Any surgery involving the brain can seem scary and overwhelming for patients and their families. But you’re in good hands with our neurosurgeons, who are experts in the field and who are using the latest technology and techniques to provide you with the very best surgical care.
We'll take you through the initial diagnosis, help set expectations about the surgery, ease the fears in the days leading up to the surgery, and afterwards we’ll help you along the road to recovery.
Conditions we can treat with neurosurgery include:
- Head trauma, such as brain hemorrhages and skull fractures
- Intracerebral hemorrhage, such as subarachnoid hemorrhage, interdepartmental, and intracellular hemorrhages
- Intractable pain of cancer or trauma patients and cranial/peripheral nerve pain
- Meningitis and other central nervous system infections including abscesses
- Moyamoya disease
- Neurovascular diseases in adults and children such as aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations (AVM)
- Some forms of drug-resistant epilepsy
- Some forms of intractable psychiatric disorders
- Some forms of movement disorders (advanced Parkinson's disease, chorea) – this involves the use of specially developed minimally invasive stereotactic techniques (functional, stereotactic neurosurgery) such as ablative surgery and deep brain stimulation surgery
- Traumatic injuries of peripheral nerves
- Tumors of the spine, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves
- Vascular malformations of the brain and spinal cord such as arteriovenous malformations, venous angiomas, cavernous angiomas, and capillary telangectasias
- Water on the brain (Hydrocephalus)
