Neurosurgery is the surgical branch that deals with pathologies related to the spine and the cranial-encephalic region. Specialized assessment is the crucial first step in determining the potential need for surgical treatment. The most common spinal cord pathologies include benign myeloradicular compressions (such as herniated/protruded intervertebral discs, spondyloarthrosis, spinal canal stenosis, spondylolisthesis), as well as those caused by trauma. Collaboration with neurologists, neuroradiologists, and especially physiotherapists for rehabilitation activities is crucial.

Once a diagnosis is made, typically aided by magnetic resonance imaging or other radiological techniques, the neurosurgeon, together with the patient, evaluates the most suitable solution for treating the detected pathology.

The MiniHospital “Sandro Pertini” is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for neurosurgery and employs neurosurgeons with extensive and documented experience who can perform a wide range of spinal surgeries, including cervical and thoracic disc herniation, lumbar, cervical, and thoracic stenosis, spondyloarthrosis, etc.

Following a neurosurgical consultation, procedures such as vertebroplasty and microdiscectomy for disc herniation are possible.
