Neurosurgery

Neurosurgery is a surgical specialty that deals with studying, researching, teaching, preventing, diagnosing and treating organic and conditions of the Central, Peripheral and Autonomic Nervous Systems, as well as its coverings and appendages, and any action performed on these, no matter what the etiology and pathophysiology of the condition or age of the patient.

Despite its clearly defined limits, Neurosurgery has certain areas in common with other specialties that diagnose and treat certain ailments.  These specialties include: Anesthesiology and Critical Care, Angiology and Vascular Surgery, Cardiovascular Surgery, General Surgery, Maxillofacial Surgery, Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology, Paediatric Surgery, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Endocrinology and Nutrition, Geriatrics, Critical Care, Nuclear Medicine, Clinical Neurophysiology, Neurology, Neuroradiology, Ophthalmology, Medical Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Otolaryngology, Psychiatry and Rehabilitation.

Hospitales San Roque offers Comprehensive Care in this area, including assessment in Endovascular Neurosurgery and Radiosurgery.  Our lines of work are based on efficient management of this disease, technical skills and up-to-date expertise about the specialty, as well as ethical responsibility in decision-making and in our relationships with commercial businesses and intermediaries.

Thanks to our excellent equipment at Hospitales San Roque we are able to offer the most advanced micro-surgery techniques.  From a conceptual stand-point, we divide this specialty in three areas/units:

Central nervous system unit (brain and spinal)

  • Cerebrospinal fluid dynamics
  • Expansive Processes
  • Paediatric Neurosurgery

Spine Unit. We treat medical conditions that fall under the Neurosurgery specialty:

  • Sciatica and lumbosciaticas
  • Cervico-brachialgia, hyperreflexia and pyramidal syndrome
  • Neurogenic claudication, stenosis and instability with neurological symptoms
  • Vertebral fractures. Kyphoplasty for vertebral compression
  • Second surgeries and surgery for complications from other surgery
  • We apply multiple arthrodesis techniques and front and back spinal instrumentation, interbody and circumferential arthrodesis, titanium and carbon prostheses, autologous and heterologous grafts, expandable and dynamic systems, artificial discs, etc., with special emphasis on the most up-to-date approaches and the latest scientific research, avoiding over-reliance on prosthesis and instrumentation systems.
  • Minimally Invasive Surgery
  • We advise and provide information on ozone therapy and supporting scientific evidence

NOTE: Our Service does not treat deviations of the spinal column (scoliosis).  

Peripheral nerve unit

  • Worth noting, because of its prevalence, is the peripheral nerve biopsy.
  • NeuromasDecompressive techniques (carpal tunnel syndrome)
  • Member of: EANS, CNS, AANS, AOSPINE, among others.
