Neurosurgery is used to treat problems in the nervous system. While many people refer to neurosurgery as brain surgery, it can encompass much more. Neurosurgery is used for surgeries of the brain, spine and peripheral nerves and can treat conditions such as stroke, tumors, aneurysms, epilepsy and more.
There are many forms of neurosurgery available to patients of all ages. When appropriate, neurosurgeons will use endoscopic surgery, which means a minimally invasive procedure. A common example of this is the Gamma Knife procedure, which is a pain-free, incision-free, and requires no recovery time.
With more than 600 diseases of the nervous system, there are also hundreds of different types of neurosurgery procedures. These range from simple to extensive. Your neurosurgeon will discuss specific surgery options with you, based off further details of your condition.
