As a cornerstone of Virginia’s medical community since 1838, VCU Health has an established reputation for providing the highest quality of care, an exceptional patient experience and excellence in teaching and research. The Department of Neurosurgery continues this tradition, providing innovative, cutting-edge treatment in a compassionate environment.
Today, our team has developed new technologies for treatment and consistently sets the standard of care in many areas of modern neurosurgery. We are also breaking new ground in the area of patient experience with the opening of the N.O.W. Center — the VCU Health Neuroscience, Orthopaedic and Wellness Center. The N.O.W. Center is a new concept in outpatient medicine for the multidisciplinary treatment of a wide array of orthopaedic and neurological conditions.
On behalf of the VCU Department of Neurosurgery, I thank you for visiting our website. Our physicians provide the entire spectrum of neurosurgical services, and no problem is too large or too complicated for our skilled, dedicated team of doctors, nurses, advanced practice providers and other professionals. Just as important, we treat all patients in the atmosphere of caring and compassion that is the legacy of Harold Young, M.D., for whom the Harold F. Young Neurosurgical Center is named. Rest assured — you’re in good hands.
