Stereo tactic neurosurgery is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a three-dimensional coordinate system to precisely target and treat small areas of the brain or spine. Dr. Vikas Bhardwaj is an experienced neurosurgeon who performs stereo tactic neurosurgeries to treat various neurological conditions, such as brain tumors, Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, and chronic pain.
During a stereo tactic neurosurgery, Dr. Vikas Bhardwaj uses imaging techniques, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) scans, to create a detailed map of the brain or spine. This map allows him to precisely locate the area of the brain or spine that needs to be treated.
Once the target area has been identified, Dr. Vikas Bhardwaj uses a specialized instrument, such as a stereotactic frame or a robotic system, to guide a small electrode or probe to the precise location. The electrode or probe is then used to deliver targeted energy, such as heat or electricity, to the targeted tissue to destroy it or remove it.
Stereo tactic neurosurgeries are typically performed on an outpatient basis and have a high success rate with minimal risks and complications. Dr. Vikas Bhardwaj works closely with his patients to ensure they fully understand the procedure and its potential benefits and risks.
