Medical advances in the field of neurosurgery have resulted in microscopic technologies. Some forms of brain surgeries, including resection of soft tissue abnormalities, can now be done through smaller openings. This means tiny incisions, less pain, shorter hospital stays, and quicker recovery–some of the important reasons why we’re one of the best neurosurgery hospitals in the Bay Area Houston region.

Endovascular neurosurgery is minimally-invasive brain surgery and may be utilized in place of more invasive procedures, which require opening the skull or spinal column. With the aid of radiology imaging, small catheters are thread through an artery in the groin to blood vessels in the brain. Once in place, medications or mechanical devices can be utilized from inside the blood vessel. Endovascular neurosurgery may be used for:

  • Stroke intervention
  • Arteriovenous malformations
  • Carotid artery stenting
  • Cerebral aneurysms
  • Intracranial stenosis

Additional neurosurgery procedures available at our hospital include:

  • Craniotomy
  • Tumor removal
  • Pain management, including nerve blocks and epidural injections
  • Ventriculo-atrial and peritoneal shunts
  • Herniated disc removal, allograft, and plating
  • Median, ulnar, and lateral femoral cutaneous nerve decompressions
  • NICO
