Why Would I Need To See a Neurosurgeon?

How your neurosurgeon in Orlando, FL, can help you

Your nerves are an important part of your body. They help your body function. When you have nervous system problems, you need the expertise, skills, and knowledge of a specialist. You need a neurosurgeon. Dr. Max Medary at Greater Orlando Neurosurgery & Spine in Orlando, FL, provides a wide range of neurosurgery treatments and services to help you.

Your neurosurgeon is an expert at diagnosis and treatment of neurological conditions. A neurosurgeon is different than a neurologist because a neurosurgeon is also an expert at surgery involving the brain, spine, and nervous system.

Some of the reasons you might need to see a neurosurgeon are if you are experiencing:

  • Numbness or pain in your extremities that doesn’t go away
  • A reduction in grip strength in your hands and fingers
  • Frequent headaches which don’t go away quickly
  • Difficulty moving, loss of dexterity, or uncontrolled body movements
  • Seizures, convulsions, or loss of consciousness

Your visit to the neurosurgeon will include a comprehensive medical examination, including recording your signs and symptoms, any medications you are taking, recent illnesses, and hospitalizations. Your neurosurgeon may also order:

  • Imaging, including x-rays, MRI, PET and CT scans, EEG, or MEG
  • Lab tests, to check for underlying diseases which could cause your symptoms

A neurosurgeon can diagnose and treat acute and chronic conditions including:

  • Sciatica
  • Pinched nerves
  • Nerve-related chronic pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Nerve damage
  • Lower back and spinal pain
  • Stroke
  • Epilepsy
  • Concussion
  • Brain tumors
  • Trigeminal neuralgia

After diagnosis, your neurosurgeon may use several treatment types to help you. These include:

  • Minimally invasive surgery
  • Endoscopic surgery
  • Robotic microsurgery
  • Radiosurgery
  • Endovascular surgery
  • Open surgery

You need the services of an expert, your neurosurgeon, for treatment of nerve, spine, brain, and nervous system issues.
