Choosing the best in neurosciences

Patients who choose us for their care find an integrated approach to disease management. Our team of neurosurgeons works closely with neurologists, pain medicine specialists and physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists to provide care using a clinically integrated approach. As a result of this close collaboration, treatment of new patients at the Institute always starts with the least invasive, most conservative approach.

Throughout diagnosis and treatment, we stay focused on your physical, emotional and spiritual needs, providing evidence-based medicine that guides us toward the best possible outcomes and improves the quality of life for our patients.

Experience, dedication, teamwork and access to advanced technologies set us apart from other neurosurgery providers in the region. Because we work together under one roof, we provide each patient with a personalized plan of care grounded in an interdisciplinary approach. We consider our patients and their families an integral part of the healthcare team.
