Elective brain surgery refers to non-emergency type surgeries performed by a neurosurgeon to treat congenital or acquired conditions.

These may include:

  • Abnormalities of the intracranial blood vessels, eg. Aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations

  • Epilepsy surgery

  • Infective conditions, eg. Abscess drainage, evacuation of subdural empyemas

  • Nerve decompression, eg. Trigeminal neuralgia

  • Hydrocephalus – congenital and acquired (both shunt placement and endoscopic)

  • Brain tumours both benign and malignant

Common symptoms encountered when dealing with the above-mentioned conditions may include severe headaches, nausea, vomiting, drowsiness, and seizures. Dr. Kolloori is a highly skilled and meticulous neurosurgeon who strives to treat each surgery on a case-by-case basis with a holistic patient-centered approach
