Personalized Treatment for Neurological Conditions

Your multidisciplinary team of neuroscience experts works with you to develop the most effective treatment plan to meet your health needs, lifestyle and goals. We offer minimally invasive and open surgical techniques.

Minimally invasive surgery

At Providence Spokane Inland Neurosurgery & Spine Center, we commonly perform minimally invasive surgery for spine and brain conditions, including some strokes and aneurysms. Minimally invasive procedures require small or no incisions, incorporating imaging technology, catheters, wires and other tools to treat patients. Minimally invasive procedures cause less harm to body tissue. For many patients, this means less time in the hospital and improved outcomes.

Open surgery

Even some conventional open surgery has become less invasive. New medical technology allows our surgeons to make smaller cuts when they perform certain procedures. This can lead to a better overall recovery for our patients.

Common procedures

Depending on your condition and symptoms, your neuroscience specialists may recommend one of the following procedures: 

  • Brain tumor surgery
  • Deep brain stimulation (DBS)
  • Epilepsy surgery
  • Functional neurosurgery
  • Neurointerventional surgery
  • Neuro-oncology surgery
  • Neurosurgery
  • Neurotrauma surgery
  • Neurovascular surgery
  • Pituitary tumor surgery
  • Skull base surgery
  • Spine surgery
  • Stereotactic radiosurgery

Why Choose Us for Your Brain and Spine Care?

We are a destination for patients from Washington, northeast Oregon, Idaho and Montana. Our compassionate, comprehensive treatment is just one of the reasons you can trust Providence with your care for spine and brain conditions, including movement disorders, neck and lower back pain, scoliosis, trauma that requires emergency care, and brain tumors or brain bleeds. Here are five more:

We offer the most extensive elective and spine trauma program and the only adult scoliosis program in the region. We also provide adult and pediatric neurosurgery. Our subspecialist experts give leading-edge care you can’t get anywhere else in Spokane. For example, our movement disorder subspecialists offer advanced treatment, such as deep brain stimulation (DBS), for tremors, dystonias or balance issues. Community hospitals and smaller practices routinely refer their patients to us for our ability to handle both common and complex cases and conditions.

Our board-certified, fellowship-trained neurosurgeons and neurovascular, cerebrovascular and spine surgeons work closely with multidisciplinary teams of neuroscience experts. Depending on your treatment, your team may include a variety of specialists, from neuroradiologists to nurses and neuro-interventionalists. Our advanced care for the treatment of brain tumors, for example, includes a team of neurosurgeons and radiation oncologists.

Our surgeons are trained in the latest medical technologies and are early adopters of new treatment methods and technologies. They often perform robotic-assisted surgery, a minimally invasive technique that gives patients the best possible outcome with a faster recovery. They also perform cerebrovascular, skull-based and endovascular neurosurgery, which focuses on tumors and vascular diseases of the brain and spine. And because we prioritize whole-person care, you may also be seen by physiatrists, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other rehabilitation experts.

We know that putting patients first leads to the best outcomes. That’s why we work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that fits your needs. If you’re having surgery, we offer patient classes, handouts and other helpful educational resources to make sure you feel supported and fully understand your care. And after your surgery, there’s 24/7 support if you have questions or concerns during your recovery. In some cases, we offer a convenient digital experience that may include virtual visits when appropriate, preparation reminders and follow-up messages to help you check in directly with your care team.

When you’re our patient, we build a personal relationship with you. If you have a life-changing condition, we compassionately care for you in the long term. And if you need rehabilitation services, we may refer you to Providence St. Luke’s Rehabilitation Medical Center, which is one of the most advanced rehabilitation centers in the country and a valued part of our network. We integrate treatment, technology and care to help patients of all ages achieve their goals following a stroke, a spinal cord or brain injury, and other conditions.

At Providence, we are committed to providing access to the best care to everyone in our diverse community. We respect and support the racial, ethnic, religious, gender, sexual and spiritual identities of each of our patients. We offer services such as translation for non-English-speaking patients, financial coordination, and discounted hotel and gas cards for our out-of-town patients. In keeping with our Mission, Providence offers financial assistance programs that provide free and low-cost care to those who are eligible.

Every patient at Providence benefits from our deep expertise across many neuro subspecialties. We are part of a collaborative network that includes award-winning physicians and research scientists across 51 hospitals in seven states. The power of our local experts and this network is one of the reasons thousands of people choose Providence Neuroscience Institute of Spokane for their neurological care each year.
