Advances in endoscopic and minimally invasive neurosurgery now allow less morbid treatment of many disorders and tumors of the brain, pituitary, skull base and spine. Small endoscopes give the surgeon a brighter, magnified, panoramic view of the operative field. The high resolution that is possible gives pristine visualization of nerves and blood vessels. Minimally invasive surgeries are frequently maximally effective and may result in shortened hospitalization and faster recuperation. #endoscope #surgery #advances #neurosurgery #cmin #neurosurgeon

The uncontrollable spasms of one side of the face, a condition known as Hemifacial spasm (HFS), can stigmatize a person and have a severe detrimental impact on his or her social and professional life. At times the spasms can be grossly disfiguring. While botulinum toxin (Botox) can offer temporary improvement, it is not a long-term permanent treatment. Microsurgical techniques, however, can offer a lasting or permanent cure in many if not most patients with HF. #hemifacialspasm #hf #neurosurgery #spasm #disfiguration #botox #brain #function #treatment #help #is #here

Most physicians are unfamiliar with the family of disorders known as Chiari Malformation (CM). Even amongst active neurosurgeons, most have very little experience evaluating and caring for patients with CM. When a person is given this diagnosis, he or she should seek out a physician with appropriate training and one who has a track record in treating this very interesting condition. #chiari #chiarimalformation #brain #surgery #treatment #there #is #hope

The pain of Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN) can be devastating. In the past some have referred to the condition as “the suicide disorder” because of the intense
unrelenting facial pain. Unfortunately, many patients with TN are misdiagnosed as having dental disease and undergo unnecessary tooth extraction or root canal treatment. The classic electrical quality of the pain involving the mid or lower face lasting for seconds to minutes should alert one to consider this diagnosis and seek consultation from a dentist or physician familiar with this curable disorder. #TrigeminalNeuralgia #FacialPain

Did you know that your brain can process an image your eyes have seen for as little as 13 milliseconds, which is less time than it takes to blink? #humpday #facts #enjoy #the #scenery #brain #science #neuroscience #nature #themoreyouknow

#happyfriday Endoscopes are now being used to treat selected disorders of the brain in a less invasive fashion. This means in many cases shorter hospitalization and faster recuperation #keyholesurgery #minimallyinvasive #neurosurgery #pituitarytumor #meningioma #braintumor #brainsurgeon #endoscopy #endoscopicsurgery #minimallyinvasiveneurosurgery

#WednesdayWisdom Dehiscence of the superior semicircular canal or superior canal dehiscence syndrome (SCDS) is one of the treatable causes of dizziness, vertigo and hearing loss. The diagnosis is usually made by an Ear Nose and Throat surgeon and confirmed on CT scan #superiorsemicircularcanal #SCDS #vertigo #dizziness #hearingloss #skullbasesurgery #neurosurgery #neurootology

Trigeminal Neuralgia is one of the most debilitating facial pain disorders. In most cases this is caused by an artery putting pressure on the nerve that gives sensation to the face. The good news is that there are multiple treatment options, both medications and surgery. Treatment depends on timely precise evaluation and diagnostic testing #trigeminalneuralgia #facial #pain #microvasculardecompression #hemifacialspasm #neurosurgery #braintumor #skullbasesurgery instagram.com/p/Bl3nBTjhDis/
