Neurosurgery is a type of surgery that focuses on a patient's nervous system — the brain, spinal cord and spinal column, and other nerves throughout the body.
The neurosurgery department at UPMC Aut Even Hospital, offers nationally recognised spine care and spinal surgery. Skilled in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of disorders, our neurosurgery team utilises minimally invasive techniques to achieve the best results for our patients.
