People think of neurosurgery as brain surgery — but it is much more!
Neurosurgery is the surgical specialization that treats diseases and disorders of the brain and spinal cord. Back pain
can sometimes produce neurological symptoms such as numbness, muscle weakness, and loss of bowel and bladder
control due to dysfunction at the nerve root.
These symptoms are indicators that neurosurgery is required to treat the underlying cause of back pain as opposed to
conservative treatments. Procedures to treat back pain under the realm of neurosurgery include discectomy,
laminectomy, and spinal fusion surgery.
