Neurosurgery Encompasses Far More Than the Brain

Neurosurgery is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of the entire nervous system, composed of the brain and its vascular supply including the carotid arteries, spinal cord and spinal column, as well as peripheral nerves.

Neurosurgeons are more than just brain surgeons. These medical specialists are trained to help patients with head and spine trauma, cerebrovascular disorders, such as aneurysms of the brain and clogged arteries in the neck that can lead to stroke, spinal disorders such as herniated discs in the back and neck, birth defects, brain and spinal tumors, and abnormalities of the peripheral nerves.
