This institute is well equipped with the state of art neurosurgical instruments like Neuronavigation, Stereotaxy, Neuroendoscope, Pentero 900 and NC4 operating microscopes integrated to navigation, variety of high speed drills and spinal instrumentation devices. I was involved in all day to day activities of the department: evaluation of patients in the outpatient department, academic and management oriented rounds in wards and intensive care unit and regular work in operating theatres. Apart from performing routine neurosurgical operations I have independently performed major neurosurgical operations like excision of meningial tumors, glial tumors, skull base surgery, cerebrovascular surgery, spine surgery, spine instrumentation and neurotrauma management.

The Hospital has a full fledged in house Oncology Department- Surgical, Radiation and Medical, along with whom we have weekly tumour board meetings. Hence we are able to follow our patient’s treatment in its entirety.
