How We Can Help

Our neurosurgeons see patients with a variety of neurological conditions including:

  • Brain tumors, such as pituitary and skull base tumors. Our neurosurgical brain tumor experts remove these tumors using endoscopic (minimally invasive) and open surgical approaches. They also perform “awake” craniotomies (the patient is sedated but not asleep).
  • Spine disorders, such as herniated disks, spinal stenosis, spinal deformities and issues caused by spinal trauma. Our team uses open and minimally invasive surgical techniques to perform lumbar fusions, laminoplasty, artificial disk replacement, diskectomies and microdiskectomies (removal of all or parts of a spinal disk).
  • Epilepsy, which can be treated with surgery for patients whose symptoms persist after they have tried multiple medications.
