Neurosurgery

NGPG Neurosurgery’s board-certified neurosurgeons provide high-quality care and the latest treatment options for patients with neurological conditions.

Surgical Treatments

NGPG offers the following surgical procedcures for neurological conditions:

Deep brain stimulation

Deep brain stimulation is a neurosurgical treatment that has been shown to provide significant improvements for otherwise treatment-resistant movement disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease. Learn more.

Discectomy

Discectomy is the most typical surgery for a herniated disc. During a discectomy, surgeons remove all or part of the damaged intervertebral disc. Most patients with a herniated disc respond well to non-surgical treatments, but if several months have passed without relief, your doctor may recommend surgery. Learn more.

Minimally invasive surgery

Whereas some conditions require open surgery, which has a longer recovery time, others can be treated by using minimally invasive techniques, which result in smaller incisions, shorter hospital stays, less pain after surgery, and fewer complications. Neurosurgeons often use minimally invasive techniques in brain or spine surgery.

Stereotactic radiosurgery

Stereotactic radiosurgery is a minimally invasive technique that uses 3D imaging to target high doses of radiation to affected areas in the brain or spine. This type of surgery requires no incisions and has a minimal impact on the surrounding healthy tissue.

Conditions We Treat

Some of the conditions that may benefit from neurosurgical treatment include:

  • Brain and spinal cord tumors
  • Epilepsy
  • Vascular disorders, such as aneurysms and stroke
  • Peripheral nerve damage
  • Carpel tunnel syndrome
  • Trigeminal neuralgia
  • Back and neck pain
  • Degenerative disc disease (e.g., herniated discs)
