General neurosurgery is concerned primarily with the prevention, diagnosis and surgical treatment of disorders which affect any portion of the nervous system including the brain, spinal cord, central and peripheral nervous system, and the cerebrovascular system.
Minimally invasive spine surgery refers to any surgical procedure that is performed through tiny incisions instead of a large opening. Because your neurosurgeon will make smaller incisions, you will likely have a quicker recovery time and less pain than traditional open surgery but with the same benefits as traditional surgery. The goal of minimally invasive spine surgery is to stabilize the vertebral bones and spinal joints and/or relieve pressure being applied to the spinal nerves — often a result of conditions such as spinal instability, bone spurs, herniated discs, scoliosis or spinal tumors.
