Neurosurgery

Tenet Florida Physician Services delivers the best care possible for patients who require neurosurgery. Our neurosurgeons are medical doctors who specialize in prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of disorders of the nervous system including the brain, spinal cord, spinal column and peripheral nerves. Unlike an orthopaedic surgeon who repairs bones, a neurosurgeon performs surgery on the nervous system. Conditions treated by our experienced neurosurgeons and medical staff include:
  • Back and neck conditions
  • Brain conditions
  • Brain and spine injuries
  • Brain and spine tumors
  • Pain
  • Seizures
  • Movement disorders
  • Stroke
  • Pediatric head and spine conditions

When to See a Neurosurgeon?

After a neurologist evaluates your condition, he or she may refer you to a highly skilled neurosurgeon to review your case and the need to perform the surgery. Surgery may be the first step in treating conditions requiring surgery such as:
  • Dizziness and balance issues
  • Epilepsy
  • Tumors
  • Headache
  • Pain
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Stroke
  • Tremors

Some neurosurgeons specialize in specific types of surgery such as spine surgery while others treat only children or only adults. At Sunrise Medical Group, you’ll find a team of neurosurgery experts who work hand-in-hand with your primary care physician to provide an accurate diagnosis and begin the best treatment.
