Neurosurgery is the medical specialty concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of disorders affecting any portion of the nervous system including the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and extra-cranial cerebrovascular system. Neurological diseases can impact the brain, spine, spinal cord, muscles, nerves, balance, speech and other senses. With more than 1,000 types of neurological diseases, specialization is vital for a correct diagnosis and treatment.
