When a neurological condition requires surgery, neurologists and neurosurgeons collaborate to provide advanced surgical treatments for brain tumors, vascular diseases, movement disorders, epilepsy, spinal problems, chronic pain, and brain and spine injuries.
Caring for neurosurgery patients requires a highly trained multi-disciplinary team of neurosurgeons, physicians, nurses and therapists. Our specialized care helps patients manage and treat neurological and spinal conditions.
At various locations, Providence offers complex surgeries of the spine and brain.
We use advanced operating theaters equipped with powerful microscopes, surgical tools, implantable devices and computer systems that navigate the intricacies of the patient's spine and brain for accurate and effective procedures.
When surgery is required, our neurosurgeons perform:
- Minimally invasive spinal surgery
- Spinal disc removal
- Spinal nerve decompression
- Spinal fusion of the neck and back
- Craniotomy for brain tumor removal
- Minimally invasive brain surgery
- Endoscopic brain surgery
- Pituitary surgery
- Trigeminal neuralgia surgery
- Spinal fluid shunting procedures
Certain locations make use of advanced and computer-assisted image-guided neurosurgery. These minimally invasive brain surgeries allow for increased precision in tissue dissection and ensures that patients benefit from the highest level of treatment.
