Neurological Surgery is a subspecialty focused on the diagnosis and treatments of diseases and conditions affecting the brain, spinal cord and nerves. Our comprehensive program encompasses diagnostic and treatment options for multiple conditions ranging from genetic to traumatic. Palm Beach Neuroscience Institute’s neurological surgeons are experienced in evaluating and treating a wide range of neurological conditions.
Some of these conditions include:
- Herniated Disc
- Spinal Stenosis
- Neck and Arm Pain
- Back and Leg Pain
- Brain and Pituitary Tumors
- Aneurysms and AVMs
- Spine Tumors
- Trigeminal Neuralgia
Our team is dedicated to providing advanced treatment options including minimally invasive surgical options. These advanced treatments allow for procedures to be performed through smaller incisions with less tissue disruption which can shorten the recovery time.
Some neurological surgeons specialize in spinal surgery. The spine protects multiple elements including the spinal cord and nerve roots. The spinal cord essentially acts as an extension of the brain delivering signals from the brain to the arms and legs. Damage or changes to the spinal column including herniated discs and compression fo the spinal cord or nerve roots can result in significant pain, weakness and numbness indicating or leading to nerve damage.
Some of the procedures that a neurological spine surgeon may perform include:
- Neck Surgery for Disc Herniations and Stenosis
- Minimally Invasive Lumbar Surgery
- Cyberknife Radiosurgery / Stereotactic Radiosurgery
- Laser Brain Tumor Treatment
- Disc Replacement / Arthroplasty
- Minimally Invasive Microsurgery
- Non-fusion Decompressive Surgery
