State of the Art NeurosurgerySince 1997

GHNC brings together specialists, physicians, and modern technology to treat neurological conditions for the individual.

What is a Neurosurgeon?

Many think that neurosurgeons are doctors who only operate on the brain, but they are much more than that. Neurosurgeons spend years learning to evaluate, investigate, and treat patients both nonsurgically and surgically with conditions of the central nervous system, peripheral nervous system, autonomic nervous system, and all the structures surrounding them such as the spine and skull.

Neurosurgeons spend approximately 7 to 8 years after medical school becoming specialized.

These cases can either be nontraumatic or traumatic depending on the case. It’s important to know that neurosurgeons are trained to operate in every part of the human body and are highly specialized and required to not only maintain their medical and surgical skills, but to integrate those with fast moving and complicated technology. Our GHNC neurosurgeons recommend you receive a full comprehensive evaluation because they believe that surgery should always be the last option.

GHNC is defined by its continuous technological innovations in surgery. We utilize the latest operating techniques in place of outdated "open" surgery procedures to remove tumors, relieve chronic pain, and treat vascular disorders and diseases. These new methods are less invasive and have proven to produce even better outcomes and recovery times for our patients.
