Brain and Nerve Surgery
Brain and Nerve Surgery is the known field of specialization in which brain, nerve, spine, and spinal cord diseases are diagnosed and treated surgically or non-surgically.
There are many diseases that take part in the field of this specialty, known as neurosurgery, too. Although it is thought that neurosurgery dominates when it comes to brain and neurosurgery, also this department diagnoses and treats spinal cord, spine and nerve diseases.
Spinal Disc Herniation
The discs’ forms that act as a buffer between the vertebrae in the lumbar region are changed structurally because of sedentary life, excess weight, sudden movements, smoking, and alcohol use. Sometimes, these silicone-like discs which have got fill with a gel are spread out, and sometimes they burst and press on the nerves, too. Spinal Disc Herniation has some causes like severe pain and reduces the patients' quality of life. Spinal Disc Herniation is treated by neurosurgeons.
Cervical Disc Hernia
People who have cervical disc hernia, experience complaints such as severe pain, numbness, and weakness, resulting in increased pressure on the nerve roots with damage to the discs between the neck vertebrae and loss of function, just like in Spinal Disc Herniation. Cervical Disc Hernia can occur due to aging, inactivity, trauma and this problem is treated by neurosurgeons.
Cerebral Hemorrhage may occur due to structural disorders of the vessels, high blood pressure, diabetes, traumas, and vascular occlusion and should interfere with immediately. If not treated on time, determining how brain hemorrhages occur which can lead to death, will guide the treatment process.
In the trauma surgery in which emergency intervention is performed for back, neck, spinal cord and brain injuries that occur in people after accidents or blows; all the necessary treatments are applied for not occur a permanent problem to the patient. Complications experienced by traumatized people are minimized if timely intervention is made by people who are experts in their fields.
Hydrocephalus is known the increase in intracranial pressure due to the increase in the fluid volume in the brain. Symptoms are change from person to person and can be observed in any age group. Scientific studies are carried out to treat hydrocephalus with surgery.
Cerebrospinal Diseases are include some disorders such as arachnoid cysts, deformities in skull bones, congenital spinal malformations and encephalocele, which can be seen in newborn babies or children. Studies are carried out for the treatment of these diseases using surgical methods.
Spondylolisthesis – Calcification of Lumbar Region
There are different factors that can cause pain in the lumbar region. Patients who have lumbar region pain should be examined in detail and treated according to the identified problem. Spondylolisthesis occurs as a result of the skid of the spine and compression of the spinal cords. Spondylolisthesis reduces the patient's quality of life and causes pain, and this disease is required surgical intervention.
Calcification of Lumbar Region can be expressed as the wear and tear of the joints. Physical therapy is recommended primarily for patients whose movements are restricted.
