When you think of neurosurgery, you may just think of brain surgery, but more than 65 million Americans experience back and neck pain every year, and 4 out of 5 adults will experience at least one bout of back pain at some point in their life. The most common back pain occurs in the lower back as it bears the most weight and stress. The back is a balanced network of bones, ligaments, muscles and nerves which all work together to balance and bear the weight of your body and the load it carries. The spine has a series of curves in the neck, upper, and lower back that help absorb the impact of day to day living. Due to the complexities of the nerves in the spine, a neurosurgeon is one of the most skilled specialists trained to perform spinal procedures. If you are looking for a skilled team of New York neurologists and neurosurgeons experienced with spinal and brain procedures, the UHS neuroscience division is here to help.
According to the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, a scientific and educational association for neurosurgeons recently completed a statistical study that shows neurosurgeons spend about 70 percent of their time treating spine problems.
