Nicholas Marko
Specializes in Neurosurgery
Average rating 1.0 stars out of 5 (1 rating)
Address: 1942 Braeburn Circle, Salem, VA 24153
"Dr. Marko was supposed to revise my LP shunt and remove my VP shunt hardware (both done by another surgeon) during my surgery. However he decided to remove both shunts because he didn’t like how they were done. I was shocked by this news because we both knew there were issues going into surgery, that’s why he was revising the one. Also, during surgery some type on antibacterial cleaning agent was spilled into my eyes which left me with severe cornea abrasions. So not only did Dr. Marko not do what he said he would do, but actually left me in worse shape. What made it worse was that he brushed off my concerns about needing a shunt and referred me to a pain management specialist. I am now forced to find a new neurosurgeon who is actually ethical and understands IIH and my personal history."

What is Neurosurgery?

Neurosurgery is the highly skilled specialty devoted to the surgical treatment of issues affecting the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. It is similar to the specialty of neurology, which also treats disorders of the nervous system. Even though there is some overlap, neurosurgery focuses on the surgical treatment of nervous system disorders. However, not every neurosurgery job means surgery -- neurosurgeons may also provide a diagnosis, interpret imaging and test results, or provide non-surgical treatment, depending on the nature of the illness.

Neurosurgeons treat nervous system disorders such as:
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Brain or spine tumors
  • Blood clots in the brain
  • Hydroencephalitis
  • Aneurysms or stroke
  • Seizures
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Carpal or cubital tunnel syndromes
  • Repair of severed nerves
  • Infections of the brain or spinal fluid

Because the nervous system is both so delicate and so complex, neurosurgery has one of the most rigorous and competitive medical education programs. After college and medical school, it is common for a neurosurgeon to require 7-10 additional years of intense training.

New discoveries in this field allow neurosurgeons to heal and accomplish more than ever before, and they are now able to treat many injuries and illnesses that were once fatal.
