What are the subspecialties in Neurosurgery?

The subspecialties in the field of neurosurgery are numerous. The following are some of the most popular subspecialties:

  • Spine surgery: This entails the surgical management of spinal disorders such scoliosis, spinal stenosis, and herniated discs. Pediatric neurosurgery is a specialization that focuses on surgically treating childhood neurological disorders.
  • Cerebrovascular surgery: In this specialization, aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations are only a few disorders that can impact the blood vessels in the brain.
  • Stereotactic and functional neurosurgery: This specialization deals with the treatment of conditions that impact the brain and nervous system as well as the treatment of conditions that influence brain function, such as movement disorders, epilepsy, and chronic pain.
  • Oncological neurosurgery: Surgical removal of brain tumors and other cancers that damage the nervous system is the focus of this subspecialty.
  • Skull base surgery: This specialization surgically treats disorders affecting the skull base, including meningiomas and pituitary tumors.
  • Neurotrauma and critical care: This specialization concentrates on the surgical management of critically ill neurosurgical patients as well as the surgical treatment of traumatic lesions to the brain and spinal cord.


Spine surgery:

At Medicana Hospitals, our spine surgery services are created to offer the best possible care and treatment for various spinal disorders. Our group of skilled neurosurgeons is skilled in treating a variety of particular conditions, including the following:

  • Herniated discs: This condition happens when a portion of the nucleus pulposus, the rubbery substance that cushions the spine's bones, bulges abnormally. Back discomfort, leg pain, and other symptoms from herniated discs may necessitate surgical repair.
  • Spinal stenosis: When the area surrounding the spinal cord narrows, pressure is placed on the nerves, which results in pain and other symptoms. Surgery may be required to release this pressure and address the symptoms.
  • Scoliosis is a condition that causes the spine to curve abnormally. More severe cases may benefit from surgery to straighten the spine and enhance posture and function, but milder cases may not need treatment.

At Medicana Hospitals, we employ the most cutting-edge methods and tools to guarantee the most outstanding results for our patients. Our staff will collaborate closely with you to create a treatment strategy that suits your particular requirements and objectives. Please get in touch with us if you or a loved one requires spine surgery for additional details or to make an appointment with one of our skilled neurosurgeons.


Pediatric neurosurgery:

We take great pride in providing children and teenagers with specialist pediatric neurosurgery services. Our expert neurosurgeons are committed to offering the best possible care and treatment for various pediatric neurological diseases.

Our pediatric neurosurgeons are skilled in treating a variety of ailments, including:

  • Brain tumors: Both benign and malignant tumors of the brain can develop in children. Our specialists can surgically remove these tumors, and we can also offer any necessary postoperative treatment.
  • Abnormalities of the spinal cord: Children may be born with spinal cord abnormalities, such as tethered cord syndrome, which can lead to issues with movement and feeling. Our staff is skilled in surgery to treat these anomalies and eliminate symptoms.
  • Hydrocephalus: When cerebrospinal fluid builds up inside the brain, it can pressure the area and cause damage. Our team has experience reducing this pressure surgically and enhancing symptoms.


Cerebrovascular surgery:

Our cerebrovascular surgeons have received training to treat a variety of disorders, including:

  • Aneurysms: These are vulnerable spots in a blood vessel's wall that can swell and rupture, resulting in bleeding inside the brain. Our team has experience doing surgical aneurysm repair or removal to stop more bleeding and enhance results.
  • Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs): These aberrant blood vessel clusters increase the risk of brain hemorrhage and can interfere with blood flow. Our staff is skilled in performing surgical AVM removal or repair to relieve symptoms and lower the chance of bleeding.
  • Carotid artery stenosis: This condition is brought on by narrowing or blockage of the carotid arteries, which provide blood to the brain. Our team is adept at surgically resolving this issue to increase cerebral blood flow and lower the risk of stroke.


Functional neurosurgery with stereotactic surgery:

Our functional neurosurgeons are trained to treat a variety of diseases, including:

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a surgical procedure that involves implanting electrodes in the brain to stimulate particular regions and lessen the symptoms of illnesses, including Parkinson's disease and essential tremor. The treatment combines electrical stimulation with brain imaging to pinpoint the precise parts of the brain that need to be treated.

A neurosurgeon will perform the treatment and make a small incision in the skull to place one or more electrodes into the brain. A device known as a pulse generator is implanted under the skin in the chest or belly, and the electrodes are attached to it. The electrodes receive electrical impulses from the pulse generator, stimulating particular brain parts to alleviate symptoms. DBS is frequently an outpatient procedure, necessitating no hospital stay. Within a few days of the treatment, most patients can resume their regular activities.

Our team of neurosurgeons at Medicana Hospitals is committed to offering the best possible care and treatment for DBS and other functional neurosurgery treatments. Please get in touch with us if you or a loved one is interested in DBS to treat a movement issue or another ailment to learn more and to make an appointment with one of our skilled neurosurgeons.

  • Stereotactic radiosurgery: This minimally invasive procedure uses high-energy radiation to target and eliminate aberrant brain cells, such as cancerous cells or cells responsible for seizures. Our team can use this method to treat a variety of diseases.
  • Peripheral nerve surgery: This procedure is used to treat problems like carpal tunnel syndrome and trigeminal neuralgia that affect the nerves not found in the brain and spinal cord. Our team is skilled at mending or removing damaged nerves to relieve discomfort. Movement disorders: Disorders in movement and coordination can be brought on by conditions like Parkinson's disease and essential tremors. Our group is adept in surgically implanting gadgets that can assist in controlling brain activity and easing movement problems.
  • Epilepsy: This disorder is characterized by repeated seizures that can have an impact on mental health and general well-being. Our team is skilled in performing surgeries to disconnect or remove the parts of the brain that cause seizures, which can help control or end seizures.
  • Chronic pain: Trigeminal neuralgia and complicated regional pain syndrome, among other conditions, can cause persistent, incapacitating pain. Devices that can help control pain signals and enhance quality of life can be surgically implanted thanks to the expertise of our team.


Oncological neurosurgery:

Among the particular services our oncological neurosurgeons offer are the following:

  • Brain tumor surgery: Our staff has experience performing surgery to remove a variety of brain tumors, including gliomas, meningiomas, and pituitary tumors. We employ the most cutting-edge methods and tools to guarantee the most outstanding results for our patients.

Skull base surgery:

Our skull base surgeons are trained to address a variety of particular problems, including the following:

  • Meningiomas: These benign tumors develop on the tissues enclosing the brain and spinal cord. To relieve symptoms and stop the growth of meningiomas, our team is competent at performing surgical removal.
  • Pituitary tumors: The pituitary gland, found near the base of the brain, can develop these tumors. These tumors may need surgical removal since they can interfere with hormone synthesis and create other symptoms.

These benign tumors, called acoustic neuromas, develop on the nerve that controls balance and hearing. Our team is proficient at surgically removing these tumors to preserve hearing and relieve other symptoms.
