, surgery is needed if there is a fractured skull, blood clot in and around the brain. Recovery from anaesthesia is almost immediate, patients can eat and drink within a few hours after surgery. After brain surgery, the person needs a short stay in the hospital and within a few weeks can resume his /her job.
