Neurosurgery (or Neurological Surgery) is the medical specialty concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of disorders that affect the entire nervous system—including the brain, spinal column, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and extra-cranial cerebrovascular system.

It is a common misconception that neurosurgery focuses only on conditions associated with the brain, while in fact, over 70 percent of neurosurgery procedures involve treating spine and spinal cord health conditions. Neurosurgeons have the advanced training to understand the intricate relationship between the spine and the complex network of nerves that make up the spinal cord. Neck or back pain, pinched nerves, and numbness or weakness in the arms or legs are all conditions that can result from ruptured or bulging disks, arthritic bone, vertebral slippage, fractures, or infections.

Neurosurgeons at Tallahassee Neurological Clinic provide diagnostic, consultative, and therapeutic services to patients with all types of neurological problems for which surgery is indicated. All of our neurosurgeons are Board Certified in Neurosurgery and diplomats of the American College of Surgeons.
