Neurosurgery Department of Shifa International
Surgeries are delicate procedures but surgeries of the brain are even more intricate. Neurosurgery department headed by Dr. Inayat Ullah Khan insists on perfection in diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the brain and spinal cord.
Shifa international has installed latest neuronavigation system for these surgeries. With the assistance of top of the range microscope and sophisticated machines, tumors can be precisely located and removed. This ensures minimal effect to neighboring brain cells and hence a fast recovery. Previously some of the surgeries like those for pituitary tumor removal were carried out with the help of microscope which now has been replaced by endoscope adding to precision and quality of surgery results. Attention on details, embracing new methodologies, and constant desire to improve is the reason behind their excellence.

- Reduced duration of operation
- Shorter hospital stay
- Low chances of infection after surgery
- Fast recovery
