Dr. Nihal Ahemad

Consultant Neurosurgeon

A neurosurgeon who has set sail in the deep waters of a very much evolving and no doubt,one of the most intriguing subspecialities of neurosurgery,what we call today functional neurosurgery. As a doctor, I want to make neuromodulation a reality in a low middle income group country like India,and bring newer technology to the underprivileged at affordable costs to make their quality of life better. I would love to call myself a student of neurosurgery forever and currently I am seeking to explore more avenues in this rapidly emerging field.
