The division of Neurosurgery at Kern Medical combines compassionate care, clinical expertise, and advanced technology to treat complex conditions of the brain, spine, and central nervous system. From detection to diagnosis and treatment, our board-certified neurologists, neurosurgeons, radiologists, and experienced nursing staff share a commitment to achieving the best possible clinical outcomes for every patient.

We understand it is stressful to consider surgery, but we only recommend a surgical approach when your condition progresses to a point where it cannot be managed through other methods. You can rely on our team of neurosurgeons to keep you informed about every step that will be taken in your treatment while providing an expert level of care. These physicians are familiar with many conditions affecting the nervous system, including brain disorders, tumors, stroke, degenerative spinal diseases, and much more.

Conditions We Treat:

  • Congenital malformations
  • Traumatic injuries, including skull fractures and brain bleeding
  • Tumors of the brain or spine
  • Vascular disorders
  • CNS infections, including meningitis and encephalitis
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Epilepsy (seizure disorder)
  • Movement disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease

Neurosurgery Technology

Neurosurgeons are highly trained in technical expertise and manual dexterity. They must use cutting-edge technologies to treat neurological disorders to create a “brain map,” a sort of GPS-like guide to the surgical team, that shows the surgeon where to operate. Equipped with tools such as CT and MRI scans, neurosurgeons are able to perform either traditional open surgeries or minimally invasive endoscopic surgical techniques. An example of conventional open surgery is craniotomy surgery, in which a section of the bone is removed to allow the surgeon access to treat traumatic injuries or to remove tumors.

Preparing for Your Neurosurgery Appointment

We understand how it is frightening to be referred to a neurosurgeon, especially in an emergency. In non-emergencies, you can get the most out of your visit with your neurosurgeon by taking notes regarding the time, severity, duration, and location of your symptoms. By explaining these things to your neurosurgeon, it enables them to order the correct tests and evaluations. While you are at your appointment, make sure to ask any questions so you can fully understand your condition and why it requires surgery to correct.
