Neurosurgery

UBMD Neurosurgery is dedicated to providing world-class neurosurgical care. We take a team approach to diagnosing and treating complex disorders of the central nervous system, so our patients benefit from the collaborative efforts of well-respected physicians and other medical professionals.

Our physicians see patients at offices throughout Western New York and receive requests to assist in treating patients from all over the world.

Every year we see thousands of patients and perform thousands of neurosurgical and endovascular procedures—an impressive case volume that reflects the extent of our services and our reputation as a comprehensive, compassionate health care provider.

Services We Provide

Neuroendovascular/stroke

Our neuroendovascular team diagnoses and treats the vascular abnormalities and diseases of the brain and spinal cord that can lead to stroke, including:

  • aneurysms
  • atherosclerotic occlusive disease
  • arteriovenous malformations
  • arteriovenous fistulas

We excel in minimally invasive endovascular treatments as well as more traditional open surgical approaches.

Pediatric neurosurgery

Our pediatric team is skilled in minimally invasive neurosurgical techniques that allow for the more precise and less traumatic removal of brain tumors and other brain lesions in children.

We also specialize in the following pediatric areas:

  • endoscopic neurosurgery
  • developmental spinal disorders
  • surgical treatment of epilepsy
  • comprehensive craniofacial treatment
  • brain tumor treatment
  • neurosurgical treatments for spasticity
  • tertiary neurosurgical trauma management

Comprehensive movement disorders

Our highly specialized team—comprised of a neurosurgeon, a neurologist, nursing staff and social workers—treats movement disorders using the most current medical and surgical treatments and procedures.

We specialize in the evaluation and treatment of:

  • Parkinson’s disease and Parkinsonian syndromes
  • tremor
  • spasmodic torticollis and other focal or generalized dystonias
  • hemifacial spasm
  • blepharospasm
  • medically refractory spasticity secondary to multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury or stroke

Spine/skull base disorders

Our spine/skull base disorders team uses traditional surgery and minimally invasive techniques to care for patients.

Specific conditions we treat include:

  • herniated discs
  • spine instability
  • spinal deformities
  • head trauma
  • vascular lesions, infections and tumors of the skull base

Brain endoscopy and pituitary

Our endoscopy team specializes in:

  • removal of pituitary and ventricular lesions
  • biopsy and removal of pituitary and intraventricular tumors

Our minimally invasive approach often eliminates the need for traditional open craniotomies. We perform procedures through small cosmetic incisions, resulting in less postoperative pain and shorter hospital stays.
