Your spine is delicate, and we will consider conservative, nonsurgical treatment plans that might help alleviate your problem before looking at surgical options.
An evaluation may begin with one of our neurosurgical physician assistants or nurse practitioners. The visit will include a medical history and physical. When appropriate, radiological studies such as CT, X-ray, myelograms, MRI and angiograms may be ordered for additional evaluation.
After the initial evaluation a conservative treatment plan may be ordered by our physiatrists. This could include the physician performing injections or prescribing physical therapies that focus on the joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. Your treatment plan may involve surgery. Our neurosurgeons treat any problems from brain aneurysms to back issues. A neurosurgeon specializes in procedures to treat congenital abnormalities, degenerative spinal conditions, trauma, tumors, stroke, vascular abnormalities of the brain or spine, and spinal infections.
With this collaborative treatment planning, our patients receive personalized care to achieve the optimal benefits for a healthier life.
