As the practice of surgery involving the central nervous system continues to evolve with the development of new technology and techniques, we treat patients using the following modalities:

  • Complex, restorative spine surgery, including deformity correction and revision procedures
  • Computer-assisted neuronavigation using the O-Arm intraoperative imaging system
  • Disc replacement surgery
  • Minimally invasive spine surgery

We treat patients with a broad range of diseases and conditions, including:

  • Degenerative spine disease
  • Ruptured discs
  • Primary and metastatic spinal tumors
  • Traumatic spine injury
  • Congenital disorders

Education

In addition to the extensive training built into the neurosurgery residency program, we’re proud to offer an accredited enfolded fellowship to senior residents interested in pursuing spine surgery as a specialty.
