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

The brain is the information center of the body and controls our movements and sensations, such as understanding and speech.

The spine

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.

Peripheral nerves

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.

Frequently asked questions

What is a brain tumor?
It is a mass of intracranial tissue that can be located both inside and outside the brain. Brain tumors can have different growth rates, which is what will determine their degree of benignity or malignancy.
What is a brain aneurysm?
A cerebral aneurysm is a dilation of an artery in the brain with a fragile wall and can present symptoms from rupture (intracranial bleeding) or from compression of neighboring structures. It may also be seen on neuroimaging.
What symptoms does a herniated disc usually produce?
It usually causes lumbago accompanied by sciatica.
What is a herniated nucleus pulposus?
It is a displacement of part of an intervertebral disc outside its place of origin, which can affect nerve roots of the limbs. It can manifest itself with pain or neurological deficit.
What is trigeminal neuralgia?
Trigeminal neuralgia, also called painful tic, is a chronic painful condition that affects the trigeminal, or fifth cranial nerve, one of the longest nerves in the head. The disorder causes extreme, sporadic, and sudden burning or shock-like facial pain that lasts from a few seconds to two minutes per episode.
