UnityPoint Clinic Neurosurgery – Waterloo

We offer 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.

In addition, we're integrating your care with other providers and departments such as pain management, physical therapy, physical medicine rehab, orthopedics and neurology for a more comprehensive approach to your care and recovery.

We provide treatment to injured workers and aim for a faster recovery to minimize employment loss. Our staff will work with your insurance and case managers, which allows you to focus on recovery.
