Spine Surgery

Minimally invasive spine surgery is the performance of surgery through a small incision.

It has developed out of the desire to effectively treat disorders of the spinal discs with minimal muscle related injury, and with rapid recovery.

Watch Christopher Paramore, MD perform a minimally invasive lumbar fusion.

 

Brain Tumors

Many primary brain tumors are benign, which means that they remain in the part of the brain in which they started and do not spread into and destroy other areas of the brain tissue.

If a benign tumor can be removed successfully it should not cause any further problems.

Cerebral Vascular Surgery

Cerebral aneurysms are defects in the wall of a blood vessel, an out pouching with an abnormally thin wall.

A rupture of the aneurysm causes bleeding (subarachnoid hemorrhage). Subarachnoid hemorrhage from cerebral aneurysms affects about 10 out of 100,000 people per year. About 5% of the population harbors a cerebral aneurysm.
