As a neurosurgical center, we are capable of diagnosing the following spinal issues that may be causing your back pain:
Lumbar spinal stenosis: This condition of the lower back is characterized by the narrowing of locations where the nerves travel resulting in nerve compression. It can happen as a result of thickened spinal ligaments, facet joints, outgrowth of bone, and herniated intervertebral discs.
Cervical spine conditions: This condition refers to pain from nerves in the neck that can cause headaches, back pain, numbness in the arms, and weakness in the hands.
Deformities: Different spinal deformities like lordosis, scoliosis, and kyphosis can cause immense pain. Each spinal deformity requires a unique treatment approach, which we based upon a thorough medical evaluation of the patient.
Spondylolisthesis: This condition occurs when the spine bones are not in normal alignment. Treatment often can be without surgery and should be tailored to the symptoms.
Spondylosis: This condition refers to degenerative changes seen in the spine due to wear and tear of everyday life.
Spondylolysis: This condition is defined as a defect or stress fracture in the pars interarticularis, most commonly in the lower lumbar vertebrae. A treatment plan will be formulated after we evaluate the condition of the patient thoroughly.
Lasting Treatment Solutions you Can Rely On
Queens Crossing Neurosurgery is always there with you during your battle against brain tumors. We will be part of your treatment TEAM with the following types of brain tumors:
- Astrocytomas: This is the most common type of CNS (Central Nervous System) cancer, arising anywhere in the brain and spinal cord. They develop from uncontrolled growth of tiny, star-shaped cells known as astrocytes in the nervous system.
- Gliobastoma multiforme: This fast-growing CNS tumor is a type of astrocytoma and can occur in parts of the brain called the frontal lobe and temporal lobes. This type of brain cancer mostly affects the adult population.
- Meningiomas: These tumors grow from the meninges, which are the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Although the majority of these brain cancers are benign, they should be evaluated before they grow larger in size.
- Pituitary tumors: These tumors develop from the pituitary gland and can cause the brain to overproduce some hormones. These tumors can also affect vision by pushing into the optic nerves. Treatment may be with medicine or surgery and should be tailored to the patient.
We Don't Believe in A One-Size-Fits-All Approach
Issues relating to nerves and bones affect adults irrespective of their gender and age. They manifest as dull, ceaseless aches to debilitating sharp pain. The quality of life can be severely degraded to the point of incapacitation. Not to forget malignant and benign brain tumors, which can not only affect a person physically, but also disrupt emotionally. Neurosurgical conditions and treatments should be evaluated in the context of each person individually.
