Neurosurgery

"We are the experts in Neurosurgery."

Neurosurgery is a medical specialty involving the surgical repair and treatment of the nervous system (brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves) as well as the spine, scalp and skull. Neurological disorders have the potential to be severely debilitating, and can often impact an individual’s quality of life. Because the brain and nervous system are so complex, identifying the best surgical solutions for patients is crucial to providing life-saving care.

At Loma Linda University Medical Center’s (LLUMC) Department of Neurosurgery, our expert neurosurgeons collaborate with a variety of other medical and surgical specialists including otolaryngologists, interventional radiologists, neurologists, general surgeons, pain management specialists and physiatrists. Our expert team also includes physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, nutritionists, case managers and social workers to address the full spectrum of problems that may affect our patients. These multidisciplinary teams use state-of-the-art technology and techniques to provide the optimal treatment for each individual patient.

The Department of Neurosurgery also ensures that patients receive appropriate guidance as they make decisions about their care. Extensive preoperative education, community seminars and hands-on interactive tools help patients regain their independence and demonstrate the Department’s commitment to healing individuals and not just surgically treating their medical condition.

The Department of Neurosurgery treats all forms of neurological conditions for children and adults. 

LLUMC’s Department of Neurosurgery physicians are committed to offering the best surgical treatment of brain and spine conditions. Our physicians have many years of experience and hold specialty certifications.
