Neurosurgeons specialize in the surgical treatment of the central nervous system. This includes the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and skull. Neurological challenges commonly managed by neurosurgeons include hemorrhages, aneurysms, traumatic head injuries, degeneration of the spine, tumors of the central nervous system, and congenital abnormalities.
At Regional Health Medical Clinic 5th Street, your neurosurgeon and care team will discuss any recommended procedures including surgical options, alternatives to surgical care, anesthetic options, and recovery plans. They will also work with your primary care provider to help coordinate your post-operative recovery.
