The department is actively involved in academic activities for its residents. Professorial morning teaching rounds are conducted thrice a week. The biannual journal of Neurosurgery is published.

Our Motto is to train doctors in Neurosurgery at par with international standards and provide congenial environment for clinical research that will help future generations of Pakistan.

Average patients examined on each OPD day are 200-250 and nearly 80 patients on emergency days. 900-1000 elective and 800-900 emergency Neurosurgical operations each year. Apart from general Neurosurgical procedures, Western trained and qualified consultants have developed a niche for neurovascular work (Aneurysms /AVMs/ carotid endarterectomies), trans-sphenoidal, endoscopic surgery, trans-oral surgery, MRI guided stereotactic procedures and surgery for intractable epilepsy.

Our future plans are to establish Punjab Institute of Neurosciences (PIN) which will be the centre par excellence for innovation and technological advancement of Brain and Spine diseases.


Research work is going on in our department. Every year in Neurosurgical conference (NEURO CON) 3-4 research work papers per unit  are presented by the PGRís / SRís and APís.

Nationally, every year we make sure to publish our research work in the Neurosurgical Journals. Further the international research works are also going on in our department.

Our Department takes active participation in the PGMI annual symposium, paper presentations and poster presentations with distinctions achieved.

SRís APís and top residents are encouraged for the workshops nationally and internationally. Recently Endoscopic Skull base workshop and spinal workshop was attended by the PGRís SRís and other colleagues and certificates were awarded to them all.

Prof Khalid Mahmood, who has got training from US and UK for DBS surgery has started Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) surgery at LGH for those living with Parkinsonís disease, creating hope for such patients in Pakistan.

The DBS is a rare procedure not available in any other public sector hospital of the country.
The DBS is a procedure involving implantation of brain pacemaker, which sends electrical impulses through implanted electrodes to specific parts of brain (brain nucleus) for the treatment of disorders.

This kind of operation was usually complicated requiring seven to nine hours. Prof Khalid Mahmood said mostly patients belonging to Middle East and Saudi Arabia were being operated in Pakistan and this was a good news for the locals who earlier used to go abroad for programming after every three or four months.
