Health City Cayman Islands Opens Neurosurgery Services

Health City Cayman Islands is expanding its services to include a wide-range of neuro-spinal procedures, overseen by a team of certified neuro-spinal surgeons.  The services will include the treatment of various conditions of the brain, such as brain tumours and aneurysms as well as back and neck problems

Dr Komal Prasad, Consultant Neurosurgeon and Spinal Surgeon, said there was a common misconception that neurosurgeons only perform brain surgery, however they are the only physicians who treat the entire spine as well, including the spinal cord.

“Choosing a neurosurgeon for your brain as well as your spine health will ensure you’re getting the most experienced and relevant medical attention,” Dr Komal said.

The Department of Neurosurgery at Health City is equipped with state-of-the-art operating microscope for various minimally invasive brain and spinal procedures.  Health City offers treatment for various diseases of the brain including brain tumours and spinal conditions like neck pain, back pain, surgery for herniated disc and Sciatica.

“The minimally invasive approach we use result in smaller scars, shorter recovery times, less post-operative pain and shorter hospital stays.  In fact, many patients are home within 24 hours after this kind of minimally invasive spinal procedure,” said Dr Komal.

Health City opened this service on September 14th, and offers patients with brain or spinal health issues a world-class specialist treatment at an affordable price.
