What is a neurosurgeon?

A neurosurgeon is a highly specialized medical doctor who specializes in the surgical treatment of conditions affecting the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves. These skilled professionals are trained to diagnose, treat, and manage a wide range of neurosurgical disorders, often using surgical interventions to address complex and critical medical conditions.

Scope of Practice:

  • Brain Surgery: Neurosurgeons perform various brain surgeries to treat conditions such as brain tumors, vascular malformations, aneurysms, and hemorrhages. They may also operate to relieve intracranial pressure caused by conditions like hydrocephalus.
  • Spinal Surgery: Neurosurgeons are experts in spinal surgery, addressing issues like herniated discs, spinal cord tumors, spinal deformities, and spinal cord injuries. They perform procedures to decompress nerves, stabilize the spine, and restore spinal function.
  • Peripheral Nerve Surgery: Some neurosurgeons specialize in treating peripheral nerve disorders, including carpal tunnel syndrome, peripheral nerve tumors, and nerve injuries. They perform surgeries to repair or release compressed nerves.
  • Functional Neurosurgery: Neurosurgeons also work in the field of functional neurosurgery, addressing conditions like epilepsy, movement disorders (e.g., Parkinson’s disease), and chronic pain through procedures like deep brain stimulation (DBS) and epilepsy surgery.

Roles and Responsibilities:

  • Diagnosis: Neurosurgeons use advanced imaging techniques, including MRI and CT scans, to diagnose neurological conditions accurately. They often work closely with neurologists and other specialists to determine the most appropriate treatment plan.
  • Treatment Planning: Based on their diagnosis, neurosurgeons develop treatment plans tailored to each patient’s unique needs. These plans may involve surgery, non-surgical interventions, or a combination of both.
  • Surgical Procedures: Neurosurgeons perform intricate and delicate surgeries to address neurological conditions. They use specialized tools and techniques to operate on the brain, spinal cord, or peripheral nerves while minimizing damage to surrounding structures.
  • Postoperative Care: After surgery, neurosurgeons provide postoperative care and closely monitor patients’ recovery. They may work with a multidisciplinary team, including nurses, physical therapists, and rehabilitation specialists, to ensure the best possible outcome.
  • Research and Innovation: Many neurosurgeons engage in research to advance the field and develop new surgical techniques and technologies. This commitment to innovation helps improve patient outcomes and treatment options.
  • Emergency Care: Neurosurgeons are often involved in emergency cases, such as traumatic brain injuries or spinal cord injuries, where immediate surgical intervention may be necessary to save a patient’s life or prevent further damage.

In conclusion, neurosurgeons are highly specialized medical professionals who play a critical role in diagnosing and treating disorders of the nervous system. Their expertise in complex surgical procedures and commitment to improving patient outcomes make them essential contributors to the field of medicine, particularly in the realm of neurological care.

    Dr. Abraham’s did my surgery and it was a great success. After nearly 8 years of pain, I finally found a doctor who could help me. My sciatica nerve was compressing my L4 and L5 which was giving me pain and a very poor quality of life. Not only does Dr. Abraham’s have a great bedside manner, but also he certainly knows the complexities of the spine. Thank you so much for giving me my life back!! P.S. I have referred his name to several of my friends and they too have had a successful outcome!!

    Dr. Abrahams is an extremely compassionate and highly skilled neurosurgeon who, along with Dr. C. Shannon, saved my husband's life by removing a complicated malignant metastatic brain tumor during a very long surgery. In addition, Dr. Abrahams has been my surgeon for several spinal procedures and I trust him with my life.

    😷 Dr Abrahams is THE BEST! He is the absolute best brain & spine surgeon by far! His group is beyond excellent! My back & neck had been fractured in an accident, and I made the mistake of seeing a "spine doctor on Tarrytown Road," who did not want to see me again unless I needed more surgery! I was outright denied an appointment, even after this "doctor" performed a lumbar laminectomy on me!!!😡 I was miserable and in excruciating pain. Then everything changed.... 🙏THANK GOD I FOUND DR ABRAHAMS! He took all the time he needed with me to come up with a new plan and thoroughly explained the correct surgery I needed. I had a fractured sacrum, lower back S1, right up to L5, needing spinal fusion. I also had cervical herniations. My life changed after Dr Abrahams took care of my surgery, his office still checks up on me to make sure I'm doing well. The office and entire staff is so helpful, friendly and caring. I recommend Dr Abrahams on a regular basis to people I meet that have brain or spine problems. Dr Abrahams is also BRILLIANT. He is the creator of many medical devices that he received patents for. When you go in his office your eyes won't know what to look at first he has so many awards & patents. He's a MUST GO TO doctor! He changed my life, and I am forever grateful to him, Lisa (his personal coordinator), and his entire staff, fellow doctors that are also in group with Dr Abrahams. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM as well as the doctors in practice within his group. You will get the best care by far.😊

    Dr. Abrahams literally saved my life. I went to him back in 2004 in horrible shape after being misdiagnosed by my Primary Care Physician. He went above and beyond in saving my life. I highly recommend him for his skills, ability, his humanity and love he demonstrates for both his patients and his work. Helena Edwards

    Dr. Abrahams performed back surgery on me 6 years ago . I was 38 yrs old and in excruciating pain, not able to walk for longer longer than 5 minutes, sleeplessness nights and constantly being put on pain medication , including countless rounds of PT. Surgery was my only option to return to the quality of life I had before my injury and I am beyond grateful for Dr. Abrahams and his team. I have been playing softball, exercising , walking my dog and enjoying everything that I have missed for years! Dr. Abrahams to me Is a lifesaver! The best of the best !
