EvergreenHealth Neurosurgery provides state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment of injury or disorders affecting any portion of the nervous system including the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves.
Using the latest diagnostic technology, many cerebrovascular conditions such as aneurysm and vascular malformations can be successfully treated using balloons, catheters and stents.
Our program diagnoses and treats injuries or disorders of the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and extra-cranial cerebrovascular system.
The conditions we treat include:
Cerebrovascular and Endovascular Neurosurgery
Arteriovenous malformations (AVM) and AV Fistulas
Brain aneurysms (angiograms, embolization, coiling and clipping)
Moyamoya Disease (bypass procedure and EDAMS)
Brain and spine arteriovenous malformations/fistulas
Brain tumors (gliomas, metastasis, colloid cyst, arachnoid cyst and Meningiomas)
Carotid and vertebral artherosclerotic disease
Carotid artery stenosis
Carotid endarterectomies and carotid stenting
Cervical spine fusion
Dural arteriovenous fistulas
Endovascular treatment of Stroke
Intracranial artery stenosis
Spine degenerative disease (disc disease, herniated discs, back pain)
Subclavian artery stenosis
Stereotactic radiosurgery planning
Vertebral artery stenosis
Vertebral basilar disease
Craniotomy for tumor
Minimally-invasive, endoscopic brain tumor resections
Minimally invasive brain tumor embolization
Peripheral nerve sheath tumors resection
Pituitary tumor resection
Skull base tumor resection
Spinal tumor resection
Traumatic brain injury
Peripheral nerve entrapment syndromes
Surgical Treatment Options
Only a small percentage of people with spine, back and neck pain have conditions that require surgery.
If you’re one of the few people who do, a minimally invasive procedure can help reduce or eliminate your pain.
We specialize in minimally invasive surgery, which requires smaller incisions. This means less pain and a quicker recovery for you.
Other key benefits are:
- Little to no scarring
- Less damage to surrounding tissues
- Reduced pain
- Lower risk of infection
- Better long-term results
- Fewer complications and revisions
In minimally invasive surgery, we're able to access hard-to-reach areas through tiny incisions.
Using specialized instruments, we can see the exact positioning of the surgical instruments on a high-definition monitor.
These advanced tools, along with the surgeons’ expertise, mean we perform the procedures more accurately, with better results.
The most common minimally invasive procedures we perform include:
