Spinal Surgery
Spinal Surgery

Spinal surgery can occur anywhere along a person's vertebral column. The spinal areas included are cervical (neck), thoracic (upper back), or lumbar (lower back).

Minimally Invasive Peripheral Nerve Surgery
Peripheral Nerve Surgery

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition where a ligament protecting the peripheral nerve going into your hand (Carpal Tunnel) has become thickened, causing compression or entrapment of the nerve.


Minimally Invasive Surgery
Minimally Invasive Surgery

This is spinal surgery that is done with smaller incisions, less blood loss, less operative time, and less pain to the patient than a standard open operation.


We offer the very latest expertise and options for Minimally Invasive Surgery, as well as the experience to know when more invasive and extensive procedures are needed. With minimally invasive surgery, our patients tend to have quicker recovery times and less discomfort.

Cranial surgery is usually done for patients with brain tumors. Surgery that is performed on the skull is usually referred to as craniotomy. This surgery involves temporarily opening the skull to allow for operation on or around the brain.
