The nervous system consists of the cerebellum, brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and cranial nerves. Thanks to the nervous system, many activities such as movement, learning, speech and sleep are carried out with impulses distributed throughout the body. Even the slightest damage to any part of the nervous system can lead to significant and potentially permanent problems, which can negatively affect our daily lives.
In cases that are not treated properly, more serious health problems can develop. For this reason, a specialist doctor should be consulted for all complaints involving the brain and other nerve structures.
Neurosurgery, also known as brain and nerve surgery, is the main branch of science that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases involving the brain, nerves and spine. Diseases such as lumbar and cervical hernias, head and spinal cord traumas, cerebral vascular occlusions, aneurysms, cerebral hemorrhages, especially the treatment of tumors in the brain and spinal cord tissue or compressing these tissues are followed and treated by neurosurgeons. Successful surgery and brain pacemaker operations in diseases related to movement disorders such as epilepsy and Parkinson’s, which do not benefit from drug treatment, improve the quality of life of patients.
Doctors with the title of neurosurgeon or neurosurgeon, which is obtained as a result of years of additional education, research and experience criteria on top of the general medical diploma, apply treatment using various surgical techniques to eliminate any damage to the nervous system.
