The Neurosurgery department offers exceptional care for a variety of diseases and conditions affecting the nervous system, including the brain, spine, and peripheral nerves. Our program is known for our surgical expertise and great relationships with referring physicians. More importantly, among patients we’re known for offering state-of-the-art care that is thorough, warm and compassionate.

Neurosurgeons treat disorders of the nervous system, primarily brain and spinal cord, in which surgery is more effective than medical therapy. This would include certain cases of ruptured disc, herniated disc or arthritic spurs that compress the spinal cord or peripheral nerve roots, brain tumors, spinal cord tumors, and other types of conditions where surgery is the primary treatment of choice from minimally invasive procedures to traditional open surgeries.
