BRAIN TUMOUR SURGERY
Brain tumours hits you with little warning and can present themselves in a variety of ways. Neurosurgery Partners aims to take you through the process of diagnosis and possibly surgery so that informed decisions can be made sensibly. Treatments range from ‘awake surgery’ to neuronavigation and radiosurgery. With training and expertise to perform surgery on benign tumours like meningiomas, pituitary adenomas to extensive and complex skull base tumours and malignant gliomas (brain cancer), only the best modality that suits the problem will be used.


SPINE SURGERY
Treatment options can be rather confusing for common problems like back pain and other spine-related problems. Fortunately, most spine problems can be treated with accurate diagnosis, targeted physiotherapy and individualized back-care programme. With our training in surgical neurology and our understanding of the nervous system and the musculoskeletal systems, we can provide solutions to your woes. Where surgery is needed, minimally invasive surgery (key-hole surgery) as well as new technologies like spinal navigation will help to improve the outcome and reduce discomfort after surgery. Also includes disc athroplasty, spinal fusion, lumbar microdiscectomy and various spinal injections and blocks.


STROKE SURGERY
Stroke, while treatable for some is a potentially devastating disease that comes in many forms. We have wide experience in specialized surgery like Aneurysm surgery, AVM (arteriovenous malformation) surgery, Carotid endarterectomies and Complex By-pass procedures. While microsurgery has made all this possible, we continue to plan each procedure with 3-dimensional imaging and Virtual-reality systems have made it possible for us to visualize the most suitable surgical approaches that will minimize risks. Intra-operative angiography integrated with the operating microscope has made surgery safer.


HEAD INJURY (NEUROTRAUMA)
Severe head injuries are life-threatening and require specialised intensive care and intricate brain monitoring techniques. Our research in this field has improved our understanding of the complexity of neurotrama and this has translated into our clinical care. We have pioneered the use of multi-modality monitoring techniques in Singapore including the use of cerebral microdialysis, brain tissue oxygenation and intracranial pressure monitoring. Our study into the regulation of blood flow in the brain, cerebrovascular reactivity and cerebral autoregulation forms the basis of our treatment regimes in severe head injury.


OTHER SPECIALISED SERVICES

SWEATY PALM SURGERY

Endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy (an MIS procedure) can be performed to permanently rid you of excessive sweating in the hands and underarms. It is a peculiar problem in hot and humid countries and this has lead to our large experience in this procedure for more than a decade.


COMPLEX CEREBROSPINAL FLUID PROBLEMS / COMPLEX HYDROCEPHALUS

Ventriculo-peritoneal Shunting (VP shunts). We have a special interest in complex cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) problems including Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus, Benign Intracranial Hypertension and Compensated Hydrocephalus. This stems from our sub-specialised research interest and training for more than a decade.
