Symptoms and conditions treated

Optum’s neurosurgery department specializes in treating a wide range of conditions and disorders, including:

  • Complex, degenerative scoliosis and tumor etiologies
  • Neuro-oncology (brain tumors)
  • Peripheral nerve (such as carpal tunnel)
  • Functional (such as trigeminal neuralgia)
  • Many congenital issues (pediatric care related to birth defects)
  • Treatments for dementia, including shunts

We work in close collaboration with the Department of Neurosurgery at Columbia University for more complex neurosurgical disorders including cerebrovascular conditions, such as aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations, and skull-based tumors.

Treatment

Surgery is not necessarily the first option, and when able, we are committed to  treating your condition with non-invasive or minimally invasive techniques.

Our team works with: orthopedic surgeons, general surgeons, pain management specialists, neurologists, oncologists, as well as physical therapists to address your condition with a highly personalized, multidisciplinary approach.

Surgical treatments include:

  • Open and minimally invasive surgery for the spine and brain
  • Stereotactic radiosurgery (Gamma Knife and Novalis)
  • Image-guided procedures for both the brain and spine

Medical care and help

Our team offers exceptional care and all-encompassing support for you as you prepare and recover. Along with our highly specialized neurosurgeons, our dedicated nursing staff for neurosurgery patients is here to make sure all of your needs are communicated and addressed.
