NEUROSURGERY IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD
Having a neurological problem can be frightening. At Townsen Memorial Hospital, we understand the confusion and pain you may be facing. Fortunately, our skilled medical care team is well-versed in handling all types of neurological problems.
Sometimes people confuse a neurologist for a neurosurgeon. However, a neurologist limits their practice to the nervous system and does not physically operate on a patient, while a neurosurgeon does. Additionally, neurosurgery is a valuable role in medicine because it works to protect and heal the brain. At Townsen Memorial Hospital, we require our neurosurgeons to go through rigorous and extensive training to ensure our patients receive the best care possible.
Neurosurgery is a type of surgery performed on the nervous system, more specifically the brain and spinal cord. Our neurosurgeons are medically trained specialists who can provide a comprehensive treatment plan to help alleviate your pain and get you back to normal as soon as possible. Ultimately, we recommend a consultation with one of our staff members if you are experiencing or have experienced any of the following:
- Head injuries
- Chronic pain
- Nerve injuries
- Traumatic Brain Surgery
Here at Townsen Memorial Hospital, we understand that there is more than one kind of condition that may require neurosurgery. Through our imaging services, specifically a CT or MRI scan, we get detailed images of a patient’s problem. This allows us to create an individualized treatment plan that will best serve each unique patient. Additionally, our experienced medical care team has extensive experience in performing the following:
- Pediatric Neurosurgery
- Neuro-oncology (the management of brain and spinal tumors)
