Neurosurgery deals with the diagnosis and operative treatment of diseases, malformations and injuries of the central and peripheral nervous system. The central nervous system (CNS) includes the brain and spinal cord, and the peripheral nervous system, the nerve tracts that extend from the spinal cord to all parts of the body.
Nervous system disorders that neurosurgeons deal with include cerebral hemorrhages, vascular occlusions in the brain, tumors in the brain or spinal cord, spinal cord contusions due to tumors or herniated discs, traumatic brain injury, malformations of the nervous system, and hydrocephalus.
The neurosurgeons often also take care of functional disorders in the nervous system such as epilepsy, pain and movement disorders.
Last but not least, so-called psychosurgery also falls into their field of work: with reversible, non-destructive interventions on the brain, depression and obsessive-compulsive disorders in particular are attempted to be alleviated if they can not be adequately treated with medication. For example, patients are treated with a brain pacemaker. In the past, destructive interventions on the brain were also carried out for this purpose, ie, for example, certain nerve tracts were severed. This is no longer done today because the therapeutic success is very uncertain and serious complications may occur.
