This lecture looks at the epidemiological data about the neurological complications at various levels of spinal cord surgery. The various causes of the neurological deficits occurring during the early post-operative period are covered, followed by a discussion of the steps one can take to avoid these complications. Also discussed are the difficulties which one encounters during the revision surgery and the increased incidence of neurological complications occurring.
