The Neurosurgery program at Vanderbilt University Medical Center offers comprehensive care for a full range of neurological conditions, including brain and spine disorders. This care not only includes expert treatment, but also an understanding of the fear and concern you might be experiencing. Any neurological condition can be frightening. But we want you to know that there is hope and that, more often than not, there is something that can be done to help.
Our neurological and neurosurgery programs have received national accolades, including:
Our team of fellowship-trained neurosurgeons and a history of excellent outcomes are the reasons patients come to Vanderbilt to be treated for neurological conditions. Our doctors have undergone extensive training in neurosurgery and specialized procedures, enabling them to deliver the highest level of care. And they — along with our nurses and staff — do this with deepest levels of understanding and compassion.
Our neurosurgeons perform a significant number of complex surgeries each year, many of which require advanced surgical techniques and technologies.
To achieve the best possible results, many neurological conditions require treatment and input from a variety of specialty areas. At Vanderbilt, specialists — including ENTs, neuro-otologists, endocrinologists, neurologists, neuro-anesthesiologists, neuro-pathologists, trauma teams, and neuro critical care — are all right here and ready work with us so that we can provide the care you need.
Each of our private rooms has the latest technologies and safety provisions so that we can deliver the highest level of specialty care 24/7. We also have a state-of-the-art neurosurgical intensive care unit that’s equipped to manage even the most challenging cases.
Our doctors are leading research efforts focused on developing new and more effective neurosurgical options — including the creation of a next generation neurosurgical robot. Additionally, Vanderbilt was one of the first medical centers in the United States to implement deep brain stimulation, and we specialize in minimally invasive endoscopic and robotic surgeries.
We offer a full range of tests, treatments and services, including:
