Comprehensive Neurosurgical Specialization

Our neurosurgical team provides expert care for conditions affecting any portion of the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and the cerebrovascular system.

Our dedicated team of experts, including surgeons, nurses, therapists, pain management specialists, and technicians work closely with you from diagnosis through treatment, including a structured recovery program. We provide pre-operative and post-operative patient and family education, a patient guidebook outlining what to expect each step of the way. Family members, referred to as “coaches,” are encouraged to participate with the recovery process, learning about special exercises, medications, and follow-up care.

If back or neck pain reduces the quality of your life and everyday activities such as walking, shopping or chores become difficult or unbearable, our team first offers conservative measures like diet, exercise, physical therapy and medications. If these treatments no longer provide relief or alleviate your pain, it may be time to consider spine surgery.
