What to Expect

With You Every Step of the Way

We provide:


  • The expertise of a major neurosurgical and spine center
  • The personal attention of private practice physicians
  • The support of a caring and responsive staff


You have come to us because you have a medical concern, and we want to do everything we can to help you and put you at ease. Our process is simple. We will conduct a thorough examination, using the most advanced tools at our disposal. Then we will sit and talk with you. We will give you our expert diagnosis, explaining in detail what we can do, and discussing all possible options. We will take the time to listen to your concerns and answer your questions.


One of our surgeons will be your primary surgeon, but you also will benefit from the collective knowledge and experience within our practice. We are a group of 19 board-certified physicians in the areas of neurosurgery, pediatric neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and plastic surgery. We frequently consult among ourselves to confirm we have developed the best possible treatment plan.  Also, on the day of surgery, two of us are typically present in the operating room. We’ve worked together hundreds of times, and that experience is a significant factor in achieving successful outcomes.


Our goal is to minimize discomfort and speed recovery by using advanced surgical techniques such as Gamma Knife Surgery to treat brain disorders without incisions, or endoscopic microsurgery, which is performed through tiny incisions, to treat brain and spine disorders.


Our caring staff will schedule the surgery, provide complete pre- and post-operative instructions, and answer any questions you might have. As you recuperate, we will check on your progress.
