Neurosurgeons treat disorders of the nervous system, primarily brain and spinal cord, in which surgery is more effective than medical therapy. This would include certain cases of ruptured disc, herniated disc or arthritic spurs that compress the spinal cord or peripheral nerve roots, brain tumors, spinal cord tumors, and other types of conditions where surgery is the primary treatment of choice from minimally invasive procedures to traditional open surgeries.
