The brain is the most fascinating system in
the world. It is the component of the human body that
brings everything else together and also allows people to have independent thought, volitional
actions, and also interpret the world around them Anytime somebody has something going on with
their brain that’s causing them either physical distress or mental distress, it becomes a
very important episode of their life. Some disorders that affect the brain come on suddenly and they can’t be missed – and those are the ones that people have no difficulty identifying
and going to the hospital and seeking treatment for. Other pathologies come on more insidious pattern.
People just might have a general sense of unease or maybe something that’s
progressively developing, that over time really affects the way that they are able to live
life and enjoy life. Those situations should be looked into and not just dismissed as being
part of life, and that’s where a neurosurgeon can step in and be helpful. One of the difficulties
we have with treating symptoms of the brain is that some of the most common symptoms that
are indicative of a brain problem are also some of the most common symptoms in general.
So Great Lakes Neurosurgery is really a team of six neurosurgeons, all with excellent training, who are available to help patients in whatever way they need.
