When Should You See a Neurosurgeon?

How your neurosurgeon in Sugar Land, TX, can help you

A neurosurgeon is an expert at diagnosis and treatment of neurological conditions. What sets a neurosurgeon apart from a neurologist is that a neurosurgeon can also perform surgery for conditions of the brain, spine, and nervous system. Dr. Rajesh Bindal at Texas Spine & Neurosurgery Center in Sugar Land, TX, provides a wide range of neurology and neurosurgery services.

So, when should you see a neurosurgeon? There are a few acute signs and symptoms which may indicate you should see a neurosurgeon. These include:
