Neurosurgery; Cerebrospinal and nerve surgery
Neurosurgery, in other words, brain and nerve diseases, treatment of tumors originating from or compressing the brain and spinal cord tissue, as well as head and spinal cord injuries, cerebral vascular occlusions and cerebral hemorrhages, especially lumbar and neck hernias, It is the branch of science that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases such as aneurysm. It is the department that intervenes with surgical methods in diseases affecting many vital functions such as narrowing of the neck vessels and diseases that develop during the formation of the nervous system in newborns, epilepsy that does not respond to drug therapy, and selected Parkinson’s cases.
Cerebrospinal and Nerve Surgery
The dictionary meaning of neurosurgery, which is derived from the words neuron and surgery, is “healing the nervous system wounds”. In the brain and nerve diseases clinic, the diagnosis and treatment of diseases seen in both adult and pediatric patient groups are performed. Physicians, who work in the field of science, where many advanced technology devices are used during surgical and microsurgical procedures, receive five or six years of specialty training after 6 years of medical school education. Doctors who are experts in the field of neurosurgery, in which the necessary diagnosis and treatment methods are applied by working with the departments of neurology, neuroradiology and neuroanesthesia, are called neurosurgeons or neurosurgeons.
Since cerebrovascular diseases, which are common in the society, are quite diverse, their diagnosis and treatment methods are also abundant. Generally, diseases frequently encountered in neurosurgery and situations that require intervention can be listed as follows:
- Stroke and paralysis due to cerebral vascular occlusion for various reasons
- Life-threatening aneurysms that appear in the form of bubbles in the brain vessel and sometimes accompanied by bleeding
- Cerebral hemorrhage in brain tissue and membrane
- Carotid stenosis, called carotid occlusion or narrowing
- Tumors in the brain and spinal cord
- Traumatic situations caused by accidents and injuries
- Waist and neck hernia
- Tumor and vascular diseases in pediatric patients, in other words
- Brain pacemaker applications for Parkinson's and similar patients
