Neurosurgeons specialize in the central nervous system - mainly the brain and spinal cord. Our expert neurosurgery team handles scheduled procedures for neurological patients as well as trauma cases referred from the emergency department. Some neurological disorders require corrective surgeries to restore proper functioning of the nervous system.


Our surgeons also often consult with oncologists on operable tumors. These include tumors of the brain and spine, traumatic injuries, congenital brain anomalies (Hydrocephalus), craniofacial anomalies (abnormal head shape), Spina bifida, Spinal dyraphism, and Cerebrovascular disease (Aneurysms, MoyaMoya, etc.).
