Neurosurgery refers to any surgical procedure to the parts of the nervous system, including the brain and spinal cord.

What Does a Neurosurgeon Do?

A neurosurgeon specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of injuries and disorders of the nervous system. He or she provides special brain and spine procedures and surgeries. Your UnityPoint Clinic neurosurgeon provides treatment for nervous system trauma, surgical clipping for brain aneurysms and even certain operations to help mitigate psychiatric diseases.

A neurosurgeon is a provider with an extensive education in general medicine and surgery, as well as a neurosurgery residency, board certification in neurological surgery and often, a specialized neurosurgery fellowship.

  • Craniotomy for trauma and brain tumors
  • Acute epidural/subdural/intracranial hemorrhage treatment
  • Transsphenoidal removal of pituitary tumors
  • Skull fracture treatment and shunt placement
  • Cervical discectomy and fusion
  • Cervical corpectomy for stenosis
  • Kyphoplasty for spinal fracture
  • Peripheral nerve surgery
  • Spinal cord tumor removal
