What is Neurosurgery?
It is the specialty of medicine that is dedicated to the study and treatment of injuries and diseases of the brain, the spinal column and the peripheral nerves.
The brain is the information center of the body and controls our movements and sensations, such as understanding and speech.
It is formed by vertebrae i discs. The latter are softer and smaller than the vertebrae and are located between them, which allows the mobility of the spine.
Nerves pass between the vertebrae and go to the arms, chest, abdomen, pelvis and legs to transmit messages from the brain and send the return messages.
These nerves are like electrical wires that they transmit information from and to the brain. They carry information from the eyes, ears, face, arms, legs and the rest of the body to the brain.
They also receive commands from the brain and carry them out reach the muscles of the face, arms, legs and the rest of the body, which allows us to speak and move.
