Neurosurgery care for your exact needs
You and your family deserve the best spine, brain and nerve care, regardless of where you live. That’s why our spine and neurological surgery experts collaborate every day to give you the benefit of Mayo Clinic care close to home.
Our experienced surgical team is specially trained in the diagnosis and treatment of the entire nervous system, including your brain, spinal cord and spinal column, as well as the nerves throughout your entire body. Conditions treated range from life-threatening to disorders that impact the quality of your life. Surgery often is part of treatment, but your neurosurgeon will work with you and your entire care team to consider conservative therapies, if possible.
You may think of neurosurgeons as brain surgeons. While it is true that brain surgery is part of what we do, the majority of the surgeries we perform are on the spine. We evaluate your total body, lifestyle and preferences — not just your injury — and work as a team to personalize a treatment plan to fit your exact needs.
BRAIN AND NERVOUS SYSTEM
Our neurosurgery team also is trained in the diagnosis and treatment of the entire nervous system, including your brain and spinal cord. We provide fast, accurate diagnosis and personalized treatment options to help you live your best life.
Your peripheral nerves are the links between your brain and spinal cord, and the rest of your body. Our team delivers individualized care for nerve pain, tingling and numbness so you can quickly return to an active, healthy and happy life filled with your favorite activities.
