Iran, Country of the Neurosurgical Elites

Neurosurgery is a very delicate medical field and sometimes is done on nerves that are thinner than hair. This specialty includes the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of disorders affecting every part of the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and the extracranial cerebrovascular system. The nervous system is disordered for a variety of reasons, such as infection, trauma or injury, autoimmune disorders, genetic disorders and side effects of some medications.
The nervous system has two distinct parts: the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and the peripheral nervous system (nerves outside the brain and spinal cord). Diseases in the lumbar and cervical disc are among the most common problems that are treated by a neurosurgeon. Neurosurgery is one of the most difficult surgeries because it requires more than ten hours of focus in the operating room, in addition to the precision it requires.
Iran is the country of the neurosurgical elites that has introduced many geniuses to the world in various fields of medicine, including neurosurgery. A well-known example of these surgeons is Professor Majid Samii. He has been the president of the International Society for Neurosurgery and was elected as the founding president of the Congress of International Neurosurgeons (MASCIN) in 2003 and was named surgeon of the year in 2018.

If factors such as cancers, infections, and bleeding have narrowed the spinal cord or brain, only the neurosurgeon can resolve these problems. Neurologists should be consulted about the treatment of diseases such as epilepsy, headaches, and migraines. A neurologist will refer the patient to a neurosurgeon if surgery is needed. You should also see a psychiatrist for treatment of bipolar disorders and depression.
