Neurosurgery Q & A
What is neurosurgery?
Neurosurgery focuses on the surgical management of diseases that affect your nervous system, such as your brain, spine, and peripheral nerves. This type of surgery can also address disease-related damage in the supporting structures, like the bones, ligaments and blood vessels.
Dr. Kuznits and the team at Neurosurgical Care focus on treating nerve damage and disease in areas like your:
- Brain (cranial)
- Neck (cervical)
- Mid-back (thoracic)
- Low back (lumbar)
- Sacroiliac (pelvic joint)
- Peripheral nervous system
Dr. Kuznits designs a surgical treatment plan to address issues like chronic pain or disability that stem from nerve damage.
Why do I need neurosurgery?
The goals of neurosurgery are to repair damage to the nervous system and its supporting structures to improve your overall functionality and to prevent a worsening of the condition.
A number of conditions can damage the nervous system and negatively impact your health. Dr. Kuznits may recommend surgery to relieve chronic pain and other symptoms of conditions like:

In many cases, surgery is a last resort and considered only after other therapies fail. Dr. Kuznits discusses your overall goals and evaluates your condition to determine if surgery is your best option.
