Neurosurgeons specialize in the surgical treatment of diseases that affect the central nervous system, including the brain and spine. They have extensive training and expertise in both the surgical and medical management of neurological diseases caused by birth defects, cancer, traumatic injury, illness, degenerative diseases, movement disorders, pain, epilepsy and cerebrovascular disease, including hemorrhages, aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations.
Patients who choose the Neuroscience Institute for their care find an integrated approach to disease management. Our team of neurosurgeons works closely with neurologists, pain medicine specialists and physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists to provide care using a clinically integrated approach. As a result of this close collaboration, treatment of new patients at the Institute always starts with the least invasive, most conservative approach.
Throughout diagnosis and treatment, we stay focused on your physical, emotional and spiritual needs, providing evidence-based medicine that guides us toward the best possible outcomes and improves the quality of life for our patients.
Experience, dedication, teamwork and access to advanced technologies set us apart from other neuroscience providers in the region. Because we work together under one roof, we provide each patient with a personalized plan of care grounded in an interdisciplinary approach. We consider our patients and their families an integral part of the healthcare team.
For patients who would benefit from surgery, our 12-bed Neuroscience ICU – overseen by experts in neurocritical care – offers advanced monitoring and treatment following surgery, brain injury or treatment for neurological diseases. A new six-bed Epilepsy Monitoring Unit ensures that patients with seizures receive state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment. A neurohospitalist – a hospital-based inpatient neurologist specialty trained in vascular neurology – ensures extra attention and high-quality care for our patients.
