Conditions We Treat

We treat the full spectrum of neurosurgical brain and spine conditions in adults.

Specific Symptoms

In other cases, patients come to us with certain symptoms, and we will initiate investigations to determine their cause.  This begins with taking a complete history of the patient and performing a physical examination. Certain tests may then be ordered, including imaging studies (MRI scan, CT scan, X-rays, EMG) in order to better evaluate what is causing an individual’s symptoms.
