Unique Features
Stroke Management
  • We are fully prepared to prioritize patients presenting with stroke and remove the clot in the blood vessels to brain within 60 minutes of arrival (Mechanical Thrombectomy). This results in dramatic recovery of neurological function and markedly reduced hospital stay and complication.
Intracranial Aneurysm Treatments
  • Through small holes of a few millimeters in your blood vessel in your groin, the life threatening aneurysm in blood vessels around brain can be treated with coils, thereby avoiding all the risks of an open surgical procedure. Even large aneurysm can be treated with devices called “FLOW DIVERTORS” GKNM Hospital is one of few centers to have successfully carried out this procedure.
256 slice CT Scan
  • This is a “State of art” machine capable of scanning your heart in 3 beats. This is designed to scan with least amount of radiation and contrast dose.  The advantages can also be experienced while scanning of brain, chest and abdomen.
Radiation Safety
  • Whether it is a simple X-ray or Mammogram or CT Scan we have the latest equipment to deliver the lowest possible Radiation dose with optimal image quality. Protocols (doses) are individualized to every patient based on size and weight with special attention to childern.
