ABOUT
DR. SAI KALYAN

Dr. Sai Kalyan Savarapu is a dynamic and innovative Neurosurgeon with vast experience in the field of Brain and Spine Surgery. He started as a university topper in the Neurosurgery superspecialty entrance exam and was awarded the MCh degree after a successful residency programme at Gandhi Medical College, Hyderabad. He then set off to gain international experience in Spine Surgery at the prestigious Walton Centre of Neurology and Neurosurgery in Liverpool, United Kingdom. After this, he travelled to Japan to do a fellowship (WFNS Scholarship) in Cerebrovascular and Skullbase surgery at Fujita Health University, Nagoya, Japan.

After gaining insights and skills from the West and the Far East, he returned home to India to work as a senior resident at Gandhi General Hospital and later as a consultant at KIMS Hospital, Secunderabad, before joining as a senior consultant at AIG Hospital, Gachibowli, Hyderabad. In the last 11 years, he has successfully operated on several complex cases of Brain and Spine Surgery. In addition to his extensive clinical experience, he was also a faculty member for the National Board of Examinations (DNB). As a keen academic, he presented at national and international conferences, published articles in reputed national and international journals, and delivered guest lectures in many CME programmes.
 
Dr. Sai Kalyan’s post-qualification training and experience from working at varied centres allowed him to further advance his skills and knowledge in Surgeries. He has successfully operated on several complex cases of Brain and Spine Surgery. He independently performed around 3000 Surgeries, which include Surgeries for benign Brain Tumours, Malignant Brain Tumours, Stereotactic Biopsies for Brain Tumours, Robotic Biopsy, Surgeries for Brain Stroke and Vascular Surgeries (Aneurysm Clipping). Surgeries pertaining to head injuries and spinal injuries, such as extradural hematomas, subdural hematomas, and spinal trauma Surgeries. He has expertise in minimally invasive procedures for the Spine, Endoscopic surgeries, MicroVascular Decompression surgeries, Paediatric Neurosurgery, Laminectomies, Discectomies, Microdiscectomies and Skull Base Surgeries.

 

AREA OF EXPERTISE

 

He has worked with some of the most eminent Neurosurgeons in the world, some of whom are Prof. Yoko Kato, Prof. H. Sano, Prof. Zaid Sarsam, and Prof. Ajay Sinha.

Prof. Prakash Rao, Prof. Goto

  

In his 11 years of experience, he has gained a lot of expertise in surgery in areas that include:

  • Spine Surgery (Microscopic, Endoscopic and Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery)

  • Neuro-oncology (Brain and Spine Tumours)

  • Pituitary Tumours

  • Neuro-trauma (Brain and Spine Trauma)

  • Cerebrovascular and Skull Base Surgery

  • Stereotactic Procedures

NEUROSURGERY

  • Traumatic Brain Injury:

Our round-the-clock emergency and intensive care services will tackle acute traumatic brain injuries according to evidence-based protocols and ICP measurements.

  • Brain Tumours:

Malignant brain lesions can be treated with the aid of neuronavigation for precise localization and intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring for better functional outcomes followed by postoperative chemotherapy and radiotherapy for extended progression-free survival.Benign lesions can be easily treated by achieving complete resection.

  • Skull Base Tumours:

Complex skull base lesions can be treated by Endoscopic skull base and keyhole micro-neurosurgeries approach with minimal scarring.

  • Posterior Fossa Tumours:

Medulloblastomas, ependymomas and fourth ventricular lesions can be treated with a multidisciplinary approach.

  • CP Angle Lesions:

Cranial nerve monitoring helps achieve complete resections without causing permanent neurological deficits. Extremely painful conditions like Trigeminal neuralgia are treated with safe and effective microvascular decompression.

  • Intraventricular Tumours:

Colloid cysts, Choroid plexus tumours, and third ventricular tumours can be excised with the assistance of minimally invasive neuroendoscopy.

  • Vascular Lesions:

Complex intracranial aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations can be treated with tailored treatment plans based on individual patients.

  • Functional Neurosurgery:


Functional brain diseases like Parkinson's disease, movement disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, complex migraines, etc. can be treated with deep brain stimulation using cranial robotics and navigation.

 

  • Epilepsy Surgery:


Safe surgical treatment of many paediatric and adult drug-refractory epilepsies like Focal cortical dysplasia, Mesial temporal sclerosis, Rasmussen encephalitis, Hypothalamic hamartomas is done using intraoperative navigation and cortical EEG. Vagal nerve stimulations is also offered.

  • Paediatric Brain Disorders:

Congenital hydrocephalus, Macrocephaly, Craniosynostosis, Encephaloceles, and Chari malformations are treated with perioperative support from paediatricians and neonatologists.

  • Paediatric Neurosurgery:

Addresses special surgical problems in children involving the brain, spine, or peripheral nerves.
    

  • Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery:


Keyhole surgery is the concept of safely removing brain and skull base tumours through small, precise openings that leave a barely visible scar postoperatively. Our goals are to maximise tumours removal while avoiding complications, promoting a more rapid, complete, and less painful recovery.

  • Awake Craniotomy:


Surgery is performed on an awake patient, in order to preserve important functions like speech, motor function, and higher cognitive functions. The patient participates actively during surgery, while feeling absolutely no pain.

SPINE SURGERY

  • Minimally Invasive Spine Surgeries:

Degenerative Spine conditions

Many elderly and working adults suffer from degenerative cervical and lumbar disc diseases which can be managed conservatively with the assistance of well-trained physiotherapists who help in teaching neck exercises and back strengthening exercises. Chronic cases can be treated by minimally invasive spine surgeries with the assistance of the O-arm and navigation.

  • Complex Craniovertebral Junction Anomalies:

Congenital, traumatic, and infective/Inflammatory craniovertebral junctions anomalies causing upper or lower limb weakness, can be treated with transoral surgery or surgery through posterior approaches.

  • Spinal Tumours:

Spinal cord tumours can be excised safely with the help of neuromonitoring and neuronavigation.
   

  • Spinal Vascular Malformations:

Spinal AV fistulas and vascular malformations can be treated with endovascular embolisation or surgical excision of the vascular lesions.

  • Spinal Malformations in Children:

Developmental anomalies in babies can be managed with early corrective surgery so that lower limb weakness can be avoided.

  • Peripheral Nerve Surgery:

 

Brachial plexus injuries can be managed by novel techniques such as nerve transfer surgeries. Intractable pain following brachial plexus injury and spasticity can be managed with surgeries such as DREZotomy. Spinal cord stimulation can be done for failed back surgery syndrome, complex regional pain syndrome, and painful peripheral neuropathies.
