Interior Content

​​​​​O​ur neurosurgeons specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the central and peripheral nervous system, including spine conditions, infections of the brain or spine, stroke, tumors, vascular disorders, or degenerative disease of the spine. Our neurosurgeons have received advanced fellowship training and board certification in neurosurgery. Our specialists will:  ​

  • Diagnose your injury or condition 
  • Determine the best course of treatment, including medication, exercise, injections or other non-operative care as well as surgery 
  • Direct rehabilitation of your condition by recommending exercise or physical therapy 
  • Look for opportunities to prevent future injury or slow the progression of disease. ​

Should I see a neurosurgeon or orthopaedic surgeon? 

If you have a spine condition, you may be wondering if an orthopaedic spine surgeon or a neurosurgeon is right for you. For most types of spine care, both specially trained orthopaedic surgeons and neurosurgeons may be considered.  

​​

In the past, neurosurgeons were primarily responsible for spine surgery. But, in the last 25 years, spine surgery has evolved so that both neurosurgeons and orthopaedic surgeons specialize in spine surgery, and both are now equally qualified for most of the typical spine operations.
