Neurosurgery or neurology is an important branch of medicine that deals with the study of the nervous systems like the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. The disease of the brain may occur when the patient has trauma due to road traffic accidents, falls, or other violence. Head is the commonly injured organ in such type of injury. There may be a fracture of skull bone, blood collection inside the brain which is called hematoma in medical term. Many of such cases need to do surgery immediately thus need to be taken to the hospital as soon as possible.
Similarly, other problems that need to show the neuro doctor and hospital are like chronic headache, seizures, tingling sensation over the body, etc. These problems need to be shown to neurologists while the problem of trauma and injury to the head is addressed by a neurosurgeon. There may be a neurological problem in children like poor mental development, autism that needs to be addressed by a pediatric neurologist.
