Dr Abhinav Gupta is the Best Interventional Neuroradiologist in Delhi, NCR. He has had extensive training in both India and abroad and mastered these techniques. He offers Endovascular (Neuro-surgical treatment via blood vessels) for lesions of the head, neck, spine, brain, and spinal cord.
These are minimally invasive procedures for brain and spine, done in a Neuro-cath lab (Neuro Intervention Suite). The surgeon inserts a catheter resembling long tube into the groin and thread it up through the vessels at the problem site. Once the catheter is in place depending on the condition the surgeon can deliver medications or utilize the medical device to accomplish treatment.
For spinal anomalies resulting from a compression fracture, tumor of the spine or narrowing of the spinal canal, the surgeon will insert cannula’s resembling like a tube, directly to the problem site and work through them to lessen any pressure on the nerve region in order to relieve the patients of pain.
In both the cases, the surgeon uses the minimally invasive technique which also transmits internal images of the brain or the spine on a large screen where the procedure is carried out throughout the procedure allowing them to clearly visualize the problem area.
There are best possible treatment outcomes even when the neurointerventional treatment is considered as less invasive than other traditional methods hence are more attractive options to patients.
There are many conditions of brain and spine which can be treated with neurointerventional procedures, some of them are:
- Spinal compression fractures
Although this technique is not fit for all treatment for every individual patient case that falls within this category, these surgical technique has proven benefits over traditional treatments, benefits like:
- Shorter recovery time
- Fewer complications
- Less post-operative pain
