Brain, Spinal, and Nerve surgery are called Neurosurgery in medicine.
Surgical interventions for physical impairments in our nervous system, which makes up the communication mechanism of our bodies, are within the scope of neurosurgery. Cervical and lumbar hernias, that are among the common disorders, are the most common use of neurosurgery.
Private Çapa Hospital carries out nerve system operations by utilizing the microsurgery method in the neurosurgery department.
Disorders where microsurgery is utilized:
- Neck hernia (microdiscectomy)
- Hand-wrist disease.
- Other nerve impulses,
- Cerebral hemorrhage and coma after an accident.
- Brain tumors.
- Spine fractures caused by accident and other factors.
- Bleeding due to an aneurysm (vasculitis).
- Brain Neoplasms.
- Congenital water accumulation in the brain and spinal cord disorders.
It is the nerve compression in the spinal cord with the tearing of cartilage between the spine. It causes severe back pain. Then the pain will reach to the feet. In case the expected results cannot be achieved with resting and painkillers, then hemiplegia may occur, which will disturb the quality of life. In such cases, positive results can be achieved with the early intervention by applying microsurgery and the patients can return to their lives back in a short time. Permanent pain and paralysis may occur in case of late intervention. A patient who will have a herniated disk operation in the morning can return to his house back in the evening thanks to the technology we benefit. Patients can return to their work in two weeks, at most.
It is the tearing and nerve compression that occurs on the neck part of the spine. It reveals itself with arm and neck pain. It may occur in both of the arms or legs and patients may be dependent on the bed. In case the treatment will not be enough, which is wearing a neck protector and taking drugs, then operation with microsurgery will be needed. The patient can return to his work back in 10 days since this operation has a shorter recovery time.
It reveals itself with numbness and pain in the hands and arms of middle-aged women who especially worked a lot by using her wrist power. In general, it is experienced during the nights and you can experience it during the daytime if the disease is progressed. The reason for the disease is the nerve compression in the hand-wrist canal. The disease can be fully treated with a short surgical procedure with local anesthesia and there is no need to stay in the hospital.
The treatment of the disorders, that need surgical intervention and has results that affect the quality of life due to the deformations in the nervous system, is achieved by a full team work. Knowledge of neurological physiotherapy and brain surgeon specialists are used in these operations. The goal of brain tumor, spinal cord tumors and spinal fractures and other treatments is returning the patient to his daily life as soon as possible. For this reason, all kinds of rehabilitation services are offered after the surgery. You are not going to even feel that you had an operation with microsurgery. Keep in mind that you are never late. However early diagnosis and early intervention provide more successful results.
