A few reasons why choosing a GNI surgeon to conduct your brain or spine procedure is the best decision you can make:
A neurosurgeon has the longest and most rigorous training of any surgeon in the entire world; neurosurgery residents must all complete residency programs lasting at least 7 years. These residents work on and learn about the brain and spinal cord throughout the entire program. In contrast, other specialists may have spine training that lasts only 12 to 18 months.
As neurosurgeons perform brain procedures daily, they have more finesse and a lighter touch than other surgeons. This repetitive movement of treating the most delicate and complicated organ in the body has allowed neurosurgeons to carry over that technique to perfect spine procedures as well.
Neurosurgeons are specifically trained to care for the nerves and spinal canal. Given that most spine procedures are necessary due to nerve issues and nerve pain, neurosurgeons can complete these procedures with expert hands as they are nerve specialists
The GNI Surgeons insist on staying at the forefront of medical technology and surgical techniques; they are continually learning about and developing new devices that ensure successful surgery outcomes and keep GNI offerings on the leading edge of neurosurgical treatment.
Minimally Invasive Techniques
Advancements in technology enable our surgeons to perform many spine procedures utilizing minimally invasive techniques which result in less post-operative complications and quicker recovery time for patients. When surgeries are performed using minimally invasive techniques, smaller incisions are made along with microscopic video cameras to access the deep spinal areas needing treatment. Additionally, muscle movement and retraction are kept to a minimum allowing for less trauma to the area, and less anesthesia is used in the procedures because they are quicker to perform.
