Neurosurgery

Neurosurgery is a branch of medicine that deals with the surgical treatment of problems of the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves. Neurosurgeons undergo many years of rigorous training, including an average of fifteen years of higher education.

Providence neurosurgeons are highly trained and have access to some of the region’s best and latest imaging and diagnostic equipment, surgical suites and treatment facilities. They collaborate with a network of other specialists, therapists and medical professionals, providing patients a full spectrum of care, from diagnosis through treatment and recovery.
