Functional neurosurgery is a branch of neurosurgery that involves the surgical treatment of neurological disorders that affect the function of the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves. These procedures aim to improve the patient's quality of life by alleviating symptoms that may have been caused by conditions such as Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, dystonia, and chronic pain.
Dr. Vikas Bhardwaj is a highly skilled neurosurgeon with extensive experience in performing functional neurosurgeries. He uses the latest techniques and technologies to accurately identify and target the affected area of the brain, while minimizing damage to the surrounding healthy tissue.
Dr. Vikas Bhardwaj may perform a variety of procedures depending on the patient's condition. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a common procedure used to treat conditions such as Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, and dystonia. During this procedure, electrodes are implanted in specific areas of the brain and connected to a small device that sends electrical impulses to the brain, which can help control symptoms.
Another procedure commonly used by Dr. Vikas Bhardwaj is motor cortex stimulation (MCS), which involves implanting electrodes in the motor cortex of the brain to help control chronic pain.
Dr. Vikas Bhardwaj works closely with each patient to determine the most appropriate treatment plan based on their individual needs and medical history. He is committed to providing compassionate and comprehensive care to each of his patients, ensuring the best possible outcome.
