Neurosurgery

Treatment for Spine, Brain & Vascular Conditions

Our neurosurgeons provide specialized care for spine, brain, and vascular diagnoses either as a result of trauma or degenerative processes. In fact, our excellent neurosurgery and spine programs earned Winchester Medical Center a spot on Becker's Healthcare list of Top 100 Hospitals (2018). Below are some of the complex neurosurgical services Valley Health offers.

Spine

We provide total spine care through standard and minimally invasive approaches. All of our neurosurgeons are trained in new minimally invasive techniques including the extreme lateral interbody fusion (XLIF), which offers spinal surgery without a back incision. Spine services include treatment for:

  • Cervical and lumbar stenosis
  • Disc herniations and disc replacement
  • Spine trauma and stabilization
  • Spine and spinal cord tumors
  • Congenital spinal disorders in adults

Brain Tumor

We provide compassionate surgical services for patients diagnosed with primary and metastatic brain tumors. Using intraoperative brain mapping techniques we are able to remove brain tumors in the safest manner possible. Otherwise “inoperable” tumors in difficult areas of the brain can be removed safely with an “awake” craniotomy. Our neuroscience team and radiation oncologists are currently creating a radiosurgery program that will offer minimally invasive surgeries for many types of brain tumors. Surgeries available include:

  • Gliomas and glioblastoma
  • Meningiomas
  • Metastatic tumors
  • Pituitary Tumors

Functional

We can offer surgical solutions for a number of neurological symptoms that originate within the brain. Our neuroscience team has recently established a comprehensive Epilepsy Program and Deep Brain Stimulation Program. When medical therapies fail, we can provide surgical options to patients with:

  • Intractable epilepsy
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Essential tremor
  • Trigeminal Neuralgia
  • Hemi-facial Spasm

Nerve

We offer expert care for a number of problems affecting the nerves after they exit from the spine. Compressive neuropathies are often treated surgically on an outpatient basis. Peripheral nerve services include:

  • Carpal Tunnel Release
  • Ulnar Nerve Release or Transposition
  • Peroneal Neuropathy
  • Peripheral Nerve Tumors

Pain

Chronic pain can often be managed with medications. When medical management is ineffectual, patients may benefit from minor surgical procedures performed by our pain anesthesiologists. Innovative surgical options include:

  • Spinal Cord Stimulators
  • Intrathecal Pumps
  • Dorsal Root Entry Zone procedure
  • Cordotomy for cancer pain
  • Motor Cortex Stimulation

Trauma

Winchester Medical Center is a Level II Trauma Center, which means that our physicians are on call 24/7 to provide critical care and surgical services for traumatic brain and spine injuries. We have a dedicated neurological ICU staffed with nurses trained in critical care. Trauma services provided include:

  • Intracranial Pressure Monitoring
  • Burr Holes for Evacuation of Subdural Hematoma
  • Craniotomy for Evacuation of Hemorrhage
  • Decompressive Hemicraniectomy
  • Spinal Decompression and Stabilization
