Neurosurgery: surgical practice involved with treatment of disorders of the brain, spine and spinal cord, and peripheral nervous system.
Metastatic brain tumor: tumor in the brain that is malignant and spread from cancer in other parts of the body, such as lung or breast.
Glioma: tumor that started in the brain.
Cerebral aneurysm: balloon-like outpouching or sac that arises from an artery around the brain. The aneurysm grows from a weakened wall of an artery. If the aneurysm bursts and bleeds into the space around the brain, this is called a subarachnoid hemorrhage. A subarachnoid hemorrhage is a catastrophic event that requires emergency medical treatment at a specialized medical center.
Carotid endarterectomy: surgical technique to remove atherosclerotic plaque and fatty deposits from the carotid artery in order to restore blood flow to the brain. This preventative procedure significantly reduces the risk of future stroke.
Arteriovenous malformation: disorder of abnormal tangle of blood vessels in the brain, which may lead to headaches, seizures, or bleeding.
Spinal disorders: includes disc herniations in the neck or low back leading to pain, spinal degenerative changes leading to cervical or lumbar stenosis causing difficulty walking, and tumors or vascular malformations of the spinal cord.
