Generally, most people think of neurosurgery as brain surgery - but it is so much more! Neurosurgery is a medical specialty that diagnoses and treats patients with injuries, diseases or disorders to the brain, spinal cord, spinal column and peripheral nerves within all parts of the body. Although the word surgery is in neurosurgery, there are many conservative, non-surgical treatment plans available to patients.
WHAT IT IS
Neurosurgery is a highly specialized branch of the medical field concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of the entire nervous system. Our neurosurgeon, Dr. Gregory L. Wilson, provides both operative and non-operative management within the scope of neurosurgery.
WHY IT IS DONE
At Invictus Healthcare we seek conservative answers to each patient’s unique challenges and offer both non-operative and operative treatment plans. Each plan is designed to provide timely, innovative care and return you to optimum health.
Non-operative measures include physical therapy, epidural steroid injections, facet blocks, and pain management. The Invictus Healthcare facilities offer testing and treatment including Digital X-ray, MRI, EMG testing, as well as injection treatments.
MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGERY
The goal of minimally invasive surgery is to stabilize the vertebral bones and spinal joints and to relieve the pressure being applied to the spinal nerves. This relieves problems that have resulted from conditions such as spinal instability, bone spurs, herniated discs, or spinal tumors.
Surgery is performed in a local hospital under general anesthesia. In the case of spine surgery, minimally invasive techniques are used reducing damage to the body and is aimed at a more rapid recovery.
