Through advanced technology and experience, the IU School of Medicine Department of Neurological Surgery spine specialists are finding new and effective surgical and non-surgical ways to care for the spine.
As neurosurgeons, these faculty spine specialists have a unique understanding of how the bones of the spinal column not only support the back but also protect the delicate, innervated spinal cord. They have a deep knowledge of the interconnections among the many nerves and the roles nerves play when problems with movement and pain arise.
With acute insight to how the spine and the brain work together, these surgeon educators bring clinical expertise of diagnosing and treating disorders and deformities of the spine to teaching environments for the benefit of future physicians and patients. Plus, as national leaders and teachers in Image Guidance, these faculty surgeons were among the first groups in the United States to pioneer the use of the STEALTH/ISO-C system for cervical, thoracic and spine surgeries.
