Neurology deals with injuries, disorders, diagnosis and treatment of the brain, spine and nervous system including their coverings, blood vessels, and all effector tissues. More than 600 known neurological disorders are there which affects our nervous system severely but still for most of the diseases treatment options are very limited and research is going on. According to a global study conducted by World Health Organization 8 out of 10 disorders are neurologic problems in which 3 are highest disability classes. Every year 6.8 million people are dying all over the world due to neurological disorders or injury. In Europe 38% of total population is suffering from a brain disorder. In United States Stroke is the third leading cause of death.  Globally 62 million people are suffering from cerebrovascular disease, 50 million from epilepsy, 326 million from migraine, 160 among 100000 from Parkinson ’s disease and 24 million from Alzheimer disease dementias. The global cost of mental health conditions alone is $ 2.5 trillion as of now and is expected to reach $6 trillion by the year 2030.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a nondegenerative, non-congenital affront to the brain from an outer mechanical power, potentially prompting perpetual or impermanent disability of psychological, physical, and psychosocial capacities with a related decreased or modified condition of cognizance. Frequently, the term brain injury is utilized synonymously with head damage, which may not be connected with neurologic deficiencies. The definition additionally has been dangerous with varieties in consideration criteria. In case of diffuse axonal injury brain neurons which communicate with each other are injured and loss the ability to communicate and integrate with each other. In United States 1.4 million people endure a traumatic brain injury (TBI) each year among which around 50,000 die, 235,000 are hospitalized. Head injury is very common among young adults and Trauma is the leading cause of death in people under 40.

Skull base surgery is an exceptionally concentrated arrangement of surgical strategies performed to treat different conditions that influence the skull. Skull base surgery is done to remove both benign and cancerous tumours, abnormalities of brain and few vertebrae of the spinal column. Skull base surgery is performed either traditional way or by minimally invasive way. Brain damage consists 35% of total injuries all over the world. Cost burden is €400 billion every year in Europe.

Vertebral column or spine is a part of axial skeleton consisting 33 bones. There is a number of disorders and injuries which effects our sentation, body control and movement severely. For some spinal disorders surgery is not required but for severe cases surgery is essential. Minimally invasive spine surgery treats Degenerative disc disease, Lumbar spinal stenosis, Spinal deformities, Spinal Tumors, Spinal infections and many other conditions.

Endovascular neurosurgery or neuro-interventional surgery is a procedure in which small tools are used which passes through blood vessels to diagnose and treat various disorders and conditions of the central nervous system. The term endovascular means “inside a blood vessel.” Endovascular neurosurgery uses tools that pass through the blood vessels to diagnose and treat diseases and conditions rather than using open surgery. The surgeon often uses radiology images to help him or her to see the part of the body involved in the procedure. This minimally invasive image guide technique is well accepted over traditional surgery as it minimizes the risks and provides healthy outcomes and quick recovery. Angiography devices market is expected to reach $27.7 billion by 2019. Global Interventional Neurology Market Is expected to reach $2,370.4 Million by the year 2020.

Neurological Nursing is a nursing specialty dealing with assessment, nursing diagnosis and management of brain and nervous system disorders, tumors, brain injuries, trauma, spine injuries, stroke, seizures aneurysms and many more conditions.

Critical illness defines severe damage of vital organs like Central nervous system failure, brain damage, and spine injury and there is a chance of life threatening deterioration in the patient’s condition. Critical care is time dependent and delivered by physician to a critically injured patient and requires high complex decision to assess, monitor, manipulate and support vital organ function in order to treat vital organ system failure.

Neuromodulation is the physiological process by which a given neuron uses one or more chemicals to regulate diverse populations of neurons. This is in contrast to classical synaptic transmission, in which one presynaptic neuron directly influences a single postsynaptic partner. Neuromodulation can be conceptualized as a neurotransmitter that is not reabsorbed by the pre-synaptic neuron or separated into a metabolite. Such neuromodulators wind up investing a lot of energy in the cerebrospinal liquid (CSF), affecting (or "regulating") the action of a few different neurons in the cerebrum. Consequently, a few neurotransmitters are likewise thought to be neuromodulators, for example, serotonin and acetylcholine.

Worldwide neuromodulation business market was evaluated at $3.65 Billion in 2015 and estimated to reach $6.20 Billion by 2020 with a CAGR of 11.2%.
