What is Neurosurgery?

Neurosurgery is a medical field of expertise which is related to the whole neurological system including all the nerves in the brain, spinal cord, back bone and all the other parts of the body (hands, legs, arms, face) and to the diagnose and treatment of the diseases in said system. 

INCA has been founded on the basis of discipline, persistance and harmony. In INCA, the diagnosis of such complicated diseases as the ones affecting the neurological system (brain, spinal cord and peripheral nervous system), non-surgery treatments and surgery operations are carried out by our young, dynamic expert teams with international experience. 

No Pain Is Permanent…

Almost %80 of adults faces with waist and neck problems at some point. Without any exception, anyone such as women, men, young or old people can be affected. 

All the possible reasons that could lead to waist and neck pains (hernia, infection, dislocation, tumor, arthritis, mechanical reasons etc.) are evaluated through a detailed neurological examination and advanced diagnosis tests. All patients are definitely diagnosed and accordingly, the most suitable alternative treatment is applied.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Who Sees a Neurosurgeon?

    You may need to see a neurosurgeon if you have been examined by a primary care physician and told that your symptoms are neurological in nature and require surgery. Your primary care physician will consult a neurosurgeon and schedule an appointment for an exam and possible tests. Once your exam and tests are completed, the neurosurgeon will work with you to determine the plan of care and schedule surgery if necessary.

    What do you see a neurosurgeon for?

    You will need a neurosurgeon if you are diagnosed (or suspected of being diagnosed) with certain disorders of the brain, spinal cord or peripheral nerves. The most common problems our patients have are brain tumors, blood clots, aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations, spinal problems and peripheral nerve tumors and entrapments. 

     

    What will a neurosurgeon do on first visit?

    You should expect that your neurosurgeon will get a detailed history, focused physical examination and review any imaging studies that have been done. Most neurosurgical conditions require imaging (e.g., MRI or CT) to be properly diagnosed. You should expect that your neurosurgeon will need imaging done prior to your first visit.

    What questions should I ask my neurosurgeon on my first visit?

    Do I need surgery? Are there other options such as medication, therapy or other treatment alternatives such as radiation or chemotherapy? What are the risks of treatment? What are warning signs that I should look out for that might make surgery necessary?

    What are the most common neurosurgery procedures?

    The most commons neurosurgical procedures are spinal surgeries for decompression and/or fusion. In the brain, the most common surgeries are for brain tumors and blood clots. However, many neurosurgeons specialize and focus on only a few areas or types of operations.

    Do I need spinal neurosurgery?

    Typically, spinal surgery is more urgent for patients who are at risk of losing neurologic function than for patients who have no weakness but have pain. Most patients with back and leg pain should first try non-surgical methods of treating their pain before surgery is considered.
