Neurosurgery addresses issues of the brain and nervous system by removing tumors or reducing their size via incisions, by aiding in reducing symptoms of brain and spinal tumor patients, and by serving other functions in the treatment of these tumors. Neurosurgery is also used to obtain biopsies from the brain and spine tumors prior to treatment.
The diagnosis of a brain tumor will be a life-changing event. It is important to find a surgeon with technical expertise and extensive experience in successfully treating these disorders. You should not have to wait long for an appointment, and in some cases you should be seen as soon as possible.
