Neurology Department

Neurology is the medical specialty that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of disease involving the central, peripheral, and autonomous nervous system, including their coverings, blood vessels, and all effector tissues, such as muscles.

Neurological disorders are disorders those that affect the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord), the peripheral nervous system, or the autonomous nervous system. Conditions treated by neurosurgeons include:

  • Spinal disc herniation
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Head trauma (brain hemorrhages, skull fractures, etc)
  • Spinal cord trauma
  • Traumatic injuries of peripheral nerves
  • Brain tumors
  • Infections and infestations
  • Tumors of the spine, spinal cord and peripheral nerves
  • Cerebral aneurysms
  • Some forms of hemorrhagic stroke, such as subarachnoid hemorrhages, as well as intraparenchymal and intraventricular hemorrhages
  • Some forms of pharmacologically resistant epilepsy
  • Some forms of movement disorders (advanced Parkinson's disease, chorea) - this involves the use of specially developed minimally invasive stereotactic techniques (functional, stereotactic neurosurgery)
  • Intractable pain of cancer or trauma patients and cranial/peripheral nerve pain
  • Some forms of intractable psychiatric disorders
  • Malformations of the nervous system
  • Carotid artery stenosis
  • Vascular malformations (i.e., arteriovenous malformations, venous angiomas, cavernous angiomas, capillary telangectasias) of the brain and spinal cord
  • Peripheral neuropathies such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Ulnar Neuropathy
  • Moyamoya disease
  • Congenital malformations of the nervous system, including spina bifida and craniosynostosis
