About Neurosurgery

Neurosurgery (also called neurological surgery) is deals with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of disorders that affect the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and the extra cranial cerebrovascular system.

Neurosurgery Treatment Procedure

There are various treatments for illnesses. The patient will be taken through some tests and procedures and the suitable type of treatment will be performed. The types of treatments are:

  • Bone scans – a test performed to find damage to the bones, findcancer that is spread to the bones, and see any infection and trauma to the bones
  • Cerebral angiograms – a type ofangiography that provides images of blood vessels in and around the brain
  • Computed axial tomography (CAT)scans– X-rayimages taken from different angles of the patient to produce cross-sectional images of specific areas
  • Computed tomography (CT) scans – X-rayimages taken from different angles of the patient to produce cross-sectional images of specific areas.
  • Electromyographyanelectrodiagnostictechnique to record and view the electrical activity produced by the skeletal muscles.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans – amedical imaging technique used in radiology to image the anatomy and the physiological processes of the patients body in health and disease
  • Myelograms – a type ofradiographic test to detect pathology of the spinal cord, including the location of a spinal cord injury, cysts, and tumors
  • Nerve conduction studies -a medical diagnostic test to evaluate the function and ability of the electrical conduction, motorand sensory nerves
  • Positron emission tomography (PET) scans – is anuclear medicine, functional imaging technique that produces a 3D image of functional processes in the body
  • Single photon emission (SPECT) scans – is anuclear medicine tomographic imaging technique that uses gamma rays
  • Somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs) – is anoninvasive technique used to assess the somatosensory system functioning

Suitable Patients for Neurosurgery Treatment

  • Patients who suffer from any of the above illnesses
  • Both male and female patients
  • Patients at any age range

Before Neurosurgery Treatment

  • Patients will undergo many tests and procedures
  • Patients may need to start medication treatment before any surgical treatments
  • Patients must quit smoking and alcohol a week before treatments

After Neurosurgery Treatment

  • Patients may need to have medication treatment after surgical treatments
  • Patients may need to stay in hospital for a few days if surgery is performed
  • Patients will need to keep a healthy diet
  • Patients will need to keep at a healthy weight
  • Patients may need other treatments for the prevention of illnesses

Risks of Neurosurgery Treatment

Like every treatment there is a risk of complications to occur such as:

  • Infection
  • Allergic reaction to materials used
  • Bleeding

Trip Schedule of Neurosurgery

The patient will attend a consultation and the treatment process will start. The patient will need to undergo certain tests and procedures for diagnosis. Once the procedure is done, the most suitable treatment will be performed. Depending on the treatment to be performed the patient will be informed and will need to attend a few more appointments. If patient has undergone surgery, they will be taken to a private room and need to stay in hospital for 3 to 4 days.

Notes

• Trip schedule may vary. medicTurkey patient relations will provide you a detailed trip schedule before the travel.
