Although most often associated with brain surgery, neurosurgeons also diagnose and treat disorders spanning the entire nervous system. In addition to the brain, this system includes the spinal cord, spinal column and all the peripheral nerves that branch out through the entire body.
Chronic Pain is one of the most common health conditions. Nearly, one out of every dozen adults suffers from chronic pain. It affects their lives as well as those of the people around them. Moreover, chronic pain affects every aspect of the sufferer’s life.

But given the right amount of patient information, a theraputic partnership can be established that enhances compliance, and ultimate benefit.
