Advanced treatment for back, neck, spine and brain conditions

 Though sometimes referred to as “brain surgeons,” neurosurgeons also treat a broad range of conditions involving the back, neck and spine. In fact, back and neck pain are two of the leading reasons people miss work or collect disability, and they top the list of ailments addressed by our neurosurgeon at United Regional Physician Group.

Back and neck pain can be caused by a number of problems, from a simple muscle strain to underlying conditions requiring surgical intervention such as disk herniation or a spinal tumor.
