CNS makes certain that you receive the neurosurgical opinions in Connecticut that you deserve. Neurological surgery is a discipline of medicine and that specialty of surgery which provides the operative and non-operative management of disorders of the central, peripheral, and autonomic nervous systems.
As such, neurological surgery encompasses treatment of adult and pediatric patients with disorders of the nervous system; disorders of the brain, disorders of the spinal cord, and vertebral column, including those which may require treatment by spinal fusion or instrumentation; and disorders of the cranial and spinal nerves throughout their distribution.
CT Brain Surgeon
Our CT brain surgeons have years of experience in treating many brain conditions. Cranial surgery pertains to procedures performed on or around the brain. Cranial surgery usually includes craniotomy, creating an opening in the skull through which to work, which is closed afterwards. The patient’s head is held rigidly in a dedicated unit that eliminates motion during procedure. The main purposes of cranial surgery are to treat:
CT Spine Doctor
Our CT spine doctors treat a variety of spine conditions. Surgery is performed on the spine for the purpose of decompressing nerves, stabilizing the spine or both. Herniated discs, degenerative spine disease, and spinal stenosis are entities that ultimately cause spinal nerves to be compressed, possibly causing pain, weakness, and sensory change. Trauma, tumors and severe degenerative spine disease can erode the supporting structures of the spine, rendering the spine unstable (unable to support the body or protect associated nerves).
