Neurosurgery is the surgical treatment of diseases affecting the central nervous system which includes the brain, spinal cord and all the peripheral nerves which can involve any area of the body.
Neurosurgeons diagnose, assess and perform surgery to treat disorders of the nervous system.

- tumours of the brain, spine and skull
- trauma to the head and spinal cord
- degenerative spinal conditions and prolapsed discs
- cerebral (brain) aneurysms and strokes
