Neurosurgery describes any surgery performed on the nervous system, especially the brain (to remove a brain tumour for example) and the spinal cord (to rectify severe back pain for example).
Neurosurgery services at London Bridge Hospital include the following specialities:
Operations for degenerative, disc and neoplastic disorders.
Sciatica and back pain
Neurological assessment, MRI scanning and treatment of sciatica and back pain.
Brain Tumour Biopsy
The removal of a small piece of brain tumour so that it can be examined under the microscope.
Brain Tumour Debulking
The volume of a brain tumour is reduced (debulked).
Shunts for Hydrocephalus (fluid on the brain)
Fluid is diverted from the head into another body cavity (typically the abdomen or chest) or within the brain.
Endoscopic Third Ventriculostomy for Hydrocephalus (fluid on the brain)
Fluid is re-routed within the brain allowing it to escape, thus relieving hydrocephalus.
