John Muir Health neurosurgeons provide care to patients from throughout California as leaders in trauma neurosurgery. For this reason, our medical centers regularly receive transfers from other hospitals in the state.
Advanced Techniques. A Wealth of Experience.
We constantly update our neurosurgical capabilities to make sure we are delivering the “latest and greatest” service to our patients.
John Muir Health neurosurgeons work in partnership with their physician colleagues in other disciplines to offer expertise in a substantial range of neurologic and neurosurgical conditions. They are aided by outstanding, highly-skilled support staff and equipped with the latest technologies and most advanced techniques to ensure our patients are receiving the best care.
For the treatment of spinal disorders like degenerative disc disease and herniated discs, we use minimally invasive spinal surgical techniques whenever possible, which reduces the level of pain and recovery time for our patients. We have a neurosurgeon available 24/7 to treat emergency cases like traumatic brain injuries and strokes. We use image-guided technology for surgery in which we import functional and metabolic data to guide the surgery and help us remove tumors without impairing key functions of the brain. Types of treatment we provide include:
- Cerebrovascular disorders
- Cortical resections for gliomas
- Deep brain stimulation (DBS)
- Peripheral nerve disorders
- Primary brain tumors
- Spinal tumors and spine surgery
- Stereotactic radiosurgery
- Surgery for pituitary tumors
John Muir Health Medical Centers are ranked among the Best Hospitals for Neurology & Neurosurgery by U.S. News & World Report in California.
