Harley Street Neurosurgeons
Neurosurgery encompasses the investigation, diagnosis, treatment and research of the disorders of the nervous system. This involves the brain, peripheral nerves, spinal cord and cerebrovascular system. Neurosurgery is often supported by neuro-radiology to treat and diagnose a multitude of conditions. Procedures such as MRI, fMRI (functional), positron emission topography (PET) are utilized even during surgery. Neurosurgeons also focus on the rehabilitation of those that have been under their care.
Neurosurgeons are medical professionals, who after 6 years of undergraduate medical training received focused foundation experience and training in the fields of surgery and neurology, and they are members of the Royal College of Surgeons.
