Neurosurgery information and locations in Mexico

Doctor holding a brain x-ray
Neurology and neurosurgery is the field of medicine that diagnoses and treats those conditions or disorders that affect the nervous system; brain, spinal cord, and nerves. The nervous system is in charge of regulating and coordinating body activity. Neurology itself is a non-surgical specialty, so doctors need to take additional years of studies to become a surgeon.
A neurosurgeon can treat common conditions like back pain, migraines, epilepsy, and strokes, although it specializes in performing minimally invasive and complex surgeries in the brain and spinal cord. However, a neurosurgeon and neurologist often work together to help improve the patient’s quality of life.

Neurosurgery additional procedures information
Brain aneurysm repair
Brain aneurysm repair is a surgery employed to restore a bulging blood vessel in the brain after it has shown a risk of becoming raptured. An aneurysm occurs when the walls of a blood vessel have become weak or thin, leading to a risk of rupturing and causing bleeding on the brain. Neurosurgeons create an incision on the scalp and skull, just over the affected vein. Then, a metal clip is sealed on the blood vessel, preventing it from bursting.
Lumbar puncture
Also known as a spinal tap, this procedure is used to help diagnose epilepsy, meningitis, multiple sclerosis, or other disorders of the central nervous system. During the procedure, doctors inject a local anesthetic on the back and insert a needle between the vertebrae to extract a small sample of cerebrospinal fluid, which is then sent to the lab to be analyzed.
Chronic subdural hematoma
A chronic subdural hematoma (SDH) is a collection of old blood between the brain and outermost covering (the dura). Surgical treatment involves drilling small holes on the skull to help relieve the pressure and facilitate the drainage of blood and fluids. In larger blood cloths, or after a severe head injury neurosurgeons can opt to do a craniotomy.
Vertebral augmentation surgery
This procedure is used to relieve pain caused by vertebral compression fractures. There are two main minimally invasive procedures used to stabilize the spine and reduce the patient’s pain.
Vertebroplasty: This procedure consists of injecting bone cement into the fractured vertebral.
Kyphoplasty: Similar to vertebroplasty, this procedure restores the height and position of the bone. Then, a thicket bone cement is injected into the fractured vertebral.
