Special Correspondent

VIJAYAWADA: The use of neurosurgical microscopes that magnify the image have drastically reduced the scope for error and failure in neurosurgery, according to N.V. Srinivasa Rao, neurosurgeon and managing director of the 100-bedded Metro Superspeciality Hospitals, which will be inaugurated on Wednesday.

Addressing a press conference here on Monday, Dr. Srinivasa Rao, who trained in Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences and Technology, Thiruvananthapuram, and Christian Medical College, Vellore, said the new hospital had acquired a Moller-Wedel neurosurgical microscope, which, he claimed, was the first in coastal Andhra.

Neurosurgical microscope had made a vast difference to the field of neurosurgery. Neuro-physician M. Madhusudhana Rao said the latest techniques in the surgical treatment of epilepsy would also be made available to patients at the hospital. Special care could also be provided to patients with neuro-gynaecological problems. Gynaecologist N. Venkataramani said women suffering from bladder control problems would find respite at Metro Superspecialities Hospital.

The five-storey building housing the hospital was located in the heart of the city opposite Pramodini Diagnostic Centre. Joint Collector Gaurav Uppal, a doctor of medicine, will inaugurate the hospital on Wednesday.
