You’re not like anyone else. Your body, brain and spine are wholly unique.
That’s why our skilled neurosurgeons will create an effective, tailored care plan for your brain or spine condition.
Neurosurgery Expertise for Complex Conditions
Complex brain and spine conditions require expert care and attention. When non-invasive treatments prove unsuccessful, patients can find the highest level of care from a board-certified, fellowship-trained neurosurgeon.
Neurosurgeons have trained for an average of eight to nine years. These experts are focused on protecting the spinal cord, nerves and brain, and have significantly more training than any other surgeon who operates on the spine.
Our neurosurgeons perform a wide variety of minimally-invasive procedures and complex surgeries. Each specializes in a different area, often collaborating with each other for the best patient outcomes.
Neurosurgeons lead the team for patients with brain and spinal conditions, but care plans and treatments are highly collaborative.
Our neurosurgeons partner with neuroradiologists, neurologists, neurotologists, pain management specialists, neurological physical therapists, and chiropractors to diagnose and help patients get relief.
Wellstar’s coordinated services for brain and spine care at hospitals and health parks make it easy for patients to access the care they need.
At Wellstar, we take surgery seriously. That’s why surgical solutions for brain conditions, spine disorders, as well as back and neck pain are only recommended when no other treatment path is likely to be successful.
Our team excels to meet and exceed national quality metrics. We are reviewed by third parties to ensure patients can count on the highest quality care and the best outcomes.
Our spinal surgery programs are accredited Programs of Excellence by Aetna and Blue Cross.
Many of our patients get peace of mind and confidence when a neurosurgeon says they can heal without surgery.
