Neurosurgery is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of conditions, illnesses and injuries involving the nervous system and its supporting structures. The nervous system is the most complex and highly organized body system. It receives information from the sensory organs via nerves, transmits the information through the spinal cord, and processes it in the brain.
The brain is arguably the most important organ in the human body. It controls and coordinates actions and reactions, allows us to think and feel, and enables us to have memories and feelings – all the things that make us human. When you think about it, your spine is pretty darn impressive. It makes it so you’re able to bend and move in all sorts of directions and, without it, you’d be unable to keep yourself upright. Your spine also protects your spinal cord, which is the bundle of nerves that connects your brain to the rest of your body.
When patients are often referred to the Neurosurgeon, their initial thoughts are one of fear and conflict to actually seek help. I plan to stamp out this misconception and embrace a philosophy to appropriately diagnose your condition and guide you to the most beneficial comprehensive treatment.
Seeing the Neurosurgeon DOES NOT IMPLY SURGERY!
Embracing a philosophy of conservative therapy first, we encourage the use of non-invasive treatments such as medications and physical therapy. Most people can find significant, if not complete, relief through such measures.
My goal is to reduce or abolish your pain, get you back to work, return you to a state of confidence and independence and improve the quality of your life. Our aim is to give you the best possible outcome with the lowest risk. We believe every patient deserves to be compassionately treated as a unique individual with a unique set of problems needing attention
