Stanford University School of Medicine is one of the world's leading centers of medical research. Founded in 1990, the Department of Neurosurgery is strongly committed to cross-disciplinary research that brings current medical developments into clinical practice.
Our team of neurosurgeons provides thorough evaluations, diagnoses, and treatments for brain, nerve, and spinal cord diseases and disorders in children and adults.
Patients and their families are eager to learn about neurological disease, to identify an appropriate doctor for its management, to understand available treatments, and to prepare for any lifestyle changes that may be necessary. Each patient is treated as an unique individual, as physical, psychological, and philosophical differences may affect treatment choices. We encourage patients to discuss these factors and any other concern with us. Open, frank communication is essential to effective medical care.
Our training, clinical experience, and scientific research are driven by a sincere dedication to excellent medical care. We have compassion for the patients we treat and for the families who care for them. We are fortunate to have excellent facilities and the most technologically advanced equipment in the world to help us treat neurological diseases.
