Neurosurgery is the surgical discipline concerned with diagnosis and surgical treatment of disorders of the central and peripheral nervous system including congenital anomalies, trauma, tumors, vascular disorders, infections of the brain or spine, stroke, or degenerative diseases of the spine. Highly trained neurosurgical specialists are on-staff at Summa Health's Akron Campus.

Our team treats a full range of neurological disorders in the areas of:

  • Cerebrovascular - aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), and stroke
  • Neuro-oncology (brain tumors)
  • Spinal neurosurgery
  • Functional and epilepsy neurosurgery
  • General neurosurgery
  • Trigeminal neuralgia and nerve compression syndromes
  • Peripheral nerve injury

Neurosurgery advances on a daily basis, with surgical techniques being discovered and perfected. Minimally invasive techniques are being developed to help minimize stress on the brain and body during surgery, and to enable the patient to recover more quickly and easily.
