Why choose a neurosurgeon?

Neurosurgeons are trained as both brain and spine surgeons. They are the only physicians who surgically treat the brain and the entire spine; including the spinal cord and nerves.

What should I do if I have questions or concerns after discharge from the hospital or after business hours?
  If you need urgent care after office hours, call 911 or proceed to the nearest emergency room. If you are able, proceed to the hospital were you had surgery.  If necessary, the emergency room will contact our physicians for direction.  Our after hours answering service can take non-emergent messages to be returned the next business day. 

Otherwise, please call us at (612) 871-7278, Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.   Our office has experienced Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, and medical secretaries who can answer many of your questions or will relay your message to your neurosurgeon for follow-up.  Please note, because of their lengthy operating and clinic schedules, your neurosurgeon may not be available to return your call.
