Neurosurgery and Spinal Surgery
Neurosurgeons treat a full spectrum of brain conditions – from congenital malformations to benign and cancerous brain tumours. Although brain conditions can affect infants to older adults, many conditions tend to follow specific demographic patterns. The most common and deadly type of brain tumour, glioblastoma multiforme (also called glioblastoma), is far more prevalent in people ages 45 to 70, but some benign tumours affect children more frequently. Cerebral aneurysms can occur in children, but are far more common in people ages 35 to 60.
