Neurosurgery is a surgical specialty focusing on problems involving the head, spin and peripheral nerves. When possible, the neurosurgical services attempts to solve issues without surgery. But when surgery is required, the team uses minimally invasive procedures, in an attempt to minimize incision size, prevent collateral damage to surrounding structures and reduce the length of hospital stay. 

Conditions treated include:

  • Brain and pituitary tumors
  • Traumatic hemorrhage
  • Stroke
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Chiari malformation
  • Compression fractures
