Section of Neurosurgery
The Section of Neurosurgery under the Department of Surgery at the Aga Khan University Hospital offers surgical treatment and care for neurosurgical conditions – ailments of the nervous system including the brain and spine. These include treatment for malignant and benign brain and spinal tumours, brain and spine trauma, and other disorders and diseases of the nervous system.
Our internationally trained and diverse team of surgeons offers excellence in adult and child clinical practice and maintains the highest standards for surgical care. We were the first outside of North America to introduce an organized system approach for Awake Craniotomy, a brain procedure performed while the patient is awake, using a Neuro-Robotic Exoscope that enhances surgical precision, limiting the risk of operative damage and shortens patient recovery time.
Each patient comes with a unique problem and our surgeons understand this. They will work with you to develop an individualised surgical plan to suit your condition and needs and work with their colleagues in Neurology, Psychiatry, Oncology, Radiology, and others to give you the best comprehensive care possible.
