Neurosurgery (Neurological Surgery) is the surgical specialty involved in the treatment of disorders of the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves. Modern neurosurgery has benefited greatly from advances in microsurgery. Some neurosurgical procedures even involve the use of MRI and functional MRI intraoperatively. As one of the most research-oriented specialties of medicine, the scope of neurosurgery has expanded as new diagnostic techniques allow surgeons to perform more complicated surgeries. Some of the most recent and innovative advances have been radio surgery using the Gamma knife and Cyberknife for tumor treatment and endovascular surgery for the treatment of aneurysms.

The concept of Rehabilitation is not very popular in India yet. Many people - even doctors and medical practitioners - don't appreciate the concept of total rehabilitation. While a few government sponsored institutions are doing work on a small scale, it is indeed very important to arouse the public awareness about physical and medical rehabilitation.
At Kant Brain Centre, Physical and Medical Rehabilitation specialist attends the patient with the above-mentioned experts to formulate a complete treatment plan. The progress is regularly monitored by a committee and the treatment plan is updated as per progress achieved so far.
Neurodiagnostic tests, also called neurodiagnostics are done when a patient's illness or condition is thought to be based in the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). Signs of nervous system disorders include the following:
- Chronic headaches
- Hearing and vision changes
- Numbness and tingling
There are two types of neurodiagnostic testing: imaging tests or scans (e.g., x-ray, CT scan, MRI scan, PET scan) and electrical impulse detection (e.g., EEG, EMG). Neurodiagnostic testing may be conducted as part of a neurological exam.
