Individualized health care

UnityPoint Health – Neurosurgery understands the distress a patient may feel whether they are suffering from nagging neck pain or facing the uncertainty of a serious diagnosis. Our goal is to handle each unique situation with compassion and thoughtfulness to ease the burden on patients and their families.

UnityPoint Health – Neurosurgery offers conservative management of spinal conditions, surgical intervention when clinically indicated and emergent intervention when critical. We also provide treatment to injured workers with a focus on expedited recovery to minimize employment loss. Our staff will work with your insurance and case managers and allow you to focus on recovery.
