Neurosurgery

BMG Neurosurgery

When you read these words and comprehend their meaning, which area of the body is making it possible? When you decide to stand up and walk, what makes your legs move? The answer to both of these questions is the same: your nervous system.

Everything you do on a daily basis, from your thoughts and emotions to your movements and actions, comes from your nervous system. Your brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves throughout your body work together to allow you to do everything you do. When a problem arises in this area of your body and getting better depends on surgery, patients can turn to the experienced neurosurgeons at Baptist Medical Group.

What Do BMG Neurosurgeons Do?

The neurosurgeons of BMG treat patients requiring consultation or surgery for neurological abnormalities. They have extensive training in the diagnosis and treatment of neurological problems. This includes problems occurring in the brain, spinal cord or peripheral nerves.

Many times neurosurgeons are called upon by other BMG physicians, including emergency medicine physicians, neurologists, internal medicine physicians and family practitioners. When patients are sent to a BMG neurosurgeon for a consultation, neurosurgeons play a major role in helping the referring physician decide if surgery is needed.

Neurosurgeons help decide the best course of treatment by reviewing the results of previous medical tests including scans, blood work, ultrasounds, nerve studies and EEGs conducted on the patient. Working as a part of a team with neurologists and other specialists, neurosurgeons ensure patients receive the right treatment through surgery so they can get better.
