What is neurosurgery?

Neurosurgery is an area of medicine that specializes in diagnosing and treating conditions that affect the brain, spinal cord, spinal column, and peripheral nervous system.

The team also includes neurosurgeons with advanced training in neurosurgical oncology, pediatric neurosurgery, and minimally invasive brain and spine procedures.
