Brain Conditions

Learn About the Brain Conditions We Treat at Raleigh Neurosurgical Clinic

Our neurosurgical team members at Raleigh Neurosurgical Clinic work together to treat a variety of brain conditions. Our experienced surgeons perform more than 700 procedures a year on patients of all ages. Treatments we specialize in include:

Brain Tumors
A brain tumor is a mass, or growth, of abnormal cells within tissues located in or close to the brain. It can be cancerous (malignant) or non-cancerous (benign), and can begin within the brain (primary) or in other parts of the body and then spread to the brain (secondary, or metastatic).

Stroke
A stroke occurs when the flow of blood to a portion of the brain is completely cut off or significantly reduced. When this happens, brain cells are deprived of oxygen, and begin to die. More than 750,000 people in the U.S. suffer a stroke every year.

Epilepsy
Epilepsy is a neurological disorder in which the brain’s electrical activity doesn’t work as it should, causing seizures. A person generally must have at least two seizures to be diagnosed with epilepsy.

Aneurysms
A cerebral (brain) aneurysm is a weak spot in the wall of an artery in the brain that causes an outward bulging or “ballooning.” Brain aneurysms affect approximately 1 out of every 15 people in the U.S.

Hydrocephalus
Hydrocephalus is a neurological condition that’s caused by an abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain, resulting in pressure on the brain.
