Doctors specializing in Neurology in India

Doctors for Neurology in India

A specific field of medicine dealing with the nervous system and its diagnosis including the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nervous system, and the cerebrovascular system is termed as Neurosurgery. A neurosurgeon has the ability to work off nervous system supporting structures.

Top Neurologists in India

Specializing in clogged arteries, head trauma, lower back pain, and birth defects, Neurosurgeons are much more than only being brain surgeons who have undergone intense training in neurology as an independent field and have a high surgical success rate. The affordable cost of the surgery in India with respect to other major countries of the world has led to an increase in national and international footfall.

Names like Dr.Mahesh Chaudhari, Dr. Keki Turel and Dr. Alok Sharma are known as veterans in the field of neurology with a work experience ranging from 25 to 40 years showcasing their expertise and curing patients with various neurological diseases.

While Dr. Chaudhari specializes in skull surgery and tumors, pituitary tumor surgery, Micro-vascular Decompression for cranial nerves in neuralgias, Preservation of Facial nerve and hearing in Acoustic Neuroma Surgery, Dr. Keki Turel has his expertise in  Micro-neurosurgery, cranial surgery, skull base surgery and spinal surgery. Dr.Sharma being one of the best spine surgeons is a writer for 14 books now holds more than 100 publications, organizing over 25 national and international conferences and fields of neurosurgery.
