Rossi Mautone MD, Neurosurgeon

Dr. Rossi Coruña

Dr. Rossi Mautone has more than 30 years of experience as a neurosurgeon. Through this website he wants to share the different progress of his specialty.

Neurosurgery is a surgical specialty that deals with the study, research, diagnosis and treatment of the organic and functional affections of the Central, Peripheral and Vegetative Nervous System; as well as its outer coverings and annexes and of all the actions carried out on them, whatever their etiology and the physiopathology of the patient's condition and age.

It represents a convergence between Clinical Neurology on the one hand and Surgical Pathology on the other. The first provides the necessary knowledge for the correct interpretation of the patient's symptomatology, and the second provides the accurate knowledge and technique for direct intervention on the patient's nervous system. It presents both a neurological-clinical and a surgical-therapeutic side that confers its medical-surgical nature.

For practical purposes we can divide Neurosurgery into two major groups: cranial surgery and spine surgery.

  • In cranial surgery we treat brain tumors (meningiomas, gliomas), traumatic brain injury, congenital malformations, vascular pathology (aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations), cerebrospinal fluid pathology (hydrocephalus).

  • In rachis surgery we operate discal hernias (cervical, lumbar), congenital malformations (Chiari, syringomyelia, spondylolisthesis), vertebral tumors (neurinomas, meningiomas, metastasis), degenerative pathologies (spondilotic spinal cord compression, canal stenosis), vertebral injury (fractures, dislocations, traumatic hernias).

This functional website provides images and links to several resources related to neurosurgery and to the work of Dr. Rossi. He has an office in A Coruña.
