What is neuro-endoscopic?

Postby Sick » Tue Jul 31, 2007 8:02 am

Hello everyone, I am sorry if I am posting this in the wrong section or forum, but I really need some responses concerning this please. I would like to know what Neuro-endoscopic means. I have been searching for it online on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endoscopic and http://www.jdhealthcare.com/brainspine.html#6 but on the first one, I didn't get what I was looking for and on the second website I only got this
The Neuro-Intensive care unit (ICU) at JD Healthcare's Hospital brings together specially trained personnel, sophisticated monitoring techniques, and specialized treatment modalities in a 24-hour monitored setting, all with the single goal of improving outcomes of patients with neurological diseases.

I have my best friend who is going to have this operation done and what I am seeking forward to know is whether this operation is safe and without risk? I have been asking him over and over again what he has got and he isn't willing to tell me. Please anyone, tell me what this is all about.

Well wrong section, yes.

But I'm sure the mods will move it.

You could try looking at various procedures at the Centre for Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery website. They have a section on Neuroendoscopy.

I have to warn you though that photos of the procedures are pretty graphic.. If that kind of thing disturbs you, I would just read the literature & avoid the procedure photos.
