Mr Ranjeev Bhangoo's Places of Practice
What can Modern Neurosurgery Treatments be used for?
Modern neurosurgery achieves this aim in three ways:
- Start with the least invasive treatment possible and move to more invasive treatments as required.
- Work in a team to ensure the patient benefits from the widest range of informed opinion before deciding on a treatment plan – these multidisciplinary teams always include more than one neurosurgeon and other related specialists e.g. radiologists, oncologists, physiotherapists etc. The patient and their family are part of the team as any treatment decisions must recognise that their wishes are paramount. The surgeons involved in the team should not only be fully trained neurosurgeons but super-specialists in that particular area of neurosurgery e.g. neurosurgeons with particular training in brain tumours or paediatric neurosurgery etc.
- The use of modern technology such as gamma knife.
Neurosurgery for Pain Management
The aim of neurosurgery has always been to gain the maximal benefit for the patient with the minimum amount of risk. Neurosurgery can be used to treat back, neck, leg and arm pain following a thorough assessment by a neurosurgeon. In most cases further tests will be ordered to assess which nerves are involved in the pain and this is usually an MRI scan of the spine.Read full article
Neurosurgery for Brain Tumours
It is now well recognised that patients with brain tumours do best if their care is managed by a group of doctors, both medical and surgical, who have a particular interest in the management of brain tumours. This is known as a tumour Multidisciplinary Team (MDT). All patients with brain tumours should receive highly individualised care that delivers not only the best treatment possible for the patient but treatment that is appropriate to the patient’s and family’s psychological and emotional needs. The aim of neurosurgery has always been to gain the maximum benefit for the patient with the minimum amount of risk.Read full article
