Neurosurgery is surgery of the nervous system. Most people think of neurosurgery as brain surgery, but it is much more! It is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of patients with injury to, or diseases/disorders of the brain, spinal cord, spinal column and peripheral nerves within all parts of the body. Examples include disc herniations, degenerative spinal disorders, carpal tunnel and Chiari malformations to name a few.
Patients will have direct access to providers and when necessary, UVNN will expedite the coordination of patient care with an appropriate tertiary care center.
Appropriate patients may be offered surgical management at Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital, Gifford Medical Center or New London Hospital where craniotomies, spine surgeries and peripheral nerve surgeries are routinely performed.
