The medical specialty of Neurosurgery focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and rehabilitations of injuries, diseases, and disorders of the brain, spinal cord and spinal column, and peripheral nerves within all parts of the body.
A Neurosurgeon is a medically trained specialist in Neurosurgery, who performs a thorough examination of the neurological structure of the body to diagnose the ailment or injury of the nervous system. Based on the nature of the injury or disease, the surgeon decides to perform surgery, and/or treat the condition with non-surgical care.
The Neurosurgeon has the required expertise in performing surgery on the brain, spinal cord, and nerves.
Because of its expansive range, Neurosurgery is divided into different types, including General Neurosurgery and some other specialised branches.
- General Neurosurgery: Neurological trauma and neurological emergencies
- Vascular and Endovascular Neurosurgery: Diagnosis and treatment of aneurysms, carotid stenosis, strokes, vasospasms, and spinal malformations by using minimally invasive techniques
- Spinal Neurosurgery– This involves the treatment of disorders affecting the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spines, including arthritis in the spinal discs, spinal cord compression caused by trauma, or spondylosis.
- Peripheral Nerve Surgery– Common peripheral nerve surgeries include carpal tunnel decompression for the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome as well as peripheral nerve transposition
- Stereotactic, Functional, and Epilepsy Neurosurgery
- Oncological Neurosurgery
- Skull-base Surgery
- Paediatric Neurosurgery
Neurosurgery is performed to treat and manage a wide range of diseases and injuries, such as, spinal cord injuries, head & spine injury, brain and spinal cord tumors, traumatic brain injuries, stroke (cerebral hemorrhage), degenerative diseases (neck pain & low backache), epilepsy, cerebrovascular conditions, nerve entrapment (carpal tunnel syndrome) among others.
Most Neurosurgery procedures are extremely complex. It usually takes at least 4 to 8 weeks to completely recover after a brain surgery. Pain at the incision point may last at least for 5 to 7 days after the surgery.
Whether or not you are considering a surgery for a suspected condition, it is always better to consult a Neurosurgery Specialist, once you start experiencing the symptoms. Different neurological conditions may have separate set of symptoms.
Some of the common symptoms may include, frequent headaches, nausea and vomiting, nerve pain, back/Low-back pain, leg pain, neck pain, inhibited nerve function, fits, motor and sensory symptoms, loss of balance, involuntary movements.
