Neurological surgeons (neurosurgeons) provide diagnosis and treatment to patients with injury to or diseases of, the brain, spine or peripheral nerves. A neurosurgeon may provide either surgical or non-surgical care depending on the nature of the injury or illness.
At Wake Forest Baptist, many of our neurosurgeons are world-leaders in minimally-invasive techniques and MRI-guided laser surgeries. We have one of the nation's leading Gamma Knife Centers and are one of the few centers in the country using Deep Brain Stimulation in the treatment of movement disorders, brain tumors, Tourette syndrome and depression. Our neurosurgeons also specialize in complex spinal surgeries, surgical management of epilepsy and comprehensive stroke care.
We are proud to have 2 board-certified and fellowship-trained pediatric neurosurgeons.
