Neurosurgery Treatments and Technologies
Offering the Most Advanced Neurosurgical Technologies and Procedures
Our experienced neurosurgeons provide a full spectrum of neurosurgical services for adult patients using leading-edge technologies and approaches.
New Epilepsy Treatment
Jennifer Casto had epilepsy seizures that worsened over time. But new technology used by OhioHealth neurosurgeons has kept her seizure free.
Neurologic Diseases and Conditions We Treat
Our highly-skilled neurosurgeons treat a wide range of neurologic diseases and conditions, including:
- Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs)
- Brain and spine trauma care
- Brain tumors
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Cerebrovascular disease
- Complex reconstructive spine surgery
- Dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs)
- Endoscopic treatment of pituitary neoplasms
- Minimally invasive spine surgery (degenerative and oncologic)
- Nerve injuries
- Peripheral nerve
- Spine tumors and conditions
- Trigeminal neuralgia [RSL1]
To treat these neurological conditions, OhioHealth neurosurgeons perform a range of neurosurgeries – from the most common procedures to the latest minimally-invasive, innovative techniques.
Cerebral angiography – a radiology procedure to examine blood flow
Carotid artery angioplasty/stenting – a procedure to open a narrow carotid artery
Endovascular coiling – the insertion of a thin, metal wire inside a brain aneurysm to block blood flow
Thrombolytic therapy – a procedure that utilizes medication to unblock a blood clot
Epilepsy treatment - may include stereotactic EEG, implants for long-term monitoring, respective surgeries, disconnection surgeries, vagal nerve stimulator (VNS) implants, responsive neurostimulator (RNS) implants
Surgery to remove brain tumors, pituitary tumors or spine tumors (benign or malignant)
- Peripheral Nerve
Surgery to relieve nerve compression, repair damaged nerves or perform tumor resections
- Skull Base
Endoscopic anterior skull base surgery – a non-invasive procedure that removes a tumor through the nose cavity rather than an incision in the skull
Spine fusion – a procedure to relieve pain from spinal instability
Laminectomy – a procedure to relieve pain from pressure on the spinal cord caused by spinal stenosis, ruptured discs, herniated discs and related conditions.
Kyphoplasty – a minimally invasive procedure to repair spinal compression fractures
Vertebroplasty – a minimally invasive technique to relieve pain caused by compression fractures
Open Reduction and Internal Fixation – a surgical procedure to align the spine using X-rays and direct examination[RSL1]
The Latest Neurosurgery Procedures Available
Innovative image guidance, brain mapping and tractography plays a major role in our neurosurgery procedures. These advanced MRI-based, non-invasive imaging techniques give our neurosurgeons the image guidance they need to be more accurate and reduce surgery time – which in turn reduces patient recovery time. Not only do we have these state-of-the-art imaging technologies, we’ve been using them for years.
One of our newest and most advanced neurosurgery procedures — brain surgery for epilepsy — includes both non-invasive, minimally invasive and/or invasive electroencephalography (EEG) monitoring and evaluation and cortical stimulation for localization. The OhioHealth epilepsy team, which includes neurosurgeons, are on the leading-edge of providing a newer, minimally invasive procedure involving stereotactic EEG. This process allows for a much shorter recovery time – giving patients the reassurance that this less invasive procedure can have them back to their daily lives quicker and with less pain.
