(CNS): Health City Cayman Islands has expanded its services to include neurosurgery. The facility now offers  a wide range of neuro-spinal procedures including the treatment of various conditions of the brain, such as tumours and aneurysms, as well as back and neck problems.

Consultant neurosurgeon and spinal surgeon Dr. Komal Prasad said there was a common misconception that neurosurgeons just perform brain surgery, but they are the only physicians who treat the entire spine as well, including the spinal cord.

“Choosing a neurosurgeon for your brain as well as your spine health will ensure you’re getting the most experienced and relevant medical attention,” he said.

According to the hospital, the neurosurgery department is equipped with a state-of-the-art operating microscope for use in various minimally invasive brain and spinal procedures.  In addition to brain disorders, the doctors can treat spinal conditions such as neck and back pain, herniated discs and sciatica.

“The minimally invasive approach we use results in smaller scars, shorter recovery times, less post-operative pain and shorter hospital stays,” Dr. Prasad said. “In fact, many patients are home within 24 hours after this kind of minimally invasive spinal procedure.”
