Advanced Neurosurgery for Brain and Spine Disorders

We offer a broad range of surgeries for brain and spine diseases, recommending minimally invasive treatments whenever possible for an easier recovery. Our goal is to help you return to your life as quickly and safely as possible.

Our neurosurgeons care for:

  • Brain and nervous system cancers
  • Brain and spinal tumors
  • Brain injuries and trauma
  • Cerebrovascular diseases, including hemorrhages and aneurysms
  • Neck pain and lower back pain
  • Spinal cord injuries and spine fractures

Minimally invasive spine surgery

Neurosurgeons at Wellington Regional Medical Center specialize in minimally invasive spine surgery for sciatica, lumbar spinal stenosis, and other back and neck conditions. In fact, we are designated as a Center of Excellence in both robotic and minimally invasive surgery by the Surgical Review Corporation (SRC).

Image-guided brain tumor surgery

We use sophisticated surgical technology to treat benign (noncancerous) and malignant (cancerous) brain tumors. The StealthStation™ neuronavigation system provides 3D imaging and real-time tracking, much like a GPS, to help your surgeon perform brain tumor surgery with exceptional precision and accuracy. This approach minimizes damage to healthy brain tissue and can allow for a quicker recovery.

Clipping and endovascular coiling for brain aneurysms

We offer both open and minimally invasive procedures for cerebral aneurysms, which are weakened areas of blood vessels in your brain that put you at risk for stroke or life-threatening bleeding. Our neurosurgeons and neurointerventionalists specialize in:

  • Aneurysm clipping: We do a craniotomy (open brain surgery) to place a metal clip across the aneurysm to reinforce it and prevent it from rupturing.
  • Endovascular aneurysm coiling: We insert a catheter into a blood vessel in your groin and guide it to the brain aneurysm. Your surgeon threads a guide wire and soft metal coil through the catheter, implanting the coil in the aneurysm to fill and reinforce the weakened area.

Comprehensive Neurology Services

Neurologists at Wellington Regional Medical Center help people with neurologic disorders manage pain and find relief from debilitating symptoms. We offer comprehensive diagnostic testing, including 24-hour electroencephalograms (EEGs) for epilepsy and neuroimaging. Our specialists draw on a range of treatments, including medication and rehabilitation, to help patients achieve the highest possible quality of life.

Neurological conditions we diagnose and treat include:

  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  • Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease
