What is Neurosurgery?
Neurosurgery is the medical specialty concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of disorders affecting any portion of the nervous system including the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and extra-cranial cerebrovascular system. Neurological diseases can impact the brain, spine, spinal cord, muscles, nerves, balance, speech and other senses. With more than 1,000 types of neurological diseases, specialization is vital for a correct diagnosis and treatment.

What are the Treatments?
We invest in the latest technology for minimally invasive procedures and complex microscopic surgery. The technology includes computer-assisted image guidance systems to navigate the delicate structures of the brain and spine, pinpoint the surgical target and protect nearby tissue and nerves.
At Cape Cod Healthcare, we perform more minimally invasive spine surgeries than many Boston hospitals, including balloon kyphoplasty, a technique to treat fractured vertebrae that brings immediate pain relief.
