Neurosurgery is surgery of the nervous system.
Most people think of neurosurgery as brain surgery — but it is much more!
It is the medical specialtyv concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of patients with injury to, or diseases/disorders of the brain, spinal cord, spinal column, and peripheral nerves within all parts of the body. The specialty of neurosurgical care includes both adult and pediatric patients. Dependent upon the nature of the injury or disease a neurological surgeon may provide surgical and/or non-surgical care.
A physician who specializes in neurosurgery. Neurosurgeons are not just brain surgeons, they are medically trained neurosurgical specialists who can also help patients suffering from back and neck pain as well as a host of other illnesses ranging from trigeminal neuralgia to head injury and Parkinson’s disease.
