Neurosurgery is often associated primarily with brain surgery – which is a major part of this medical specialty – but neurosurgeons are actually concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of disorders that affect the entire nervous system. This includes the spinal column, spinal cord and peripheral nerves as well as the brain.
In the Department of Neurological Surgery at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute, we offer comprehensive, leading-edge care in all aspects of neurosurgery. Combining clinical care with research allows our physicians to convert discoveries into therapies, thereby enhancing this highly specialized field.
Our neurosurgeons are also institutional leaders of Ohio State’s Neurosciences Signature Program, thus ensuring that you benefit from the latest research and knowledge in related disciplines outside of neurosurgery.
