A Team Approach to Care

Experienced neurologists on Southwest General’s Medical Staff offer consultative, diagnostic and therapeutic services. They work collaboratively with specialists from many disciplines, including radiology, orthopedic surgery, pulmonology and more, to assure that patients receive comprehensive, state-of-the-art care in a timely manner for optimal outcomes.

State-of-the-Art Neurological Care

Skilled neurosurgeons on Southwest General’s Medical Staff use advanced technology and techniques to perform minimally invasive surgeries. Minimally invasive procedures use smaller incisions—in most cases only about an inch—which helps to reduce damage to sensitive tissues, lessen pain and scarring, shorten hospital stays and speed recovery. Minimally invasive surgery may be used to treat a variety of spinal conditions, including degenerative disc conditions, herniated discs in the back or neck, fractures, spinal stenosis and others.
