The department of Neurosurgery with the presence of prominent neurosurgeons and advanced surgical equipment, provides the following services:
- Tumors of the brain and spinal cord
- Epilepsy (epilepsy)
- Orvancology in a variety of malignancies
- Spinal disorders (spinal cord)
- Types of injuries and brain hemorrhages due to accidents and falls (brain trauma)
- Congenital problems
- Jaw and facial problems
- Neurological sampling
- Monitoring of neuronal activity during surgery (IONM)
- Fixing the vertebral fractures
- Types of herniated discs
Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) and Stereotactic Surgery are performed in the hospitals. DBS is the use of electrodes that transmit a weakly controlled electrical current to specific nuclei in the depth of the brain, which controls and improves symptoms and sometimes completely control the symptoms of the disease. This method, which is carried out under the guidance of accurate imaging of these deep nuclei and then electrodes with accurate routing of computer systems, is today the latest accepted global approach to the treatment of some serious illnesses.
The usage of this surgery, which is currently being performed in Iran, is for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease, dystonia, tick and tortar disease, and traumatic leukemia. It is decided that more applications for psychiatric illnesses such as obsession, depression, dementia and dementia, as well as addiction in the near future, will start in Iran.
In a stereotactic surgical technique, using a stereotactic advanced system, stereotaxis, can be performed with great precision in deep and inaccessible areas of the brain without damage to the healthy tissue of the brain.
In this method, first, a stereotactic system is attached to the skull, accurate images are taken from the brain with MRI and then the spatial coordinates of each brain point to be selected for surgery are chosen. Afterwards, the calculated numbers are transferred to the stereotactic device, and from here onwards, you can access any point of the brain that is desired without direct seeing, and simply by guiding the computer. In this method, surgery is possible even without general anesthesia.
Performing most of the brain tumor sampling, especially in deep, sensitive, and inaccessible areas, the use of brain shunt, evacuation of cerebral hemorrhages in deep and sensitive areas, the use of radioactive materials in the presence of deep brain tumors, depletion of cysts and deep abscesses of the brain, and electrodes a deep brain can be used for DBS surgeries using this technique.
