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.

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:
