Neurological care

Neurological care is the practice of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment and function of diseases relating to the nerves and nervous system. Neurologists and neurosurgeons treat disorders that affect the brain or spinal cord.

Neurosurgeons in Utah

The neurosurgeons at MountainStar Medical Group are dedicated to treating conditions of the brain, spine and nervous system.

From brain tumors to spinal cord injuries, our neurological care teams work with each patient to diagnose their condition and create an individualized treatment plan. When possible, we also offer access to minimally invasive neurosurgical procedures.

Conditions we treat

Our doctors are experienced in treating a variety of neurological conditions, including:

  • Back pain
  • Brain tumors
  • Neck and low back pain with or without radiation into extremity
  • Neck or back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Subdural hematomas
  • Sensation disorders

Advanced neurosurgical care

Chronic neurological disorders can cause pain and disruption in a person's everyday life. This is why our care teams work one-on-one with each patient and takes the time to understand their unique situation when creating a treatment plan. From non-invasive treatments to advanced neurosurgery, our goal is to help patients heal.

Minimally invasive neurosurgery

Our doctor's specialize in minimally invasive surgical techniques  for neurosurgical procedures. This means our surgeons can perform procedures using much smaller incisions than with traditional surgery, a tiny camera and thin, specialized surgical instruments. Because of this, there are many benefits to patients, including:

  • Fewer complications
  • Less harm to surrounding tissue
  • Less postoperative pain
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Reduced scarring
  • Quicker recovery time

Treatments and services we offer

Our expert neurologists will provide a thorough evaluation before deciding on a treatment method. Often times, our doctors will recommend noninvasive treatments—such as medication management or physical therapy—before suggesting surgery. However, when these noninvasive treatments are unsuccessful and require advanced care, our neurosurgeons are here to help.

We provide patients with a wide range of neurosurgical treatments and services, including:

  • Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion
  • Anterior lumbar interbody fusion
  • Arthroplasty
  • Brain and spine biopsy for tumor identification
  • Brain and spine tumor excision (benign and malignant)
  • Burr hole craniotomy for subdural hematoma
  • Chiari malformation decompression
  • Lead placements for spinal cord stimulators
  • Lumbar and cervical revisions utilizing computer guidance and intraoperative imaging
  • Minimally invasive decompression (lumbar spine)
  • Minimally invasive discectomy (spine)
  • Posterior lumbar interbody stabilization
  • Sacroiliac joint stabilization
