The brain is a major organ mainly made of nerve tissue and protected by our skull. It controls the operation of your body by processing sensory information, regulating blood pressure as well as breathing and releasing hormones.
What is brain surgery ?
Brain surgery is performed on patients by neurosurgeon to repair structural problems in the brain.
A damage in the brain can affect many functions of your body, including your memory, your sensation, as well as your personality.
The procedure may vary depending on the area of the brain and the condition that need to be treated. The new technologies developed within the healthcare industry now allow surgeons to operate on a specific brain portion without having to incise the patient.
What are the brain conditions I treat?
Brain conditions can be due to genetics, illness, or a traumatic incident.
The conditions I treat include:
-Numbness (loss of sensation or feeling in a part of your body)
-Weakness (loss of muscle strength, often confused with the fatigue feeling)
-Headaches (there are three types of headaches: tension, migraine, and cluster)
-Brain Tumors (a collection, or mass, of abnormal cells in the brain)
-Trigeminal neuralgia (a sudden and severe facial pain. It is qualified as a sharp shooting pain or like having an electric shock in the jaw, teeth and/or gums).
-Occipital Neuralgia (inflammation or injury of the nerves that run through the scalp)
-Water on the brain (also called hydrocephalus, the build-up of cerebrospinal fluid inside the skull, which put pressure and squashes the brain tissue).
