Key procedures

  • We provide a full spectrum of neurosurgery that includes tumour surgery, vascular surgery, spine surgery, movement epilepsy, movement disorder procedures, trauma and spinal tumour surgery.
  • Among tumour surgery, skull-based tumours surgery is the most commonly performed. Moreover, we have exhaustive experience in dealing with pituitary tumours, acoustic tumours and skull-based meningioma, For example, in pituitary tumours, we carry out both endoscopic and micro-surgical procedures which is unique at Sakra Institute of Neurosciences.
  • In acoustic tumours the key is facial preservation and brain-stem preservation, both are done extremely well at our department and have achieved excellent results.
  • We have vast experience of neuro-vascular procedures involving cerebrovascular aneurysm, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), and tumour embolization.
  • Another specialty at the department of neurosurgery is that we are highly experienced in performing complex procedures such as
