Presence Saint Jospeh Medical Center was named on the list of 101 Hospitals with Great Spine and Neurosurgery Programs by Becker’s Orthopedic, Spine and Pain Review
Neurosurgery is the neuroscience specialty that focuses on the surgical treatment of the brain, spinal cord and nervous system.
PSJMC neurosurgeons perform all types of surgery ranging from simple procedures to relieve pressure on nerves to complex, computer-guided radiosurgery to remove tumors that were considered inoperable just a few years ago.
Because we have some of the top specialists in the country, we are able to offer advanced procedures that aren't often found outside academic medical centers, such as conducting brain surgery while patients are awake. This revolutionary surgery allows us to more accurately remove tumors located near key brain functions while minimizing the chance of damage and protecting speech and memory.
We also have expertise in minimally invasive procedures that simplify treatment and speed recovery. For spinal surgery, PSJMC Neuroscience Institute is one of the few programs in the country where neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons work side-by-side during spinal surgeries to help achieve the best results in restoring movement and reducing pain.
Neuroendovascular intervention is the neuroscience subspecialty that uses minimally invasive procedures to treat complex problems of blood vessels in the head, neck, and spine.
Our neuroendovascular interventionists use advanced imaging technology to thread tiny catheters through arteries and veins so they treat condition from inside the body, instead of having to do conventional surgery. These minimally invasive techniques provide incredible accuracy for more effective treatment while shortening recovery time.
PSJMC Neuroscience Institute has internationally renowned experts in neuroendovascular intervention who work with a specially trained and highly experienced team. Using start-of-the-art imaging and surgical equipment, they achieve excellent results in treating strokes, aneurysms, complex malformations of brain arteries (AVMs), strokes and brain tissue damaged by injury or disease.
Some of the conditions we treat through neurosurgery and neuroendovascular intervention include:
•· Brain Injuries and Tumors
•· Epilepsy and Seizures
•· Nerve Conditions and Injuries
•· Spine Injuries and Malformations
•· Traumatic Injury
