NEUROSURGERY

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 nonoperative and operative treatment plans. Each plan is designed to provide timely, innovative care and return you to optimum health.

NON-OPERATIVE

Non-operative measures include chiropractic care, Sanexas therapy, stem cells, physical therapy, at-home exercises, epidural steroid injections, facet blocks and other pain management options. The Invictus Healthcare facilities offer imaging such as MRI (contrast, non-contrast and arthogram) and X-Ray. 

MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGERY

Minimally invasive surgery outcomes result in a quicker recovery from surgery and less pain. 

 

It is performed through a small incision rather than a large, open incision that traditional surgeons use. Through this small incision, the surgeon is able to work through a tube with the assistance of a microscope to perform the surgery. This leads to less trauma to muscles, nerves and tissues, less bleeding, scarring, hospital time and trauma to organs. With a lesser amount of pain, patients are able to reduce the amount of narcotics taken after surgery. 

The purpose 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.
