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.

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.
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.
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.
During the last three decades, new therapeutic methods have entered the field of treating neuropsychiatric patients, whose aim was to use less risky methods with fewer complications and with the aim of greater patient satisfaction. One of these methods is the use of angiography in the treatment of brain and nerve diseases, especially the treatment of vascular lesions.
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.
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.
Peripheral nerves originate from the spinal cord and end in many parts of the body. Different diseases originate from these nerves. Among these diseases, injuries and tumors can be mentioned. Another large group of peripheral nerve diseases are those that lead to narrowing of the channels in which the peripheral nerves are on their way from the spinal cord to the hands and feet.
Carotid artery stenosis is a narrowing of the large arteries on both sides of the neck that supply blood to the head, face, and brain. This narrowing is usually the result of the accumulation of plaque material (atherosclerosis); which occurs universally in all areas where arteries have significant blood flow. Carotid artery narrowing usually develops years earlier than other types of heart disease, such as coronary artery stenosis or peripheral vascular disease (PVD). In some cases, carotid artery stenosis may have no symptoms for a long time.
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.
Endoscopic surgery has created a new approach to the treatment of spinal stenosis and disc herniation. This method allows a closer view to the surgical site, and as a result, the accuracy of the surgery is higher. The endoscopic surgery technique causes the least damage to the tissues around the spine and the muscles are less damaged.
