Providing Neurosurgery Care Close to Home
UnityPoint Clinic Neurosurgery offers conservative management of spinal conditions, surgical intervention when clinically indicated and emergent intervention when critical.
Now, thanks to minimally invasive techniques, you can expect a shorter recovery time, which allows you to get back to activities and work quicker.
As the only neurosurgical practice in Dubuque, we integrate your care with other providers and departments – such as Pain Management, Physical Therapy, Orthopedics and Neurology – for a more comprehensive approach to your care and recovery.
When to See a Neurosurgeon
A neurosurgeon treats brain and spinal cord conditions. Your primary care provider may refer you to a neurosurgeon if you are experiencing symptoms such as muscle weakness, loss of feeling, seizures, pain or paralysis. You may also see a neurosurgeon if imaging shows a brain or spinal cord abnormality, such as a brain bleed, aneurysm, brain or spine injury/tumor or degenerative disc disease.
Our care team specializes in spinal conditions and their treatment, specifically minimally invasive spine surgery. Spinal disease/disorders can be very complex. Patients may have different symptoms, pain and treatment plans. Some may not require surgery, while for others it may be the only option. Our team works closely with members of the medical community, including the pain clinic and therapies, to find the best solution for each patient. A doctor’s referral is required to be seen at UnityPoint Clinic Neurosurgery.
