Neurosurgery
With the many talents from Neurosurgery Department at Beijing Tiantan Hospital and other famous hospitals, Beijing Puhua International Hospital (BPIH) has formed a group of excellent specialists with solid techniques in neurosurgery. Through this medical platform, patients are able to choose from doctors Tiantan Hospital or organize a consultation of doctors from other first-class hospitals. There are many specialized medical groups within Neurosurgery Department, and each group often focuses only on one disease or technique. By cooperation between those specialized medical groups, patients receive the most effective and elegant care.

Neurosurgery is a branch of Surgery closely related to neurology. Based on tested and reliable surgical methods, neurosurgery applies medical research to the problems of the human nervous system (brain, peripheral nervous system, and spinal cord) In addition, neurosurgery treats injury, inflammation or functional diseases of related tissues (such as the skull, spine, scalp and the cerebrovascular system). This specialty also studies the pathogenesis and treatment for diseases such as: epilepsy/seizure disorders, Parkinson disease and neuralgia. Neurosurgery is an innovative discipline in terms of diagnosis, treatment and prevention of neurological diseases.

Neurosurgery treats neurological conditions including: diseases of brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nervous system.

 
Brain Diseases:
 
——brain tumors (such as: glioma, meningioma, nerve sheath tumor, pituitary tumor, and skull neoplasms)
 
——cerebrovascular diseases (including: intracranial aneurysm, arteriovenous malformation and cavernous hemangioma)
 
——functional diseases (surgery for epilepsy and extrapyramidal diseases)
 
——congenital diseases (hydrocephalus, atelencephalia)
 
——brain damage (cerebral contusion/laceration, hematoma, skull fracture)
 
spinal cord diseases: ——intra-spinal tumor, cervical spondylosis, lumbar disc herniation, spinal cord injury
 
peripheral nervous system diseases: ——peripheral nervous system neoplasm, neural transplantation
 
hereditary tumors: ——such as angioreticuloma (hemangioblastoma), multiple neurofibromata
 
Treatments:
——Surgery
Surgery is the often the most effective treatment for most benign and malignant tumors, brain damage and cerebrovascular malformation.

——Radiotherapy
The goal of radiotherapy is to cure brain tumor, or slow down its progression. 

——Chemotherapy
