Neurosurgeons


What is neurosurgery?

Neurosurgery is a medical specialty that involves the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves. Although it is often referred to colloquially as “brain surgery”, it also covers spine surgery and both surgical and non-surgical care for the nervous system.
