If you or someone you love is facing a serious neurological condition, you want the best care from doctors you trust. Neurosurgery is the surgical specialty that deals with the nervous system, including the brain and spinal cord. SSM Health Neurosciences neurosurgeons are leaders in surgical procedures for stroke, aneurysms and more. In addition, our surgeons use non-invasive Cyberknife® radiosurgery to successfully treat what otherwise would be inoperable brain tumors with pinpoint accuracy.
