Personalized Surgical Care for Brain and Spine Conditions
Johns Hopkins neurosurgeons offer compassionate, personalized care for a variety of brain and spine conditions at our Bethesda location. Our neurosurgeons are part of the Johns Hopkins Neurosurgical Spine Center, as well as the Comprehensive Brain Tumor Center — one of the world’s largest brain tumor treatment and research programs.
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.
