Neurosurgery takes place in a complex medical field, making it imperative that your neurosurgery expert witness be familiar with the particular details of your case. Focusing on the nervous system, neurology covers many health conditions and disorders of the spinal cord and brain. As with other disciplines of the medical field, lawsuits may result from issues with healthcare insurance and the quality of treatment.
One specialty of neurosurgeons is neuro-oncology, which treats cancer of the nervous system, such as brain tumors, spinal cancer, lymphoma, glioma, and meningioma. Neurosurgery expert witnesses called in for lawsuits related to this specialty of the field must be familiar with the various surgical procedures used to treat these conditions, such as spinal surgery and neurosurgery. Any unforeseen errors occurring during these procedures, as well as misinformation provided to a patient, can lead to potential lawsuits.
Other procedures of neurosurgery include brain surgery, radiosurgery, stem cell implantation, complex cervical surgery, spinal fusion surgery, spinal instrumentation, endoscopic surgery, peripheral nerve surgery, and vascular and endovascular neurosurgery. Neurosurgery is utilized to treat scoliosis, spine mestastas, spinal stenosis, neurotrauma, traumatic brain injury (T.B.I.), brain disorders, brain damage, and issues related to biomechanics.
