Neurosurgery is a surgical specialty for the treatment of diseases and disorders of the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral and sympathetic nervous system.
Most student thinks of neurosurgery as brain surgery; but it is much more! It is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of patients with injury to, or diseases /disorders of the brain, spinal cord and 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/disorder a neurological surgeon may provide surgical and/or non-surgical care. Thus, this field of medicine can be defined as surgical neurology, as well.
Main fields of surgical neurology:
neurotraumatology; neurooncology; vascular neurosurgery (cerebrovascular diseases) dealing with subarachnoid haemorrhage, aneurysms, or another vascular malformations; intracerebral haemorrhage and occlusive cerebro-vascular disease.
Infectious diseases of the skull, brain and spine: abscesses, infections, postoperative inflammations.
Spinal neurosurgery: degenerative diseases of the spinal column, spinal canal stenosis. Diseases of the craniocervical junction (neuro-orthopedics).
Developmental disorders such as hydrocephalus, spinal dysraphism, etc.
Functional neurosurgery treating intractable pain, epilepsy and movement disorders
