Finding a doctor is the most difficult job, a good doctor is the one who finds out the problem by complete diagnosis and suggests the best treatment without experimenting over the patient. There has been a lot of cases that came into the picture where the doctors did not understand the problem completely and without complete diagnosis started the treatment which resulted in adverse effects on the patients. Hence, people are now very skeptical when choosing a right doctor. We all know well that we have doctors who are specialized in different fields of medical, like for heart-related issue one has to consult a cardiologist, for kidney related problem we have nephrologists, for cancer one can consult an oncologist similarly for nervous issues we have neurologists.
Who is a neurosurgeon?
A neurosurgeon is a physician who is a specialist in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of nervous system, be it peripheral or central nervous system which includes tumors, traumas, vascular disorders, spine or brain infections. This is considered as the most difficult branch of medicine as it involves rigorous education and training along with completing MBBS and then completing the specialization in Neurology. Every hospital in India has a special department of Neurology where they hire the expert neurologists. In India, the national capital is the hub of top hospitals who have the top 10 neuro physicians in India. People from across the country visit these doctors to get the best possible treatment and medicines. It is quite a difficult job to be a neurosurgeon as human brain is the most important part of the human body which has a millions of very small veins and all of them are there performing some very important functions of the body hence the neurosurgeon has to be very careful before putting a single cut as even a single small cut can lead to major damages to the patient.
After a discussion with some of the best neurosurgeon doctor in India, we found that there are a lot of people suffering from brain related problems, be it just depression even that makes a serious problem. Some of the major nervous system disorders cured by a neurologist are
- Vascular disorders – these disorders include stroke, subarachnoid hemorrhage, transient ischemic attack (TIA), extraduralhemorrhage, subdural hemorrhage
- Structural disorders – brain or spinal cord injury, cervical spondylosis, brain or spinal cord tumors, Guillain Barre Syndrome, Bell’s palsy.
- Degeneration– this includes diseases like multiple sclerosis, Huntington’s Chorea, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis etc.
- Infections – meningitis, polio, epidural abscess, encephalitis.
- Functional disorder – headache, epilepsy, neuralgia and dizziness.
In the nervous disorders, it is quite difficult to start a treatment as this involves a lot of risks, before starting a treatment a complete diagnosis is a must. Many times, the procedure involves a lot of tests to ensure that there are no other conditions that might get affected by the treatment. Hence, a thorough diagnosis is very important in the case of neuro disorders.
