You might be a candidate for the brain surgery services available at the Brain and Spine Center of South Florida if you have a brain-related condition that’s not treatable with nonsurgical strategies.
Conditions that may require surgery include:
To determine if you’re a candidate for brain surgery and what kind of surgery you need, the team performs a complete medical exam and reviews your medical history. They may initially try medications or other nonsurgical therapies to treat your condition before recommending surgery.
While everyone recovers from surgery at their own pace, you can expect to schedule some downtime to fully recover from brain surgery. The amount of time depends on the condition you’re treating and the type of brain surgery you have.
Immediately after brain surgery, you spend time in the hospital under observation before you can go home to finish your recovery. If you have an open craniotomy, you may need to remain in the hospital for a week or longer for supervised medical care.
After some brain surgeries, you might need to take medications to prevent seizures and inflammation in your brain. The surgeons might prescribe medications to ease any discomfort or pain you have during your recovery.
The medical team continues to monitor your recovery from brain surgery during routine checkups. They may also recommend physical or occupational therapy after certain types of brain surgery to restore your mobility and body functions.
