Many people assume that neurosurgery is a brain surgery, but it performs more than that. Neurosurgery is the branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of patients with diseases or disorders of the central and peripheral nervous systems. Neurosurgeons can offer care for both adults and pediatric patients. A neurosurgeon will determine whether you need a surgical or non-surgical treatment based on the type of injury or disease you have.
The Department of Neurosurgery at Nikhil Hospital uses the latest technology and procedures to treat both adults and children suffering from serious conditions. Our team of neurosurgeons perform hundreds of neurosurgeries every year with a high success rate. We are well-known and are leading at treating brain, spine, and nervous system problems using the latest technology.

What Does a Neurosurgeon Do?
A neurosurgeon can treat diseases, injuries, or disorders related to the nervous system such as the brain, spinal cord, and spine. They closely work with neurologists and other healthcare professionals to offer proper care for patients suffering from serious and complex neurological problems.
Most of the neurosurgeons perform brain and spine surgeries. But some neurosurgeons specialize in treating diseases related to the spine such as spinal cord disorder, neck and lower back disorders etc. Some neurosurgeons only treat infants and children suffering from neurological problems and they are called pediatric neurosurgeons.
