Spine Clinic at Cytecare

Brains at Cytecare believes in improving the quality of life for people with spine problems. We offer comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for all types of spine problems from the most common to the most obscure.

We apply cutting edge technology, modern techniques and the most effective therapies to help you feel, move, perform and live better.

Cancer prevention and screening

Diagnosis of spinal problems, involves a thorough neurologic examination and combination of tests including:

  • X-rays. These tests are ordered on people who are suspected of having a spinal cord injury after trauma. X-rays can reveal vertebral (spinal column) problems, tumors, fractures or degenerative changes in the spine.
  • Computerized tomography (CT) scan. A CT scan may provide a better look at abnormalities seen on an X-ray. This scan uses computers to form a series of cross-sectional images that can define bone, disk and other problems.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MRI uses a strong magnetic field and radio waves to produce computer-generated images. This test is very helpful for looking at the spinal cord and identifying herniated disks, blood clots or other masses that may be compressing the spinal cord.

Brains at Cytecare offers the most appropriate comprehensive treatment and care for a wide range of spinal problems.

Treatment Modalities may include:

  • Conservative (Medical) Treatment
    • Medical Manangement with appropriate supportive therapy
  • Surgical management
    • The spinal surgery by a well trained , skilled team will be performed whenever indicated. Ultra modern theaters, state of the art equipment , dedicated neuro navigation and intra operative monitoring can make the spinal surgery safe. Dedicated pain relief team can make the post operative period comfortable and early ambulation possible. The rehabilitation and support therapies can facilitate early return to work.

Stereotactic Radiosurgery

The understanding and management of brain tumours has improved tremendously in the last two decades. Discovery of cell receptors, crucial enzymes and onco genes has made better understanding of tumour biology. There have been relentless efforts to improve therapeutic options for these tumours and thus resulting in improved surgical therapies, newer drugs and improvements in radiotherapy.

Stereotactic Surgery is a special field of neurosurgery designed to reach the tumour (focal point) in the brain in a minimally invasive way through a keyhole through a safe trajectory with precision. With advances in imaging calculations of X, Y and Z axis,reaching the target has become much more precise.

Pediatric Neurology

Cancer prevention and screening
Pediatric Neurosurgery focuses on the issues concerning the development and maturation of the nervous system and the disease affecting the nervous system in children.
There is a normal variation in achieving milestones in different children who are otherwise normal. Hence there is a need to detect the "abnormal from the normal" early, so that appropriate investigations can be done early for the cause and treatment/interventions can be expedited.
Developmental screening is a procedure designed to identify those children should receive more intensive assessment for detecting potential development delays
Birth defects are abnormalities of structure or function or metabolism (body chemistry) present at birth (congenital) that results in physical or mental disability.

Symptoms due to brain tumors in children are usually due to pressure on nearby structures or blockage of normal flow of fluids through the brain. These symptoms include:

  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea and Vomiting
  • Weakness or lack of co-ordination
  • Seizures and visual changes

The presence of brain tumor is suspected when the child undergoes a detailed neurological examination of a doctor. This is confirmed by scanning techniques like Computed Tomography (CT Scan) And Magnetic Resonance Imaging(MRI).

Neurological Rehabilitation

Neurological rehabilitation is a program where in the doctor designs and supervises a program to deal with any issues pertaining to the nervous system, be it a disease, disorder or trauma of the same. This type of rehabilitation enhances the functioning of the individual, tapers the symptoms and the patient generally shows a marked improvement.

Conditions that can benefit from neurological rehabilitation

  • Vascular disorders, namely Hematoma, Ischemic Strokes (due to blood clots), and Hemorrhagic Strokes (as a result of bleeding inside the brain)
  • Subdural and Transient Ischemic Attacks (TIAs) Infections, such as Meningitis, Encephalitis, Polio, and Brain Abscesses Trauma, caused due to injury to the brain and spinal cord.
  • Functional disorders namely Dizziness, Seizures, Neuralgia and Headaches.
  • Neuromuscular disorders, namely Cervical Spondylosis, Bell’s palsy, Myasthenia gravis, Muscular Dystrophy, Carpal Tunnel’s Syndrome, Peripheral Neuropathy, Guillain-Barré’s Syndrome and tumors of the spinal cord and brain.
  • Degenerative disorders, namely Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Huntington’s Cholera Alzheimer’s disease.
