NEUROMODULATION

Neuromodulation is the process whereby an implantable device is used to reversibly alter the activity of the nervous system. This may be accomplished using small doses of medications or a weak electrical current. By altering the activity of certain pathways in the nervous system, pain may be immediately and dramatically relieved.

STEREOTACTIC SURGERY FOR BRAIN BIOPSY

Prof Shahzad was the first Neurosurgeon in Lahore General Hospital to start Stereotactic Surgery for Brain Biopsy. He performs stereotaxy by using worlds most precise Inomed RM frame and IPS Planning software compatible with MRI and CT Scan which gives precise location of submillimeter accuracy of the lesion using 3D Computer Work Station which is the most advanced software in the world for Deep seated lesions, Thalamic lesions, Brainstem Gliomas, Multiple lesions, Brain abscesses, Hematomas, cystic lesions, Very small lesions and old aged patients not fit for Open brain surgery. Surgery is done through an opening of 2mm in the skull and using a very thin probe which reaches the lesion with an immaculate submillimeter accuracy making it the most precise technique in the world. Patients are operated with local anaesthesia and discharged same day.
