NEUROSURGERY

The medical specialty known as neurosurgery is focused on the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of disorders that affect the entire nervous system, including:

  The Spinal Column
 The Spinal Cord
 The Brain
  Peripheral Nerves

In addition to the latest minimally invasive spine surgery techniques,
Dr. Gomez performs advanced neurosurgery for patients with a wide range of cranial conditions.

SPINE SURGERY

If nonsurgical treatment options fail to relieve symptoms, Dr. Gomez emphasizes minimally invasive spine surgery.

A MIS surgery reduces the size of incision, lessens disruption to muscles and tendons, and allows a shorter hospital stay. Indeed, patients often go home the same day, and the recovery is typically faster and less painful.
