What is Pain Management & Treatment in Neurosurgery?
Pain can be caused by a variety of factors. Conditions that affect the neurological system of your body present a greater challenge in both diagnosing and treating the underlying cause. The nerves, bony structures and vascular supplies of the neurological structures are designed to work together in a very balanced way. Additionally, pain from neurological conditions may occur in areas further from the actual point of injury and damage.
As a world-class spine surgeon, Dr. Theofilos has an in-depth knowledge of the human neurological system, and is able to pinpoint the cause of your pain. His recommendations for treatment begin with the most conservative approach possible, relying only on surgery when all other options do not produce the desired results.
