Neuroablative surgeries

Where the part of brain responsible for the above mentioned pathologies is ablated (destroyed) in order to achieve clinical relief. E.g. Radiofrequency ablation of the part of globus pallidus, Thalamotomy etc.

NeuroAugmentive surgeries

In this, part of the brain responsible for abnormal functions is modulated by implanting electrodes and adjusting its electrical activities. This is a non-destructive surgery. E.g. Deep brain stimulation for controlling the symptoms of Parkinsonism.

Microvascular decompression

Of facial nerve for hemifacial spasms not controlled with medications.
