General neurosurgery covers a large number of procedures, including traditional open surgeries to remove brain tumors, relieve cranial pressure, treat traumatic brain injury, or to correct malformations of blood vessels.
Our doctors provide state-of-the-art medicine in the treatment and management of neurological disorders, including brain and spinal tumors, degenerative spinal conditions, epilepsy, movement disorders, cerebrovascular disorders such as stroke and aneurysm, and pain.
Procedures include minimally invasive surgical techniques for the brain and spine, deep brain stimulation for the treatment of both movement (e.g. Parkinson's) and mood disorders, awake craniotomy, techniques for mapping brain function, radiosurgery (stereotactic approaches andwhole brain), carotid artery stenting, and minimally invasive treatment of brain aneurysm (coiling).
