Neurosurgery - SBH Health System

Neurosurgery

The SBH Division of Neurosurgery specializes in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of disorders of the brain and spine including tumors, degenerative disease and trauma.

Brain tumors may present with symptoms of headache, nausea/vomiting, dizziness and blurred vision.  A multi-disciplinary team, including medical and radiation oncologists, will be involved in the care of the patient.  If surgery is indicated, then state of the art image navigation will be utilized in the biopsy and/or resection of these lesions.

Degenerative spine disease may present with symptoms of neck and back pain.  This axial pain may radiate into the arms and legs and even cause weakness of the extremities.  If conservative modalities, including physical therapy and pain management fails, then surgical decompression +/- a fusion will be indicated.  Less invasive approaches will be utilized if appropriate for a given patient.

All brain and spine surgeries performed at SBH will be done by a board certified neurosurgeon.  Trainees are not involved in these surgeries.
