Most individuals confuse neurosurgery with brain surgery. But it covers so much more! It is a medical speciality that revolves around the diagnosis and care of patients suffering from injuries to or diseases/disorders of the brain, spinal cord, spinal column, and peripheral nerves in all parts of the body.
Adult and pediatric patients are also treated in the neurosurgical speciality. A neurological surgeon may provide surgical and/or non-surgical treatment, depending on the nature of the injury or disease you have.
So, let us discuss the concept of neurosurgery at first:
The medical specialty of neurosurgery (or neurological surgery) is concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and recovery of diseases affecting the entire nervous system. Your nervous system consists of your brain, spinal column, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and extracranial cerebrovascular system.
Neurosurgery is a subspecialty of surgery that deals with the brain and spinal cord. It is a highly specialized type of surgery that necessitates years of preparation as well as a high degree of precision and expertise of the surgeon.
