Neurosurgery is a vast and complex field that can be categorized into various subspecialties. Here are 15 distinct areas of neurosurgery that would be useful to separate for teaching purposes:

  1. Spine Surgery: Involves the surgical treatment of spinal disorders, including degenerative spine disease, spinal tumors, and spinal cord injuries.

2. Cerebrovascular Surgery: Deals with conditions related to blood vessels in the brain, such as aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), and stroke.

3. Neuro-oncology: Focuses on the surgical treatment of brain and spinal cord tumors, both benign and malignant.

4. Functional Neurosurgery: Includes surgeries to treat neurological conditions such as epilepsy, movement disorders (e.g., Parkinson’s disease), and pain (e.g., trigeminal neuralgia).

5) Pediatric Neurosurgery: Specializes in the surgical treatment of neurological disorders in children, including congenital anomalies, pediatric tumors, and hydrocephalus.

6) Trauma Neurosurgery: Focuses on the surgical management of traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury.

7) Skull Base Surgery: Involves the treatment of complex conditions at the base of the skull, including tumors and vascular anomalies.
8) Peripheral Nerve Surgery: Deals with conditions affecting the peripheral nerves, such as nerve injuries, entrapments, and tumors.
9) Stereotactic and Radiosurgery: Utilizes precise targeting techniques for minimally invasive surgery and radiation therapy to treat brain tumors, AVMs, and functional disorders.
10) Endoscopic Neurosurgery: Employs minimally invasive techniques using endoscopes for the treatment of various brain and spinal conditions.
11) Neurocritical Care: Manages patients with life-threatening neurological conditions in intensive care settings.
12) Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) Disorders: Focuses on conditions related to CSF dynamics, such as hydrocephalus, pseudotumor cerebri, and CSF leaks.
13) Craniofacial Surgery: Involves the surgical correction of congenital and acquired deformities of the skull and face.
14) Neurotraumatology: A sub-specialty dedicated to the study and treatment of traumatic injuries to the nervous system.
15) Neuro-imaging and Interventional Neuroradiology: Uses advanced imaging techniques and minimally invasive procedures to diagnose and treat neurological disorders.

16) Artificial Intelligence and Neurosurgery

17) Augmented Reality and Neurosurgery

These areas cover the broad scope of neurosurgery, providing a comprehensive framework for educational purposes.
