Neurosurgery Clinic

Your physician may refer you to UAMS for a variety of nervous system or spinal column issues, including:

  • Seizure surgery
  • Brain implants
  • Pediatric neurosurgery
  • Neuron-oncology, including brachytherapy and radiation surgery

Our team of neurosurgeons also is experienced in neuro-endocrinology and disorders affecting the spine and spinal cord. UAMS is also one of the few hospitals in the country that offers skull base surgery.

We can also help you with pain management, peripheral and cranial nerve surgery and treatment of vascular disease. Our state-of-the-art neurosurgical equipment includes intraoperative electrophysical monitoring.

Our services feature the Gamma Knife, the only one of its kind in Arkansas, which is used by our doctors to correct a wide variety of abnormalities in the brain and cervical spine, including:

  • Metastatic, malignant and benign tumors
  • Facial pain
  • Vascular disorders, such as arteriovenous and cavernous malformations

We see patients from around the world, as our neurosurgeons are widely known for their surgical expertise as well as the personal attention patients receive. We are also home to Dr. M. Gazi Yasargil, internationally known as one of the pioneers of microneurosurgery, and named neurosurgeon of the century in 1999.
