Neuro-Spine Surgery

Neuro-Spine Surgery

The Neurosurgical Spine Program at Good Samaritan Hospital

A spinal injury or condition can be terribly painful or even debilitating, affecting every aspect of your life. But for many people, the thought of surgery is simply too overwhelming. They try to cope with their condition and end up spending years in chronic discomfort.

The simple truth is, with today’s advancements in spinal surgery, you have more viable options than ever.

The Good Samaritan Hospital Neurosurgical Spine Program offers a full scope of surgical care—including minimally invasive surgery, spine instrumentation and microsurgery—for virtually every spinal condition or injury. Every day, we treat patients of all ages for herniated discs, spinal tumors, trauma and degenerative diseases.

Our Approach

When it comes to something as important as back surgery, we take a conservative approach, based on careful evaluation of your history, the pain and limitations you’re experiencing and what we see through highly advanced imaging technology.

What we find is that most of our patients are perfectly suited to minimally invasive techniques—tiny incisions, with a much faster recovery time and less pain. Often, when patients come to us even for a second opinion, they end up staying, because they want and appreciate the approach we take. We can help you, too.
