Welcome to the Department of Neurosurgery at SIU Medicine. Our board-certified neurosurgeons and other providers deliver state-of-the-art neurosurgical care to communities throughout central and southern Illinois.

Neurosurgeons have extensive training in the diagnosis, treatment and management of conditions affecting your brain and spine. Our providers use the latest technology and research-based techniques to perform surgery for conditions like brain tumors, spinal fusions, herniated discs or movement disorders. We also provide non-surgical prevention and treatment options to help with pain management.

It’s our goal to help patients and their loved ones make informed choices about their health. To do this, we cultivate a patient-friendly environment that emphasizes education, coordination of care and optimized outcomes.
