What is a Neurosurgeon?

Problems with the spine, brain, or nervous system (collectively, the central nervous system or CNS) are many and varied. Patients experiencing problems like movement disorders, chronic headaches, stroke, seizures, or spinal cord damage will often seek out the services of a neurologist to diagnose and treat them. When these problems are not able to be fixed with medical or non-invasive treatments, patients will typically need the services of a top neurosurgeon in London. Neurosurgeons are, in the simplest terms, brain surgeons. Fortunately, it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to find the best neurosurgeons in London – it’s easy with Doctify.

When to see a Neurosurgeon?

If patients have tumours, spinal cord damage, stroke damage, or other serious problems that will require brain or spinal cord surgery, the top neurosurgeons in London are the specialists who will perform those corrective procedures. They generally have incredibly extensive training, including regular college/pre-med, their medical degree, a surgical internship, an additional 5 to 7 years as a neurosurgical resident, and possibly a fellowship before they are free to practice on their own as neurosurgeons. Patients can rest assured when choosing a neurosurgeon in London from Doctify that they are getting highly trained experts who do nothing but these kinds of surgeries, procedures, and treatments. As one of the more complex surgical specialities, neurosurgery certainly has risks. However, if a neurologist or top neurosurgeon in London has determined that the best course of treatment is a surgical or invasive procedure, their body of experience and skill should be respected – it might just save your life!

What procedures can you find at a Neurosurgery clinic? 

  • Surgery For Sciatica
  • Surgery For Myelopathy
