Neurosurgery in Dubai at Clemenceau Medical Center Hospital Dubai
Our Neurosurgery Service at CMC Dubai is a division in the Department of Neuroscience, which includes as well other divisions like Neurology, Interventional Neuro-radiology, Neuro-physiology, Physical therapy etc. These divisions complement each other to provide highest level of medical care to patients suffering of all kinds of diseases affecting the central and peripheral nervous systems.
This division of Neurosurgery is a primary caretaker of several neurologic diseases, from diagnosis to medical management in addition to surgical intervention.
These neurological entities include:
Cerebral strokes (hemorrhagic and non-hemorrhagic)
Traumatic Brain, Spine and Peripheral nerve injuries
Congenital malformations of the central nervous system
Neurosurgery remains the most critical field in medicine. Our philosophy at CMC-Dubai is to be aggressive wherever indicated, aiming at saving lives with no, or minimal, surgical risks. Surgical options and alternatives, supported by numbers and references, will always be presented and discussed with the patients and their relatives, aiming at best neurologic outcome.
Our Neurosurgery Division at CMC-Dubai will be functioning in complete collaboration and harmony with other divisions in the Department of Neuroscience, namely
Neurology for assisting in the work up and medical management of our patients;
Interventional Neuro-radiology for obtaining correct diagnosis, performing complicated biopsies and treating difficult vascular malformations and aneurysms endo-vascular
Neuro-physiology, mainly diagnostic (Electromyography, nerve conduction studies, electroencephalography…) and for intra-operative neuro monitoring
Physical therapy for best post-operative rehabilitation.
Our division will also be in complete alignment with the Orthopedic division regarding spine diseases and malformations that necessitate dual care, to get the best surgical outcome on these patients.
We handle all Neurosurgical entities, backed by a super modern operating theater, fully equipped with the most advanced technology. These include
State-of-the-art neurosurgical microscope, a technology that combines optical and digital visualization modalities to provide the most advanced surgical certainty, and that integrates fluorescence of different wave-lengths to provide real-time visualization of intra-operative blood flow as well as differentiation between tumor and normal brain tissues.
Another outstanding technology that marks our operating theater is the new concept Neuro-navigation system, made compact and simple to use by utilizing electromagnetic waves rather than optical waves and cameras, thus providing an accurate localization of our surgical position in brain and spine, yielding the best outcome.
A refined ultrasound machine will also be available in all our Neurosurgical procedures for best real-time intra-operative spatial localization.
Advanced intra-operative neurophysiological monitoring including refined intra-operative brain mapping using cortical stimulation technique, somatosensory and motor evoked potentials on all spine and spinal cord surgeries, and brain stem evoked responses on brain stem and posterior fossa surgeries.
