“What is neurosurgery?” The answer to the question can be answered as it is the department that makes medical interventions possible for diseases such as vascular occlusions, injuries, lumbar and cervical hernias developing in the brain and spinal cord regions. In neurosurgery department, diagnosis and treatment procedures of people with nervous system-related diseases in different periods from childhood to adulthood are carried out.

The department deals with the treatment of damage and diseases that develop in the regions involving the brain and nervous system. The diseases that Büyük Anadolu Hospitals deal with are as follows:

  • Cranial hemorrhages
  • Cerebrovascular diseases
  • Brain tumours
  • Brain aneurysms
  • Lumbar, thoracic and cervical hernias
  • Various traumas
  • Brain and nervous system diseases in childhood
  • Deep brain stimulation
  • Hydrocephaly
  • Hypophysis tumours
  • Stroke
  • Spinal cord tumours
  • Scoliosis
  • Traumatic spine fractures

Childhood brain and neurosurgery, also known as pediatric neurosurgery, deals with brain and nerve diseases that occur from the time starting in the womb to the age of 18.

Some of these diseases are:

  • Spinal and spinal cord tumours
  • Collection of water in the brain (Brain edema)
  • Increased cerebrospinal fluid
  • Congenital cranial hemorrhages
  • Congenital nervous system disorders
  • Epilepsy and other movement disorders
  • Injuries involving the head and spine
  • Structural abnormalities of the skull
  • Structural abnormalities of the spine

  • Neural tube defects

The tests used for diagnostic purposes in the department of neurosurgery, are as follows:

  • Angiography (Imaging of the vessels)
  • Biopsy
  • Computed tomography
  • Brainstem auditory evoked response
  • Direct graphy (X-ray)
  • Discography
  • Doppler ultrasound
  • Electroencephalography (EEG)
  • Electromyography (EMG)
  • Visually evoked potentials (VEP)
  • Lumbar puncture
  • Myelography
  • Magnetic resonance imaging
  • Motor evoked potentials (MEP)
  • Somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP)

The types of surgeries performed in neurosurgery also vary depending on the disease, the localization of the disease and the surgeon's preferences. Generally applied surgical methods are as follows:

  • Open surgery
  • Endoscopic surgery
  • Functional interventional
  • Microsurgery
  • Percutaneous minimally invasive surgery
  • Stereotactic surgery
  • Stereotactic radiosurgery
