Tumor is an abnormal growth of cells and can found in any part of the body. The pituitary is a small gland within the skull, beneath the brain, and over the nasal passages and are on top of the fleshy back part of the roof of the mouth.
The pituitary tumors start in the front part of the pituitary gland or anterior pituitary. These glands make the hormones that manag
A stroke happens when the blood supply to the brain is disturbed due to ruptured or blocked blood vessel and force brain tissues and cells to destroy. It is a medical emergency condition and requires immediate treatment. Delay in the treatment may cause permanent disability or even death. Hold back in the treatment may cause permanent disability or even death. It is vital to understand and diagnose the stroke symptoms and provide appropriate treatment as soon as possible. Center for Brain and Spine Chennai, Tamil Nadu has all the treatment facilities to treat stroke with experienced staff to handle the case effectively.
Epilepsy is a CNS (Neurological) condition that affects the brain activity. It causes seizures, temporary episodes of twitching with convulsions. A Seizure is caused when the brain’s electrical impulses act abnormally and pass irregular signals. Sometimes the person may experience loss of consciousness. But, pin pointedly epilepsy can be defined as “two or more unprovoked seizures”.
The head injury is considered as the trauma to skull, scalp or brain. It can also be the minor bump on the skull which requires head injury treatment. It can be either open or closed.
Head injury consists of:
Wounds in the scalp

The spine is commonly known as backbone which is formed with 33 individual bones stacked one on top of the other. The spinal column provides the main support for the body, allowing to stand, upright, bend and twist at the same time it is protecting the spinal cord from injury. The spine is divided into three regions called cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine.

What is Brain Tumor?
The accumulation of abnormal cells causes tumor. Normally the cells die after some time and will be replaced by new cells but in the case of tumors, the cells won’t be replaced and ends up in the accumulation of unwanted cells. Primary brain tumor is a tissue mass which begins in the brain tissue. If a cancerous tumor starts elsewhere in the body and spreads to brain it is called secondary brain tumor.
Backbone or spine is considered to be the most important part of the body. It has five regions namely cervical, thoracic, lumbar, sacrum and coccyx. Dislocation or defects of the spine cause back pain.
The presence of tumours, especially in the brain area, has often been considered with a lot of dread. This is because of the complexity of the treatment and its effect on our central nervous system. However, with the advent of modern technology and minimally invasive techniques, the procedures have been made more simple, accurate and successful.
Endoscopic skull base surgery is one such minimally invasive surgical procedure now preferred for the treatment of skull base tumours.
