Expert neurosurgical care
Sparks Health System’s highly trained neurosurgeons work with a multidisciplinary team of specialists in radiology, pain management and other specialties to provide the best approach for each patient. Specialized neurosurgery nurses and other clinicians are well equipped to attend to the special requirements of neurosurgery patients. We provide a full range of rehabilitation services to assist patients through recovery.
Our board-certified neurosurgeons have access to advanced imaging technology for care planning, and utilize state-of-the-art surgical technology to provide exceptional care, including:
- Non-invasive techniques – Stereotactic radiosurgery uses focused beams of radiation, rather than traditional surgical instruments, to treat brain tumors without a surgical incision. It is called “surgery” because offers a similar result as actual surgery.
- Minimally invasive options – Interventional radiology techniques — which use catheters with instruments or medications — such as angioplasty, stenting and embolization can be used to treat tumors, stroke and other cerebrovascular conditions.
- Intraoperative monitoring – Highly sophisticated monitoring equipment allows surgeons to identify changes in brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerve function before irreversible damage occurs.
