Centers for Neurosurgery, Spine, and Orthopedics Provides a Comprehensive Approach to Top Spine and Brain Care
Why See a Neurosurgeon for Your Spine and Brain?
For spine and brain conditions requiring surgery, the value of an evaluation by a neurosurgeon is their rigorous training. A neurosurgeon studies the structural biomechanics of the back, including the bones, discs, and muscles, as well as the central nervous system which is responsible for the communication between the brain, spine, and nerves. Consequently, neurosurgeons are the only surgeons licensed to operate on, not just the vertebral bones of the back, but also on the spinal cord, its branching nerves, the blood vessels that supply the entire nervous system including the brain, and the brain tissue itself.
With their definitive expertise, the esteemed physicians at Centers for Neurosurgery, Spine, and Orthopedics philosophically take a conservative approach towards care. Every evaluation involves the consideration of whether a medically proven, evidence-based, non-invasive technique would ultimately treat the patient. Surgery is only offered once it is determined that it would be the best or only option for a cure or improvement to a patient’s condition.

Surgical and Nonsurgical Approaches to Back and Brain Disorders
The spinal cord originates in the brain as a bundle of nerves and extends throughout the back. Small nerves branch off and travel throughout the body. This nervous system is subject to tumor growth.
Each type of brain tumor and its location within the brain has different implications with regard to treatment and expected outcomes. Brain neurosurgeons are experts at removing each type of brain tumor.
