Are You In Need of Neurosurgical Treatment?

Many patients come to our practice worried about their diagnosis and the treatment their condition may require. After all, we treat your brain, your spinal cord, and your nerves, and the idea that something has gone wrong with these crucial parts of your body can be frightening.

You may have been referred to our office by a primary care physician or you may have found us on your own, seeking answers to the mysterious and often painful symptoms you might be experiencing. Either way, you’ll have access to our considerable experience and skill in diagnosis and treatment of the diseases and conditions that affect the nerves, spinal cord, and brain.

What Is a Neurosurgeon?

A neurosurgeon is a medical specialist who has completed additional schooling and training, which provides the skills necessary for diagnosing and treating a range of conditions affecting the central and peripheral nervous system.

Following our four years of pre-med and four years of med school, we also completed a one-year general surgery internship and five to seven years in neurosurgery residency. Additionally, we further our education and stay current through continuing education programs, racking up hundreds of hours every year.

Simply put, we treat problems that affect your brain, your spine, and your nerves. These conditions can often stump doctors who haven’t completed the same extensive training as we have.

Patient-Focused Neurological Care

We encourage you to read through our website. It has been designed with you in mind and has a great deal of useful information to help answer your questions. We’ve also included a Patient Forms section so that you can download and fill out your forms and send them to our office prior to your first visit. This helps save you time and allows us to focus on your care rather than on the paperwork.

Although the field of medicine we practice is known as neurosurgery, your treatment may not necessarily require surgery. Your neurosurgeon will discuss your options with you and create a treatment plan to restore your function and relieve your discomfort.

Brain Surgery

If you've been told that you need brain surgery, you probably have a lot of questions and concerns. You can trust our neurologists to listen carefully and help you better understand your condition and the procedure.



Spine Surgery

Spinal injuries and back pain are a major cause of disability, causing many to lose not only their ability to work but also their quality of life. We offer solutions to help you regain mobility and control over your life.



Pain and Peripheral Nerve

Nerve pain can be mysterious, without an immediately apparent cause. That doesn’t make it any less uncomfortable or debilitating, though. We listen to your concerns and help identify the source of your pain so it can be resolved.
