Most people think of neurosurgery as brain surgery — but it is much more! It is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of patients with injury to, or diseases/disorders of the brain, spinal cord and spinal column, and peripheral nerves within all parts of the body. The specialty of neurosurgical care includes both adult and pediatric patients. Dependent upon the nature of the injury or disease a neurological surgeon may provide surgical and/or non-surgical care.

“I would highly recommend Henderson health care to anyone. I had my son at the hospital and the Doctor, and nurses were absolutely amazing! It was one of the best hospital stays I’ve had. I didn’t have one negative thing to say about my stay. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and I felt like they really went above and beyond for me and my family!”
