Kamineni Hospitals Offers a Ray of Hope to a 30-Year-Old Homemaker Through the Successful Awake Craniotomy Procedure
Hyderabad: In a remarkable medical achievement, Kamineni Hospital, a renowned healthcare provider specializing in advanced neuroscience services, has conducted a successful Awake Craniotomy procedure on Mrs. Vijaya, a 30-year-old homemaker from Suryapet. This groundbreaking procedure, made possible by the expertise of the neurosurgeons, state-of-the-art imaging technology, and a skilled medical team, has brought new hope to Mrs. Vijaya and her family.
Mrs. Vijaya’s medical journey began when she experienced a seizure and was subsequently diagnosed with a large lesion in the left motor area of her brain. To gain a comprehensive understanding of the lesion and its relation to motor tracts, the medical team utilized a cutting-edge 3 Tesla MRI scanner with high-end protocols, including Tractography. Functional MRI was employed to precisely locate the motor area, which was found to be in close proximity to the lesion.
After careful evaluation and extensive counseling of Mrs. Vijaya’s family, the decision was made to proceed with an awake craniotomy and excision of the lesion. This surgical technique, though high risk, offers the advantage of real-time assessment of motor functions during the procedure. The patient’s family was briefed about the potential risks associated with the surgery, including seizures and the need for immediate ventilatory support, as well as the possibility of transient limb weakness.
Speaking about the procedure, Dr. Ramesh, Senior Neurosurgeon at Kamineni Hospitals, LB Nagar, said, “During the surgery, the patient experienced seizures. However, with the support of our skilled medical and anesthesiology team, we were able to promptly control them using seizure medications and ice cold saline. Additionally, the utilization of intraoperative high-resolution ultrasound allowed us to identify abnormal brain parenchyma, facilitating the successful excision of the lesion. The patient experienced transient weakness following the surgery, which gradually improved over time.”
The availability of an advanced neuroscience center equipped with state-of-the-art technology played a pivotal role in achieving these positive outcomes for Mrs. Vijaya. Dr. Ramesh added, “At Kamineni Hospitals, we are dedicated to providing exceptional care and employing the latest advancements in the field of neuroscience. This case exemplifies the commitment of our team in delivering the best possible outcomes for our patients.”
Expressing her gratitude, Mrs. Vijaya said, “I am profoundly grateful to the doctors and nursing staff at Kamineni Hospitals for their exceptional care and service. They have given me a new lease on life, and I am thankful for their expertise and dedication.”
The successful Awake Craniotomy procedure conducted at Kamineni Hospitals highlights the institution’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of medical innovation and providing hope to patients facing complex neurological conditions. It serves as a testament to the skill and dedication of the medical professionals involved, as they continue to make significant strides in the field of neuroscience.
