Christian Medical College is a multidisciplinary, 750 bedded Health Care & Trauma Center .Neurosurgery was started in Christian Medical College (CMC) and Hospital Ludhiana in 1960.This was the first neurosurgical centre in this region. At present there are four neurosurgeons working in the department. The Christian Medical college & Hospital, Ludhiana, Neurosurgery Department provides a comprehensive in-patient and out-patient neurosurgical service, treating the full range of intracranial and spinal disorders. The unit treats around 1200 in-patients annually with around 50% being elective and 50% emergency. Trauma accounts for approximately 50% of the caseload. Institute has got the state of the art Emergency & Trauma centre, centrally air conditioned facility includes a code room for the critically ill and unstable patients with all facilities for stabilization. The main area of the centre is the resuscitation room where majority of patients are received and treated. The room has twelve beds with the state of the art monitors and equipment required for resuscitation and stabilization. There is a separate room for burn patients which is adequately equipped for monitoring and resuscitation. Burn patients are directly received there and treated. A separate room for emergency paediatric patients, a suturing room for a plastic surgery patients and a plaster room for orthopaedic patients with round the clock back up of Radiology and Laboratory services. Emergency department caters to about 16000 patients annually. We have well established outpatient service, seeing 3000 outpatients per year. The Neurosurgery Department has developed sub-specialty interests in cerebrovascular surgery, spine surgery, skull base surgery, pituitary surgery and Neurotrauma. We are committed to providing excellence in neurosurgical care through quality management, education and training of health care professionals.

 

SPECIFIC AREAS OF WORK
