Understand Neuroendoscopy

Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) has transformed the way life-threatening diseases are treated. The medical community acknowledges that MIS has improved surgical results and opened up new avenues for inpatient treatment. There are many different forms of MIS depending on the organ affected, the health condition concerned, and the complex procedures required in the treatment. Neuro Endoscopy is one such MIS performed at the Wockhardt Hospitals for patients in need.

What is Neuroendoscopy?

Neuroendoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to treat a range of problems related to the head, brain, and spine. A small incision or a natural entrance/hole in the body is used to insert an endoscope (a thin, flexible camera) and other necessary surgical tools instead of creating a major cut in the skull. Neuroendoscopy, also known as Endoscopic Neurosurgery, is an extremely precise surgical procedure that minimizes the need to handle the brain and major nerves while maintaining their functionality.

When is Neuroendoscopy Used?

Neurosurgeons often resort to Neuroendoscopy surgery to treat major medical conditions of the central nervous system, including the brain and spinal cord, or to fix any craniofacial damage. By avoiding major cuts, it enables doctors to reach areas of the brain that are difficult to reach with open surgery. 

Neuroendoscopy is used to treat multiple kinds of tumors and cancers, cysts, neurological conditions, and injuries caused by trauma.

Diagnosing Conditions
for Neuroendoscopy

There are many indications and symptoms that might necessitate the use of a Neuroendoscopy surgery, as each of the conditions mentioned above has its own distinctive symptoms. To exclude or confirm a specific disease, the experts working on the case will request one or more of the following tests:

Neuroendoscopic Procedure

Before
Procedure

Usually, Neuroendoscopy takes place at a hospital and often necessitates at least one overnight stay for observation. Unless the doctor instructs them otherwise, patients can continue taking their regular medications. Patients must wait a few hours to eat or drink before surgery due to the use of a general anesthetic. The patient will be given painkillers to help them feel comfortable after procedures requiring tiny incisions in the scalp and skull bone.

During
Procedure

A tiny tube (cannula) will be inserted by the physician into a vein in the back of the hand. Through the cannula, the anesthesiologist administers the anesthetic medication. A tiny hole, referred to as a burr hole, is carefully made in the skull by the doctor. They inserted the endoscope through the opening and into the brain’s fluid-filled compartments. An endoscope is a long tube with an eyepiece and a monitor attached. This makes it possible for the doctor to view the inside of the brain.

After
Procedure

The anesthesia may cause the patient to feel slightly sleepy. As soon as they are completely awake, they should be able to eat and drink. During the initial hours, the nurse will keep a close eye on them. The neurosurgical care team will give instructions on how to care for any incisions before leaving the hospital, as well as guidelines for appropriate activity levels and suggested follow-up consultations. For the most part, recovery after a Neuroendoscopy procedure is painless, and quality of life is significantly enhanced.

The doctor will give specific discharge instructions, such as the following, prior to hospital discharge:

FAQs Neuro Endoscopy in India

Depending on the area of the brain where the Neuroendoscopy procedure was performed and the problems that the patient was experiencing before the surgery, the majority of patients can be sent home within 1 to 2 days. To fully recover from brain surgery, it usually takes between 4 and 8 weeks.

After a Neuroendoscopy procedure, it is highly advised to avoid exercising that involves heavy lifting and strenuous jogging. Pushing or swimming are two more activities that are not advised since they might produce jarring internal motions and tension.

After roughly six weeks of the Neuroendoscopy procedure, one can go back to work (for minimal tasks only). Remember that it can take three months before you can drive a car again.
