Neurosurgery is the medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis and treatments of the brain, spine, and peripheral nerves. Despite being a fundamentally surgical discipline, neurosurgery requires knowledge of neurology, radiology, critical care, and trauma care. A significant number of patients seen by the neurosurgeon are managed with a nonsurgical approach.
Neurosurgeons manage a diverse group of conditions. They treat a wide range of abnormalities that can include congenital anomalies, tumors of the nervous system, neurovascular disorders, seizure conditions, infections, traumatic brain injury and abnormalities of the aging population such as stroke, functional disorders, and degenerative diseases of the spine.
At NYSI, we are proud to be the only independent, orthopedic Spine and neurosurgical practice in New York. What does this mean for our patients? Research has found that surgeries performed by both a neurosurgeon and an orthopedic surgeon, patients were less likely to develop major complications and have the highest level of successful surgical outcomes.
