consultations and treatment
This website is the realization of our old dream – the creation of an Internet resource for patients and their relatives, which is dedicated to the most common neurosurgical diseases.
The aim of the neurosurgery.lv (neirokirurgi.lv) website is to help patients and their relatives obtain easily accessible and understandable information about the nature of the disease, concepts of the treatment, possible consequences, and general prognosis.
We have also prepared and will continue to prepare practical information on various issues that can arise during the treatment. This information, surely cannot replace a visit to a doctor, but it can better prepare for it, or help to remember some facts that may have been forgotten after a visit to a Neurosurgeon.
Each disease description is written by us and is based on a thorough analysis of multiple sources of evidence-based medicine, articles of world recognized and cited industry journals, as well as our considerable experience. This information will be further updated in accordance with current events and changes in medicine.
We hope that this site will be of some help to our colleagues, general practitioners and Neurologists, who on a daily basis need to have general understanding of large variety of medical issues, including Neurosurgery.
In Neurosurgery we deploy evidence based approach combined with extensive experience and common sense.
As before, and now, the highest satisfaction to us is when a patient, after meeting with us, gets back for his normal life and leaves the disease in the past. This is what we are working for.
We are always ready to assess the possibilities of helping patients, regardless of their country of residence. You are always welcome!
