Neurosurgery

The Neuroscience Institute at Conroe Regional Medical Center is available 24-hours-a-day for emergency neurosurgery, as well as neuro-trauma treatment, and neuro-critical care. Some of the intracranial disorders that may require neurosurgery include:

  • Cerebrovascular disease – conditions that affect circulation of blood to the brain.
  • Aneurysm – an abnormal, balloon-like, bulge in an artery.
  • Hemorrhagic stroke – something that occurs when a blood vessel in part of the brain bursts..
  • Subdural hematoma – a collection of blood on the surface of the brain.
  • Herniated lumbar and cervical discs.
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) – an injury to the brain caused by an external source.
  • Arteriovenous malformation – an abnormal connection between arteries and veins.
  • Hydrocephalus – the buildup of fluid inside the skull.
  • Chiara malformation – a structural defect in the cerebellum, which is the part of the brain that controls balance.
  • Brain tumors – an abnormal growth of cells within the brain, or spinal canal.
  • Pituitary tumors – abnormal growths in the pituitary gland.
  • Meningioma – a tumor, usually non-cancerous, that grows from the meninges.
