Neurosurgery

Your Health. Your Hospital

While the majority of people think of brain surgery when they hear the word neurosurgery, this medical branch is much wider, including surgery to the spinal cord and the peripheral nerves throughout the entire body. Our neurosurgeons have vast experience and solid knowledge of the injuries, conditions and diseases affecting the nervous system and can perform numerous surgical procedures to alleviate the pain and discomfort of a patient struggling with head injury, back pain or trigeminal neuralgia.

Excellent Results, Easy Recovery

Because performing neurosurgery is a very challenging and tedious process, having a clear image of the injury, condition, or disease the patient is struggling with is crucial for surgeons who specialize in this branch of medicine.

For this reason, we will employ multiple tests and exams, which use state-of-the-art technology, to assign you a correct and accurate diagnosis.

Our skillful neurosurgeons will strive to use minimally invasive surgery whenever possible so that you can enjoy a faster recovery and a lower risk of postoperative complications.

The most common neurological injuries, conditions, and diseases we treat at Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital include:

Our Neurosurgeons Will Perform Minimally Invasive Surgery for a Speedy Recovery

Luckily, some patients who suffer from neurological injuries, conditions, or diseases are eligible for minimally invasive surgery, which allows the surgeon to operate with excellent precision and dexterity.

Undergoing minimally invasive surgery entails a low risk of postoperative complications, minimal discomfort and pain, and a shorter hospital stay.

However, it is important to note that not everyone is a good candidate for minimally invasive surgery, as some people benefit more from the traditional, open approach.

Some of the surgical procedures our neurosurgeons perform either traditionally or minimally invasive, are:

  • anterior cervical discectomy and fusion
  • arteriovenous  malformation resection
  • base of skull surgery
  • brain tumor excision
  • burr holes and craniotomy
  • carpal tunnel release
  • cervical spine surgery
  • coiling of aneurysms
  • embolization of tumors
  • lumbar decompressive laminectomy
  • lumbar microdiscectomy
  • spine surgery
  • peripheral nerve surgery
  • pituitary surgery
  • ulnar nerve decompression
