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.
