At Tower Health, our neurosurgery program offers leading-edge care, right here in Southeastern Pennsylvania. Our team works closely with neurologists, neuro-critical care, neuro-hospitalists, neuroradiologists, oncologists, pain management specialist, rehab medicine, and other healthcare providers to develop the most complete and individualized treatment plans for you.

Innovative, comprehensive neurosurgical services.

Our highly trained surgeons focus on diagnosing and treating you with a specialized care plan to improve your function and quality of life. Types of neurosurgery we perform at Tower Health include:

  • Neurovascular surgery. Our vascular neurosurgeons diagnose and treat blood vessel disorders in the brain and spinal cord, including brain aneurysms, stroke, and carotid disease.
  • Functional neurosurgery and neuromodulation. Using implantable devices, we deliver electrical stimulation or medicine directly to the nervous system to treat various disorders and enhance your quality of life. Neuromodulation is often used for pain, movement disorders, and epilepsy.
  • Spine surgery. Our neurosurgeons have experience with a wide range of back and spine conditions, with an emphasis on minimally invasive techniques. Our goal is to restore as much function as possible and improve pain.
  • Neuro-oncology. Our team is closely integrated with the McGlinn Cancer Institute. Using the latest intraoperative neuronavigation technology and high powered microscopes, our surgeons can remove brain, skull base, pituitary, or spinal tumors in the safest way possible.
  • Radiosurgery. For patients that do not require open surgery, highly focused radiation beams are used to precisely target tumors to halt or shrink their growth with the goal of causing the least amount of damage to surrounding normal brain tissue.
  • Pediatric neurosurgery. The pediatric neurosurgeons at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children treat children of all ages with diseases and conditions of the brain, spine, and nervous system.
  • Trauma. Our neurosurgeons are at the front lines in managing traumatic injuries of the spine and brain. Our neurosurgeons repair vertebral column fractures of the spine, remove blood clots from the brain, and help with intensive care management of patients suffering brain and spinal cord injuries.
  • Peripheral nerve surgery. Our neurosurgeons offer surgery to patients with peripheral nerve problems such as carpel tunnel syndrome and ulnar nerve compression.

Using advanced technology for more precise surgery.

Surgery on the brain and spine requires a high degree of precision. At Tower Health, patients are cared for using the most advanced technologies available. This includes image guidance, intraoperative imaging, microscopic surgery, real-time neurophysiological monitoring, and endovascular procedures. The use of advanced technology means less damage to healthy tissue, better outcomes for you, and faster relief of symptoms.
