The department of Neurosurgery has remained a centre point of research in the country. There has been research on evidence based clinical practice and laboratory based work. The department has been involved with several multi-centric national and international studies.
Optic Nerve Injury
CV junction anomaly
Brachial plexus and Peripheral nerve injury
Evoked Potential studies
Laboratory based research
Neural transplant was developed as a national facility by DST (1984-1990),
Evoked potentials as diagnostic and prognostic tool,
Study of genetic and molecular aspect of glioma,
Study of cerebral blood flow using SPECT scan in brain tumor, minor head injury and craniostenosis
