It has been equipped with the best surgical instruments and operating theatre equipments from Germany and USA. A brand new state of the art Operating Microscope for Neurosurgery is being used in the department. Neuroendoscopic Keyhole treatment is available for treatment of Brain tumours and Intracranial Haemorrhages. This means that patients in Kerala, no longer have to travel to USA or Europe for world class Neurosurgical care – it is now available at their doorstep.

Dr Avinash Haridas was trained in Neurosurgery in all the major hospitals in London, UK. He completed most of his training in the Mecca of Neurosurgery – National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, London. He is trained in Microsurgery for brain and spine tumours, Transphenoidal surgery for Pituitary tumours, Head Injury Management, Complex spine surgery, management of hydrocephalus and Paediatric neurosurgery.

Neurosurgery department at KVM was the first hospital in Kerala to do Intracranial Pressure (ICP) monitoring for neuro critical care management of severe head injury patients.

KVM hospital has successfully treated over 4000 head injuries since Jan 2012. We have also treated many patients with spinal disc prolapse (slipped disc). Keyhole surgery for Pituitary tumours, brain tumours and intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH), subdural haemorrhage (SDH) has been done successfully. Surgery for brain tumours are being performed regularly. Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion for Cervical disc prolapses, posterior cervical foraminotomies for cervical disc prolapses with radiculopathy, lumbar microdiscectomies for lumbar disc prolapses with radiculopathy, posterior stabilisation with pedicle screws for lumbar spondylolisthesis is being done regularly.

We have a state of the art multislice CT scan that is capable of doing a head scan in 3 seconds and whole body scan in 14 seconds. This enables rapid triaging and management of multi-trauma patients. Neurosurgery department is complemented by Orthopaedics, General Surgery, Maxillofacial surgery, ENT and Ophthalmology departments in delivering world-class trauma care.
