Your nervous system controls how you sense and react to the world around you. It involves your brain, spinal cord, muscles and nerves.
Neurosurgeons are doctors who use surgery to repair the nervous system.
Neurosurgeons also use non-surgical means to help adults and children with conditions like these:
Neurology support groups
