Our experts deliver a range of neurosurgery for benign or malignant tumours in different areas of the brain and spinal cord, congenital cranial or spinal malformations, hydrocephalus cases in adults and children, cerebro-vascular disease, deep brain stimulation and surgical types of intracranial bleeding and infarction.

Neurosurgery encompasses a broad array of procedures, each designed to tackle specific neurological issues. From addressing traumatic injuries to complex tumour removals and intricate nerve surgeries, this field addresses conditions such as:

Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)

Trauma to the brain, caused by accidents or falls, often requires urgent surgical intervention to mitigate swelling and prevent further damage.

Brain Tumours

Neurosurgery plays a pivotal role in removing tumours affecting the brain, employing sophisticated techniques to minimise damage to surrounding healthy tissue.

Spinal Disorders

Conditions like herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and spinal deformities often necessitate surgical intervention to alleviate pain and restore function.

Cerebrovascular Disorders

Neurosurgical techniques are crucial in treating conditions like aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), and strokes caused by blockages or bleeding in blood vessels.

Innovative Techniques and Technologies

Advancements in technology have revolutionised neurosurgery, allowing for more precise diagnoses and minimally invasive procedures, ultimately enhancing patient outcomes and reducing recovery times. Some of the groundbreaking technologies include:


High-resolution imaging techniques such as MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) and CT (Computed Tomography) scans provide detailed views of the brain and spinal cord, aiding in accurate diagnoses and treatment planning.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

Techniques such as endoscopic surgery and robotic-assisted procedures have significantly reduced the invasiveness of surgeries, leading to smaller incisions, less tissue damage, and quicker recovery for patients.

Stereotactic Radiosurgery

This non-invasive method delivers precisely targeted radiation to treat tumours and other abnormalities in the brain without the need for surgical incisions.


Implantable devices such as deep brain stimulators and spinal cord stimulators help manage chronic pain, movement disorders, and other neurological conditions by modulating neural activity.

The Role of Neurosurgeons

Our Neurosurgeons within the Neurosurgery Department at Mediclinic Airport Road Hospital Abu Dhabi undergo extensive training, typically spending years in residency programs to acquire the necessary skills and expertise. Their role extends beyond the operating room, encompassing patient consultation, diagnosis, surgical intervention, and post-operative care. Collaboration with multidisciplinary teams comprising neurologists, oncologists, radiologists, and rehabilitation specialists is integral to providing comprehensive care.

The Impact on Patient Care

Neurosurgery's impact on patient care is profound, offering hope and improving the quality of life for individuals grappling with debilitating neurological conditions. Successful surgeries can alleviate symptoms, restore function, and even save lives. Ongoing research and clinical trials continually expand the boundaries of what's possible, paving the way for innovative treatments and improved outcomes.

Equipment includes:

Electroencephalography (EEG)

EEG is a non-invasive test that measures and records the electrical activity in the brain. It involves placing electrodes on the scalp to detect the brain's electrical impulses, which are then translated into wave patterns. EEG is commonly used to diagnose and monitor various brain disorders such as epilepsy, sleep disorders, brain tumours, and other neurological conditions.

Nerve conduction studies (NCS)

NCS is a diagnostic test used to evaluate the function of nerves in the body. It involves the placement of electrodes on the skin along the nerve pathway. Mild electrical impulses are then sent through the electrodes to measure the speed and strength of the nerve's electrical signals. NCS assists in diagnosing nerve damage or conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, peripheral neuropathy, and other nerve-related disorders.


EMG is a diagnostic procedure that assesses the health of muscles and the nerves controlling them. It involves the insertion of thin needles into the muscles to record their electrical activity at rest and during contraction. EMG helps identify muscle and nerve disorders, such as muscular dystrophy, myasthenia gravis, and nerve injuries.

Visual evoked potentials (VEP)

VEP is a test used to evaluate the function of the optic nerve and the visual pathways in the brain. It involves presenting visual stimuli, typically patterns or flashing lights, to the patient while electrodes placed on the scalp record the brain's electrical responses to these stimuli. VEP aids in diagnosing conditions affecting the optic nerve and the visual pathways, such as optic neuritis, multiple sclerosis, and other visual disorders.

Each of these diagnostic tests plays a crucial role in assessing and diagnosing various neurological and neuromuscular conditions by analysing the electrical signals within the nervous system.
