There are numerous types of brain surgery. The type used is based on the area of the brain and the condition being treated. Advances in medical technology have enabled surgeons to operate on portions of the brain without a single incision in or near the head.
Brain surgery is a critical and complicated process. The type of brain surgery done depends highly on the condition being treated. For example, a brain aneurysm can be repaired using a catheter that’s introduced into an artery in the groin. If the aneurysm has ruptured, an open surgery called craniotomy may be used. Surgeons, while being as careful and thorough as possible, treat each surgery on a case-by-case basis.

If you have a problem that can be physically corrected, such as a herniated disc, spinal stenosis or spondylolisthesis, surgery is an option worth considering – particularly when more conservative treatments fail to relieve your pain. To treat other problems, such as a serious infection or tumor, surgery may be a medical necessity.

Peripheral Nerve Surgery
The peripheral nervous system consists of all the nerves that are outside of the brain and the spinal cord: the nerves in your arms and legs, in your face, and in your chest and abdomen. Whether caused by injury, surgery, or conditions such as diabetic neuropathy, damage to the peripheral nerves can lead to chronic pain that is difficult to diagnose and find solutions to treat.

- Carpal Tunnel Release
- Spinal Cord Injuries
