Neurosurgery deals with the surgical treatment of diseases affecting the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nervous system.

Unlike a neurologist, a neurosurgeon treats pathologies of the central and peripheral nervous system by surgical intervention. Consultation with a neurosurgeon may be recommended for acute pain in the spine that restricts the movements of the limbs or trunk, numbness, cramps or chronic pain — especially in situations where there is relief from the pain even after using analgesics. In many situations, a neurologist can refer a patient to a neurosurgeon.
