The Center’s expert team of neurosurgeons possesses a diverse range
of academic experience and training in minimally invasive techniques for
spinal and cranial surgery. SCCNS’ surgeons perform some of the
most complex operations for the treatment of skull base, peripheral nerve
and movement disorders on the West Coast. To keep pace with the ever-evolving
field of neurosurgery and spine, SCCNS’ surgeons are principal investigators
in the latest clinical research studies involving minimally invasive surgical
procedures and devices. In addition, they serve as thought leaders for
the development of endoscopic and minimally invasive techniques for spinal,
cranial and epilepsy surgery that are dramatically reducing operative
times and enhancing outcomes.
SCCNS also boasts a multidisciplinary approach that provides patients with
non-surgical treatment options. With its comprehensive pain management
and physical therapy programs, the SCCNS offers novel solutions to back
and neck problems, complex pain syndromes, and impaired mobility. In specific
cases involving failed back syndrome and post-surgery syndrome, the Center’s
team educates patients about the clinically proven techniques that dramatically
improve quality of life, minimize the use of narcotics, and restore independence.
AT SCCNS we are committed to providing quality healthcare to our community
in a caring, compassionate and dignified manner while maintaining the
highest ethical standards.
"By combining compassion and innovation, we are enhancing surgical
outcomes and significantly improving the quality of life for our patients."
