Hyderabad: Infections, haemorrhage, swelling and head injuries are some of the prime reasons for brain surgery but experts say taking the patient under the knife is the last option because of the complexities of the procedure which could lead to disability or death.

Senior doctors said despite advancements in technology, dealing with brain surgeries requires much expertise and continues to be a challenging area.

 

Senior neurosurgeon Dr Radha Krishna said, “Brain surgeries are complex and the protocol is to first opt for medicines. Nowadays due to diagnostic technologies, even the smallest of lesions or tumours are picked up but it is still important to treat them with medicines.”

Dr Sreekanth Reddy, senior neurosurgeon, said, “In the past few years, there has been an increase of four to six per cent in brain ailments. One of the most important factors which has come to light is the adverse effects of pesticides used on farm produce which causes haemorrhage and swelling of the brain.”
