Neuro Sciences
 
The World, as we perceive it, is the reflection of the surroundings in our brain. All of our personalities and thoughts are the sum total of interactions executed by the brain through a complex network of a wide variety of neurons traversing through spine to move all the muscles of the body. Surgical interventions of brain and spine are the most complex of all surgical disciplines of medical science. To treat diseases of Brain, Spine and Peripheral Nerves, Charnock Hospital has developed one of the finest technologically advanced centres in Eastern India. In this tertiary care centre of excellence, the division of Neurosurgery performs wide gamut of surgical interventions for the people across the society :
