Division of Neurosurgery
Our Division of Neurosurgery provides comprehensive neurosurgical care to patients with cranial, spinal and other neurological disorders. Our highly trained team of neurosurgeons has extensive clinical expertise in all aspects of general neurosurgery, including neuro-oncology, spine, movement disorders, cerebrovascular disease, and pain. We utilize advanced medical technology to perform complex surgeries and, where possible, minimally-invasive options to treat neurosurgical conditions. We often take a collaborative approach, working alongside surgical, oncology and pain management colleagues to provide our patients with the most thorough assessment and treatment options. Our philosophy is compassionate and patient-centered care involving a multidisciplinary team approach that includes our physicians, physician assistant, nurse practitioner and nursing staff. We strive to help educate our patients about the best individualized surgical and non-surgical approaches for their conditions to improve their quality of life.
We are deeply engaged in clinical and basic research projects at the Scripps Clinic and with collaborators at Scripps Research (formerly TSRI), Scripps Translational Sciences Institute and the University of California, San Diego.
