Neuro and Spine Surgery

Neuro and spine surgery are surgical subspecialties that focus on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of conditions affecting the nervous system and spine.

Neurosurgery involves the surgical treatment of conditions affecting the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. This includes the diagnosis and treatment of conditions such as brain tumors, spinal cord injuries, aneurysms, and herniated discs. Neurosurgeons may also perform procedures such as deep brain stimulation for movement disorders, epilepsy surgery, and spinal fusion surgery.

Spine surgery focuses specifically on the surgical treatment of conditions affecting the spine, including degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, and herniated discs. Spine surgeons may use a variety of techniques, including minimally invasive surgery, to treat these conditions and relieve pain and improve mobility.

Both neurosurgeons and spine surgeons work closely with other healthcare professionals, such as neurologists, pain management specialists, and physical therapists, to provide comprehensive care for patients with neurological and spinal conditions. These surgical subspecialties require extensive training and expertise, and patients should carefully consider their options and work closely with their healthcare team to determine the best course of treatment.
