Neuro-Surgery (Neurological surgery)  involves operations on the brain and spinal column. These procedures include excising, or cutting out, brain tumors and removing ruptured discs in the spine, an operation known as a laminectomy. The use of specialized imaging equipment, such as computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), permits surgeons to identify the exact location of some tumors, making surgery to remove these growths more precise and less harmful to surrounding healthy tissue.
The brain is the command center of the body; it controls the body, our movements and our sensations as well as our understanding and speech. Peripheral nerves bring the information from the eyes, ears, face, arms, legs and the rest of the body to the brain. They also take the orders from the brain to the muscles of the face, arms, legs and the rest of the body. This allows us to speak and move. These nerves act like electric wires that take information to and from the brain. The brain depends on the blood to give it oxygen and sugar; four major blood vessels take the blood to the brain. Two are located in the front and are known as carotid arteries. The two in the back are known as vertebral arteries.
