Northwest Neurosurgery

Our Services

​​While neurosurgery is well known for cranial surgery, as a more active and healthy population ages, our neurosurgeons provide even more care for common spinal conditions such as sciatica, “slipped” discs, spinal stenosis, scoliosis, neck and back pain. The last fifteen years have seen an explosive growth in spinal surgery techniques, from minimally invasive spine surgery to innovative spinal fusions, kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty, computer-guided navigation and artificial cervical disc placement (using the Medtronic Bryan Disc and DePuy ProDisc). The physicians of Northwest Neurosurgery were trained in the midst of these advances, allowing them to offer the most safe and effective treatments to patients as soon as they become available.

Advances in the field of brain surgery have been dramatic as well. MRI and CT scan data can now be fed into an operating room computer to create a three-dimensional coordinate system that precisely guides surgeons during operations. The neurosurgeons at Northwest Neurosurgery treat metastatic tumors, gliomas, meningiomas, blood clots and vascular malformations spread throughout the brain

Neurological surgeons treat a variety of conditions and perform many different types of surgery. The most common conditions treated by the surgeons of Northwest Neurosurgery include the following:

Brain Surgery

Benign Brain Tumors

Many brain tumors are benign and include the following tumor types:

Acoustic neuromas are tumors arising from the eighth cranial nerve, often presenting with dizziness, ringing in the ear and hearing loss. Other symptoms include headache and double vision.

These tumors are very complex and at times can be difficult to remove. These tumors often require the collaborative work of two surgeons during the same procedure.

Other treatment options include Stereotaxic radiosurgery with the Gamma Knife.
