Mumbai’s Dr. Gurneet Singh Sawhney States Advancements In Neurosurgery Promise Better And Longer Lives

Mumbai’s Dr. Gurneet Singh Sawhney is one of the best neurosurgeons in India reiterates that the latest advancements in neurosurgery have bought in a new wave of hope amongst patients with neurological issues especially those requiring surgery.

Currently, Dr. Gurneet Singh Sawhney is a Consultant and HOD, Department of Neurosurgery, Fortis Hospital, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. He comes with 14+ years of hands-on experience and expertise in handling some of the most complicated neurosurgery cases across all age groups.

Sharing his views on advancements in neurosurgery, Dr. Gurneet Singh Sawhney, is a leading neurosurgeon in Mumbai states, ‘A tumour in the brain in the spine need not cause much fear in the patients. Today, it is possible to not only accurately diagnose the tumor but also ensure its total excision. Moreover, with emerging oncology treatments, it is possible to recover from malignant tumours and live normally once again.

The turn of the century has bought in immense advancements in neurosurgery especially Deep Brain Stimulation, awake tumour excision, cerebral revascularization, and intraoperational neuromonitoring to mention the prominent ones.

Deep Brain Stimulation is an elective surgery that improves the lives of patients suffering from Parkinson's disease, dystonia, or essential tremor and reducing their dependence on medicines. Through the DBS surgery, the neurosurgeon places a neuro-stimulator in the skin of the collarbone in the chest area or the abdomen while the electrodes are placed deep within the brain. The patient controls the brain activity through a handheld device. Post DBS surgery, the patients gain stability and balance while they can properly walk as their tremors, stiffness and slowness reduce greatly.

Awake Tumor Excision has emerged as one of the most preferred surgeries for brain tumour excision in the motor and the speech areas which are the most important areas of the brain. The patient is awake during the surgery and responds to queries either verbally and/or through movement during the mapping phase. An awake tumour excision requires a great deal of expertise, experience, and adeptness for safe and complete excision of the tumour with no damage to the brain.

Lastly, Dr. Gurneet Singh Sawhney propounds on the role of Intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring during neurosurgery. This intraoperative monitoring continuously evaluates the electrical activity in single or multiple neural pathways in the patient undergoing surgery. This is extremely important as it guides the neurosurgeon on the likelihood of damage to the important areas of the brain which cannot be reversed, thereby safeguarding the brain while ensuring the removal of the tumour and the affected section of the brain.

These advancements are merely a tip of the gamut of enhanced neurosurgery protocols available to the medical fraternity. Ongoing medical research and advancements are likely to offer even more advancements in the coming times. So, there is still hope for neurology and neurosurgery to evolve much higher shortly.
