Dr. A. LAKSHMIPATHI NEUROSURGICAL CENTRE has grown in the last 41 years to be one of the finest in the country, setting standards for other departments. It has become a tertiary referral centre, for complex cranial and spinal cases.


The department has a 20-bedded general ward with separate male and female wards and two intensive care units with monitors and ventilators. In addition, our special wards have been renovated lately (click for a tour of the department).


At the VHS, 2 dedicated operation theatres function five days a week, and are open 24 hours for emergencies with in house CT scan facilities. Trained theater staff, complete sets of microsurgical instruments, 2 Zeiss microscopes, endoscopes, CUSA and stereotaxy have made excellent modern neurosurgery possible.

Neurosurgeon…one who cannot afford a mistake



The basic concept of the department is that no patient is to be turned away because of financial consideration. This allows us to treat a great variety of patients from different strata of society. All welfare schemes, including CM fund, are accepted. Patients, who cannot afford are supported by our well wishers.
