Neurosurgeon Consultation (this is a temporary file taken from SW11 MEDICAL website which I would need to reword and reorganize, but satisfactory for short term use)
Neurosurgery deals with spine and nervous system. The main treatment offered by neurosurgeons is surgical treatment, but not always.
Neurosurgeons have vast experience with back pain, various spine disorders, spine and brain trauma, tumors, vascular problems within brain, stroke and congenital disorders.
The most typical health problem is back pain. The neurosurgeon may discuss the gravity of the problem, possible perspectives and ways of treatment, from change of work load or everyday behaviour through rehabilitation, drugs, local perispinal injections and even surgery. Spine surgery may be considered via NHS, privately or abroad.
SW11 MEDICAL offers cooperation with one of the largest polish and european neurosurgical centers, Department of Neurosurgery in Military Hospital in Bydgoszcz, Poland. The department performs more than 2000 neurosurgical procedures per year and offers high quality of service, with single rooms for patients and follow- up in London.
The typical procedure is lumbar or cervical discectomy, when the prolapsed spine disc is compressing a nerve root, resulting in back pain radiating to the leg or to the arm, with the total cost of the hospital treatment with four day stay usually about 1200- 1800 GBP.
The flight connestions from London to Bydgoszcz are covered by direct flights. Mor complex surgery is also available, if any concerns or delays within NHS system.
Therefore you may consider the visit and discussion with a neurosurgeon in SW11 MEDICAL when you have severe back pain, especially when your drugs are not effective and you would like to discuss your spine condition, and have MRI scan of the cervical or lumbar spine.
Prolonged pain or numbness in legs or kands, especially the sharp pain with sudden onsets within the facial region, so called trigeminal neuralgia may be also a good topic to discuss with a neurosurgeon.
More complex diseases like brain aneurysms, tumors like meningiomas, astrocytomas, gliomas or various brain and spinal cysts should also be consulted with a neurosurgeon. Also a second, or even third opinion may be often wise in case of some health related decisions.
Neurosurgeons, orthopedists, Chiropractors and Osteopaths offer fast, effective diagnosis and treatment in our clinics. Pain, especially intractable or chronic pain, used to be something many patients simply had to learn to “live” with. In recent years, however, researchers have learned a great deal about pain and its physiological and psychological basis, leading to pain management treatments that can provide complete or partial pain relief.
