Neurosurgery

If you think you might have a problems with your neurological system, it can be hard to concentrate on anything else. But coming to see a neurosurgeon doesn’t necessarily mean you need brain surgery.

Neurosurgery is actually a branch of medicine that includes both operative and non-operative treatment of conditions that affect your nervous systems. That covers a wide range of brain, spine, and nerve disorders, including the following:

  • Extracranial and intracranial carotid and vertebral arteries
  • Disorders of the pituitary gland
  • Tumors in and around the brain
  • Disorders of the spinal cord, meninges, and spine, including those that may require treatment by removing or replacing intervertebral discs, spinal fusion, or instrumentation
  • Disorders of the peripheral nerves
  • Disorders of the autonomic nervous system
  • Some of the services our neurosurgeons perform include:
  • Craniotomy
  • Disorders of the Cervical/Thoracic/Lumbar Spine
  • Herniated Discs
  • Spinal Fusions and Decompression
  • Treatment for Brain Abscess
  • Trigeminal Neuralgia Surgery
