    Know Your Neurosurgeon

    A neurosurgeon, referred to as a brain surgeon, is a healthcare professional who is an expert in the surgical treatment of nervous system illnesses or problems.

    The nervous system is made up of three parts: the brain, the spine, and the spinal cord. A neurosurgeon's usual treatments include cerebral aneurysms, benign or cancerous brain and spinal tumours, and brain or spinal cord injuries.

    They also conduct operations that require individuals to undergo rehab following surgery. The evaluation and rehabilitation of patients with neurological problems are assisted by neurosurgeons.

    They also conduct operations that require individuals to undergo rehab following surgery. The evaluation and rehabilitation of patients with neurological problems are assisted by neurosurgeons.

    As a part of a team, a neurologist collaborates with other doctors and healthcare providers. Neurosurgeons are distinct from neurologists in that they undergo specialised training and certification in the use of surgical procedures, whereas neurologists place more emphasis on other kinds of treatment.

    Neurosurgeons conduct a wide range of tasks in addition to surgery since they are specialists in the human neurological system. For instance, various medical professionals, including emergency room physicians and neurologists, frequently consult neurosurgeons about their cases.

    Surgical procedures undertaken by a neurosurgeon

    Depending on the section of your nervous system that is damaged or the surrounding tissues and structures, a neurosurgeon may conduct a variety of operations using different methods. Here are some of the common surgical procedures performed by a neurosurgeon:

    Peripheral nerve surgery

    •  Ulnar nerve release:Ring and little finger paralysis result from ulnar nerve compression. An ulnar nerve release (surgical procedure) should prevent long-term nerve damage while potentially improving your symptoms.
    • Carpal tunnel release:Carpal tunnel syndrome is surgically treated with carpal tunnel release. The strain on the median nerve at the wrist can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome, which causes pain and numbness in the hands.
    • Vagus nerve stimulation:A medical procedure called vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) involves sending electric signals to the vagus nerve. For some forms of uncontrollable epilepsy and treatment-resistant depression, it is used as an adjunctive therapy.

    Brain surgery

    •  Cerebral thrombectomy:A procedure in which a blood clot removed from a vein or an artery in the brain is known as a thrombectomy.
    • Brain aneurysm repair:The surgery performed to treat an aneurysm inside or surrounding the brain is known as brain aneurysm repair.
    • Brain tumour surgery:A craniotomy is the procedure used most frequently to remove brain tumours. This treatment consists of making a cut in the scalp and extracting a section of the skull's bone so that the neurosurgeon has access to the tumour.

    Spine surgery

    •  Stereotactic spine radiosurgery:A novel, non-invasive therapeutic approach including both benign and malignant tumours on the spine is stereotactic spine radiosurgery (SRS).
    • Laminectomy:Back surgery called a laminectomy is performed to release pressure on the spinal cord. The lamina will be removed by your doctor during the operation.
    • Diskectomy: The damaged portion of a disc in the spine, which has its soft centre emerging through the thick outer coating, is removed during a diskectomy procedure.

    Which neurological conditions can be treated by a neurosurgeon?

    A neurosurgeon may treat a variety of neurological diseases, including the following:

    •  Carpal tunnel syndrome:Because of strain on the median nerve in the wrist, carpal tunnel syndrome produces discomfort, itching, and numbness in your hands.
    • Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak::A CSF leak occurs when the meninges, the membranes that cover the brain, rupture or develop holes from where the CSF might leak out.
    • Parkinson’s disease:Parkinson's disease affects the neurological system as well as the areas of the body that are regulated by the nerves. It is a progressive sickness.
    • Epilepsy:A brain illness called epilepsy is characterised by recurrent seizures. Typically, a seizure is characterised by a rapid change in behaviour.
    • Hydrocephalus:The abnormal build-up of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) inside the ventricles of the brain causes hydrocephalus.
    • Sciatic nerve:Sciatica is the discomfort or pain that results from a squeezed or strained sciatic nerve.
    • Brain tumour:Children and adults both can develop cancerous or non-cancerous brain tumours.
    • Chronic pain:Every part of the body can experience chronic pain, which can last months or years. It disturbs daily life and may cause depression and anxiety.

    Why would I need a neurosurgeon consultation?

    If you suffer from a neurological disease that necessitates or would receive support from an extensive assessment, your primary medical professional or your neurologist will advise you to take a neurosurgeon consultation.

    Your brain, central nervous system, peripheral nervous system, and spine, as well as the illnesses that can hinder them, are the areas of expertise for neurosurgeons.

    It's not always a sign that surgery is likely to occur just because your doctor advises you to see a neurosurgeon.

    For these reasons, a neurosurgeon consultation is important.
