Spine program

The VCU Department of Neurosurgery is a major referral center and resource for all methods of spinal surgery care, including the treatment of acute, severe spine injury. We have a long history of specialty care associated with complicated spine diagnoses, and our physicians have perfected the techniques for treating neurodegenerative and traumatic spine disease.

The neurosurgical center not only performs procedures to reconstruct the spine, but also to replace discs and reconstruct major spine injuries. The center also has an outstanding reputation for spinal decompression and stabilization, as well as standard microdiscectomy for newly ruptured discs. Using the latest computer technology, the doctors at the spine center have made spinal surgery safer and more effective.
