Vascular Disorders & Brain Conditions

Our surgeons are certified by the American Board of Neurological Surgery and the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons.  They have achieved an extraordinary level of knowledge and skill in neurosurgery and passed rigorous examinations proving their competence in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders or injuries to the brain, spinal cord or peripheral nerves (such as nerves in the hands or feet).  They are also clinical faculty members in the department of surgery at Michigan State University. Lansing Neurosurgery is a general neurosurgery practice treating patients from newborn to elderly with all varieties of brain and spinal disorders, from major trauma and disease to persistent pain.  This means you can be sure your care and the care of your loved ones is in the very best hands.

Brain and Vascular Disorders

Using the latest techniques and technologies, including non-invasive options, our surgeons treat a variety of brain disorders and injuries, including brain tumors, head and neck trauma and vascular diseases of the brain such as aneurysms and stroke. We have experience in treating a variety of disorders, including:

Brain Tumors: A mass of unnecessary and abnormal cells growing in the brain.

Cauda Equina SyndromeAn extreme version of nerve compression or inflammation of the nerves in the lower portion of the spinal canal.

Cavernous Malformation: Occurs when a blood-filled mass resembling a tumor, called a hemangioma, forms.
 
Cerebral Aneurysm: The dilation, bulging, or ballooning out of part of the wall of a vein or artery in the brain.
 
Chiari MalformationsStructural defects in the cerebellum, the part of the bran that controls balance.
 
Head Trauma: Occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain.
 
Hemorrhagic Stroke: Occurs when a blood vessel in the brain bursts, spilling blood into the spaces surrounding brain cells.
 
Hydrocephalus: Occurs when excess cerebrospinal fluid builds up within ventricles of the brain and may increase pressure within the brain.
