The human brain — the largest and most complex organ in the human body, has more than 100 billion nerves that send messages to and from the brain and spinal cord to different parts of the body. That includes sensory organs, arms, hands, legs, and feet. The brain is vital to human existence. It lets us think, feel, and have memories and emotions — everything that makes us human.
For hundreds of years, scientists, scholars, and philosophers have been intrigued by the human brain. With 10+ years in minimally invasive/robotic surgery and scientific studies, Neurosurgeon Dr. Elenwoke is one such person. He is also the Co-founder of Docotal Health Foundation, a global health organization dedicated to eliminating health disparities by providing health services in the world’s most disadvantaged regions.
Dr. Elenwoke is passionate about helping underserved people get the information, support, and medical services they need while diagnosing and treating brain, spine, and nervous system conditions through surgical and non-surgical treatments.
Some conditions neurosurgeons treat are:
Conditions that occur at birth or before birth, such as cerebral palsy
Injury to the spinal cord and head
Spinal disc herniation
Tumor in the human brain and spinal cord and issues of the peripheral nerves
Infections in the brain and spine
Blood vessel problems, for example, blocked arteries and aneurysms
Ailments that lead to loss of function of the spine, for example, Sciatica
Persistent backaches and pains.
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Degenerative diseases associated with aging, for example, Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease
Seizure diseases (for example, epilepsy)
Neurosurgeons use cutting-edge imaging technologies to identify the source of the problem decide the best method to treat the condition effectively.
