Neurosurgery is a medical speciality that deals with diagnosing and treating injuries and disorders of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. Neurosurgeons are trained in all aspects of neurosurgery, including the cerebrovascular system, the spine and spinal cord, trauma, tumors, pain management and paediatric surgery. Brain edema, seizures, postoperative hemorrhage, and cerebral ischemia can complicate neurosurgical procedures. There are many forms of neurosurgery including neurovascular surgery, key hole brain surgery, etc. Spine deformities can be treated by surgical methods. Spine deformities can be defined as the abnormality in formation, alignment and shape of the vertebral column. Spine stabilization surgery is recommended in cases where there is severe pain, neurological problems, or curvature greater than 50 degrees. The goal of surgery is to straighten spine. Several surgical techniques can be used, including spinal fusion (fusing the vertebrae together) and the use of implants to secure the fusion.
