Neurosurgery is surgery of the nervous system. It includes the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and disorders of the brain, spinal cord and spinal column, and peripheral nerves within all parts of the body.
Many patients are fearful of neurosurgery, but rest assured. The team at Deaconess has the knowledge and experience to handle these complex and delicate cases. Our board-certified neurosurgeons, pain specialists, credentialed nurses, and other medical professionals use the latest technology and training to give patients the best surgical outcome possible.
That expertise extends beyond the operating room into the recovery phase. After surgery, patients stay on an inpatient unit dedicated to the care and treatment of neurological patients. Nurses assigned to these units completed special training to maximize the level of care and support provided to these patients.
Together, our experience and equipment can lead to less pain, shorter surgery times and faster recoveries.
