Neurosurgical Diagnoses

Brain Tumors is an intracranial solid neoplasm, a tumor (defined as an abnormal growth of cells) within the brain or the central spinal canal.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a progressively painful hand and arm condition caused by a pinched nerve in your wrist.

Cerebral Venous Angioma also referred to as a "developmental venous anomaly" (DVA) or sometimes "venous malformation" is an extreme variation of veins draining normal brain tissue in that region.

Chiari Malformation is a malformation of the brain. It consists of a downward displacement of the cerebellar tonsils through the foramen magnum (the opening at the base of the skull).

Degenerative Disc Disease is degeneration of the intervertebral disc of the spine, often called "degenerative disc disease" (DDD) or "degenerative disc disorder.

Disc Herniation (Cervical, Thoracic & Lumbar) is a medical condition affecting the spine due to trauma, lifting injuries, or idiopathic causes, in which a tear in the outer, fibrous ring of an intervertebral disc.

Failed Fusion (Cervical, Thoracic & Lumbar) is the movement of bone at the location of a fracture or fusion surgery due to inadequate healing.

Hematoma Subarachnoid is an abnormal and very dangerous condition in which blood collects beneath the arachnoid mater, a membrane that covers the brain. This area, called the subarachnoid space, normally contains cerebrospinal fluid. The accumulation of blood in the subarachnoid space can lead to stoke, seizures, and other complications

Hydrocephalus also known as "water in the brain," is a medical condition in which there is an abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the ventricles, or cavities, of the brain.

Intracerebral Hematoma involves bleeding into the cerebrum, the largest section of the brain, resulting in an expanding mass of blood that damages surrounding neural tissue.

Meningioma is a benign, slow-growing tumor of the meninges of the brain

Neuralgia is pain one or more nerves caused by a change in neurological structure or function of the nerve/s rather than by excitation of healthy pain receptors

Pituitary Tumor is an abnormal growth on the pituitary gland.

Radiculopathy (Cervical, Thoracic & Lumbar) refers to a set of conditions in which one or more nerves are compressed causing pain, numbness and or weakness.

Scoliosis is a medical condition in which a person's spine is curved from side to side

Spinal Tumors are neoplasm’s located in the spinal cord.

Spondylolisthesis (Cervical, Thoracic & Lumbar) is the anterior or posterior
displacement of a vertebra or the vertebral column in relation to the vertebrae below.

Spondylosis is arthritis of the spine.

Stenosis (Cervical, Thoracic & Lumbar) is narrowing of the spinal column that causes pressure on the spinal cord, or narrowing of the openings (called neural foramina) where spinal nerves leave the spinal column.

Subdural Hematoma is a collection of blood in the space between the outer layer (dura) and middle layers of the covering of the brain (the meninges).

Vertebral Fracture is a collapse of a vertebra. It may be due to trauma or tumor and weakening of the vertebra
