  • An acoustic neuroma is a benign, often slow-growing tumor of the nerve that connects the ear and the brain. Also known as a vestibular schwannoma, the tumor can damage important nerves as it grows. This can affect hearing and balance.
  • Arteriovenous Malformation

    Arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is an incorrectly formed tangle of arteries and veins. Normally capillaries connect the body’s veins and arteries. In an AVM, the capillaries are missing. This disrupts the body’s normal blood circulation process. AVMs can occur anywhere in the body but are more common in the brain and spine.
  • Astrocytoma

    Astrocytoma is a glial cell tumor that begins in connective tissue cells called astrocytes. These cells can be found anywhere in the brain or spinal cord. Astrocytomas are a common type of brain tumor in both children and adults.
  • The two types of back pain are acute, which typically occurs after a fall, injury or heavy lifting, and chronic, which persists for three months or longer.
  • A brain aneurysm, also known as a cerebral aneurysm, occurs when a weak spot in a blood vessel in the brain fills with blood, causing it to balloon or bulge out.
  • A brain tumor is an abnormal growth of tissue in the brain. Brain tumors can be cancerous (malignant) or noncancerous (benign).
  • The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway on the inside of the wrist. Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the nerve that runs through the passageway is squeezed or compressed by the surrounding tissue.
  • A Chiari malformation is a structural defect in the cerebellum, the part of the brain that controls balance.
  • Chordoma is a rare cancerous tumor that is most commonly found at the base of the skull or spine.
  • Degenerative disc disease is a condition in which the intervertebral discs of the spine begin to deteriorate (or, degenerate) as part of the normal aging process. The intervertebral discs are the cushions between the vertebrae (bones) in the spine. These discs act as shock absorbers in the spine, as well as allow complex motions like twisting.
