Patient Reviews


Neurosurgery is a medical discipline that involved the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the brain, spine, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves. They various conditions treated are a result of trauma, tumors, degenerative disease (arthritis), vascular disease, and nerve entrapment

Neurosurgery is a very broad field and includes many different areas of specialization. The common areas of specialization include neuro-oncologic surgery, cerebrovascular neurosurgery, skull base neurosurgery, functional neurosurgery and spine surgery. Because many of these cases are rare, it is common for surgeons to have practices that incorporate more than one area of subspecializing.

Neurosurgeons are highly specialized experts who treat a wide variety of neurological issues. At our practice, we treat the following:

  • Brain tumors, both malignant and benign
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Spinal cord tumors
  • Disc herniation
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal trauma
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Chiari malformation
  • Failed back syndrome
  • Functional neurosurgery
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Pituitary tumors
  • Radiculopathy
  • Tethered cord
  • Worker’s compensation and motor vehicle injuries

You should expect that your neurosurgeon will get a detailed history, focused physical examination and review any imaging studies that have been done. Most neurosurgical conditions require imaging (e.g., MRI or CT) to be properly diagnosed. You should expect that your neurosurgeon will need imaging done prior to your first visit.

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a surgical procedure that involves implanting electrodes in the brain, which deliver electrical impulses that block or change the abnormal activity that cause symptoms.

Deep brain stimulation is approved by the Food and Drug Administration to treat a variety of movement and neurologic disorders including:

  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Essential tremor
  • Dystonia
  • Epilepsy
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder

Before being considered a candidate for deep brain stimulation (DBS), patients must undergo an extensive evaluation process. Ideally, a multidisciplinary team of specialists including a neurologist, neurosurgeon, neuropsychologist and psychiatrist will assess the patient.
