Neurosurgeons in Malta and Gozo
Neurosurgeons diagnose, assess and perform surgery on disorders affecting the nervous system. The nervous system is made of:
- the central nervous system, i.e. the brain and spinal cord, and
- the peripheral nervous system, which can involve any area of the body
Neurosurgeons work ranges from straightforward cases to highly complex and long operations.
A key aspect of their work is monitoring patients after surgery. This is crucial as complications can happen, such as blood clots, strokes and comas.
