Board-certified neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons, practicing at PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center, treat patients with complex conditions and disorders of the brain, spine and spinal cord. This includes brain and spine tumors, aneurysms, back and neck pain, herniated discs and spinal fractures and injuries. Surgeries include minimally-invasive spine surgery, which can offer lower risk and faster recovery, and provides another option for some patients who are not good candidates for conventional spine surgery.
Neurosurgery technology at PeaceHealth St. Joseph provides for a high degree of surgical precision, including image-guided neurosurgery that gives surgeons exacting image detail to precisely plan the path of surgery at every point and verify the success of the procedure.
PeaceHealth St. Joseph collaborates with board-certified neurosurgeons as part of the Cascade Brain and Spine Center, providing nationally-recognized medical and surgical care of the spine and brain. Caregivers work together in multidisciplinary teams to provide excellent care for patients, including research, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation.
