The nervous system is the most vital part of the human body. It is one of the most important as well as the complicated part. So any damage to this part may lead to crack down of movement and locomotion of a human body. But the patient can also overcome this disability through proper neurosurgery. As we all know a neurosurgeon is a person who performs neurosurgery. The different parts of the nervous system like an extra-cranial cerebrovascular system, brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves are where a neurosurgeon performs surgery.
A Neurosurgeon performs neurosurgery in the following areas:
This is an area in which surgery is performed for patients having the brain tumor, astrocytoma, glioma, glioblastoma multiforme, ependymoma, pontine glioma etc.
This kind of neurosurgery is performed for people who are affected or suffering from spinal fractures, spondylolisthesis, disc herniation, scoliosis, kyphosis and flat-back syndrome.
There is various type of seizures and epilepsy.This surgery is done for those patients who try to achieve better seizure control. That is for patients with movement disorders, epilepsy, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and certain chronic pain syndromes
Patients with neurotrauma, intracranial hemorrhage etc are sought for the treatment under the area of general neurosurgery.
Stroke is otherwise known as the brain attack. It is caused due to the lack of flow of blood to brain cells or interception in the flow of blood. Neurosurgery can be done for stroke not for all cases but for specific ones.
This is a situation in which the neurosurgeons perform surgery when an irregular connection occurs between the arteries and veins of a patient. This is the rarest condition and its common symptoms include dizziness, headache or seizure.
