Neurosurgical Services at CPMC
Neurosurgical services include neuro-oncology treatment for brain and spinal tumors, epilepsy surgery, aneurysm (stroke), as well as surgical interventions for back pain, spine disorders and disc diseases.
Spinal conditions are some of the most costly and painful musculoskeletal problems today. We offer comprehensive spine care provided by world-class experts.
Collaborating with radiation oncology specialists, neuro-oncologists use some of the most advanced neuroimaging, stereotactic radiosurgery, and image-guided stereotaxis for treating malignant tumors of the brain and spine.
Modern surgical options for treating cerebral aneurysms have vastly improved patient outcomes and recovery. Micro-neurosurgical clipping blocks the blood flow at the aneurysm neck using a tiny titanium clip, while endovascular coil embolization is a newer technique that eliminates aneurysms through tiny microcatheters using platinum microcoils.
Surgery for treating epilepsy has many different variations; temporal lobe resection, extratemporal cortical resection, and corpus callosal section are techniques that may be recommended for patients who will significantly benefit from the surgery.
