What is Neurosurgery?
Neurosurgery is a surgical specialty that provides surgical options to address conditions affecting the central and peripheral nervous system. The central nervous system in humans comprises of the brain (together with the nerves existing from it) and spinal cord. Whereas the spinal nerves arising from the cord and traveling out from there represent the peripheral nervous system.  Additionally, neurosurgery also addresses issues concerning the skull and spine, and dealing with them surgically.
Who and when should seek help?
Those afflicted by conditions such as neurotrauma ( head and spine trauma ), neuro-oncological diseases i.e. brain and spine tumors, neurovascular disorders ( brain haemorrhages or bleeding strokes, aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations), degenerative diseases affecting the spine and discs, neuro-infections and paediatric neurological conditions.
What are the treatments and surgical procedures offered?
Neurosurgery employs open surgical techniques called craniotomies, open and minimally invasive spinal procedures and neuroendoscopes  to treat those conditions described above.

To perform them, the neurosurgeon uses a high powered microscope and microinstruments at his disposal to perform various procedures ranging from tumor excisions (cranial and spinal ), haemorrhagic strokes, aneurysms and AVM surgeries, neuroinfections, adult and paediatric conditions requiring CSF shunting procedures and neurotrauma.

Additionally, he also employs neuroendoscopes for certain conditions that are deemed appropriate for their use. Spinal conditions requiring surgery, for instance degenerative diseases of the spine, are also performed by the neurosurgeon. Pain related issues arising from spinal degenerative diseases are also seen and suitably treated using radiofrequency techniques by the neurosurgeon here.
