Washington University neurosurgeons treat adult and pediatric patients with disorders of the nervous system, spine, brain and skull. Our neurosurgeons provide compassionate care to all patients. We are experts in several conditions including the following:

  • Brain tumors
  • Aneurysms
  • Arteriovenous malformation (AVM)
  • Stroke
  • Degenerative disc disease of the spine
  • Nerve compression syndrome, including trigeminal neuralgia
  • Carotoid artery blockage
  • Pituitary tumors
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Optic nerve conditions

Washington University is proud to provide superior neurological care in both adult and pediatric patients. Our neurosurgeons frequently conduct research to better understand neurological disorders and offer the best treatments for those disorders. Our services include the following:

  • Cerebrovascular surgery
  • Cortical mapping, which shows the surgeon where essential functions are located in the brain, so the surgeon will avoid cutting through these areas; identifies the area of the brain causing seizures
  • Craniosynostosis
  • Epilepsy surgery
  • Functional neurosurgery
  • Gamma knife
  • Intraoperative angiography, or the use of blood vessel x-rays during surgery to enhance outcomes for aneurysms or arteriovenous malformation surgery
  • Movement disorder surgery–surgical implantation of deep brain stimulators to treat Parkinson’s Disease and certain types of tremor
  • Multidisciplinary Pituitary Center
  • Pediatric neurosurgery
  • Radiosurgery
  • Skull base surgery
  • Spine surgery
  • Stereo neurosurgery, which is computer-assisted guidance that allows the placement of biopsy tools or electrodes deep in the brain
  • Surgical navigation, or use of computers to plan precise approaches to areas of the brain during surgery
  • Trauma surgery
