What is Neurological Surgery?
Neurosurgery is the medical specialty that deals with diagnosing and treating diseases, injuries, and problems of the nervous system. This system includes the brain and spine.
Neurosurgeons are more than brain surgeons. They also evaluate and treat neurological disorders that involve any part of the nervous system.
Our Neurosurgery Services
Our neurosurgeons treat:
- Brain tumors
- Spinal tumors
- Pituitary tumors
- Spinal stenosis
Patients who require neurosurgery often are those who have had a stroke, an aneurysm, Parkinson’s disease, a spinal cord injury, or abnormalities of the blood vessels and/or nerves throughout the brain, spinal column, and spinal cord.
In addition to working with the Neurology department at Summit Medical Group, our neurosurgeons partner with physicians in other medical specialties such as orthopedic surgeons, otolaryngologists, and ophthalmologists to provide comprehensive care.
