Background information on Neurosurgery [When available]

Neurosurgery is the surgical discipline focused on treating those central and peripheral nervous system diseases amenable to mechanical intervention.

Neurosurgeons undergo a rigorous training program consisting of 6-7 years post-graduate study after medical school. This field of medicine is considered to be one of the most difficult and therefore one of the most prestigious.

Neurosurgical conditions include primarily brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerve disorders.

Conditions treated by neurosurgeons include:
  • Lumbar disc herniation
  • Cervical disc herniation
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Head trauma (brain hemorrhages, skull fractures, etc.)
  • Spinal cord trauma
  • Traumatic injuries of peripheral nerves
  • Brain tumors
  • Tumors of the spine, spinal cord and peripheral nerves
  • Cerebral aneurysms
  • some forms of hemmorrhagic stroke, such as subarachnoid hemorrhages, as well as intraparenchymal and intraventricular hemorrhages
  • Some forms of epilepsy
  • Some forms of movement disorders (advanced Parkinson's disease, chorea, hemiballism) - this involves the use of specially developed minimally invasive stereotactic techniques (functional, stereotactic neurosurgery)
  • Malformations of the nervous system
