A brain haemorrhage can be a life-threatening event. However, it can be treatable, and with the use of modern surgical techniques recovery from treatment is now faster than ever. We asked leading neurosurgeon Mr Christos Tolias about what someone’s treatment options are if they have a brain haemorrhage.
Problems with the brain are always a worrying prospect. Our brains are, in a lot of ways, who we are, containing our memories and acting as the control centres of our bodies. A cavernoma is a condition of the blood vessels that can occur in the brain or spinal cord, and can even lead to bleeding in the brain. Are they serious? Leading neurosurgeon Mr Christos Tolias has the answers.
Spinal stenosis can leave a person with leg pain, tingling and a feeling of numbness. There is more than one type, which can affect different areas of the spine. Expert neurosurgeon Mr Christos Tolias discusses three types that affect the lumbar, the neck and the chest.
