If we take a short tour around the offices, operational and laboratories of the Institute, then you can get some idea of modern neurosurgery, its successes and achievements, and about those issues over which there is still much work to do.
To imagine the practical value of neurosurgery, the first thing to mention the diseases of the Central nervous system, which are subject to surgical treatment. Such diseases quite a lot, but we will focus only on the key.
Tumors of the brain and spinal cord - a rare disease. However, if such a diagnosis is selected, a surgery is needed, and the earlier the better.
Brain tumor diverse. Therefore, the results of surgical treatment depends on two primary reasons: first, from what part of the brain the tumor is located, and second, what is its nature, that is, whether it is benign or malignant.
Almost all benign tumors of the brain and spinal cord can be removed completely, even in cases when they reach large sizes.
Unfortunately, not all brain tumors can be removed completely. However, quite often there are cases when even a partial removal of the tumor significantly improves the patient and for a long time prolongs its life.
