Brain Surgery
Brain Surgery Many brain appendages and diseases related to this organ can be treated by surgery. Injuries such as blows that lead to bleeding inside the head or skull, and types of benign and malignant brain cysts and tumors. Mortazavi Comprehensive Neurology Clinic provides the following services to patients
A cerebral aneurysm is a bulge in a blood vessel in or around the brain. A brain aneurysm occurs when a bulge develops in a blood vessel in the brain and fills with blood; which eventually turns into a bag called an aneurysm. Aneurysms often cause no symptoms; Unless it opens and leaks blood or causes symptoms due to pressure on the surrounding brain tissue.
Blood vessel entanglement is called AVM or arteriovenous malformation ; which connects different vessels in the brain. Red blood vessels of the brain are always responsible for transporting oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the brain.
Cavernous Malformation
Cerebral cavernous malformations (CM) or cavernous malformations are a type of vascular lesions; which are specifically created in the central nervous system. While the annual risk of first symptomatic bleeding is very low, after an initial bleeding event, the risk of subsequent bleeding increases more than tenfold. Also, abnormalities located in the brain stem are more likely to occur again.
MoyaMoya Disease
Moyamoya disease is a rare disorder caused by the narrowing of the carotid arteries feeding the brain. This disease reduces the blood flow in the arteries that bring blood from the carotid artery to the brain. These arteries are MCA and ACA. Posterior cerebral arteries that receive blood from the Vertebero Basilar artery remain intact.
Spine surgery
Spine surgery Many appendages of the spine and spinal cord and related diseases can be treated by surgery. Among these diseases are neck and back disc, spinal stenosis, tumor, vascular appendages and fractures . Mortazavi Comprehensive Neurology Clinic provides the following services to patients.
Trigeminal Neuralgia
Trigeminal Neuralgia is associated with severe and sharp shock-like pain in the head and face. Depending on which of the three parts of this trigeminal nerve are stimulated, this pain can be around the eyes and forehead, nose, jaw and lips . This pain is almost excruciating and one-sided. The trigeminal nerve is one of the twelve cranial nerves of the head.
A tumor is a collection of abnormal cells. The skull contains the brain and has a strong tissue to protect and care for it. In the same way, the spine also protects the spinal cord. The growth of any type of cell within the enclosed space can cause disorders. Tumors are either cancerous (malignant) or non-cancerous (benign). Determining the type of tumors is very important in improving treatment.
