Your Brain

Who Am I?  Your brain is the home of your experiences, your personality, and your decisions. Your brain also instructs the rest of the body about what it is supposed to do. Our neurosurgeons have advanced training in the treatment of cranial disease, pituitary tumors and brain injury.

Brain Anatomy

The brain is the control center of the human body. It forms your thoughts and preserves your memories. It regulates your body's actions, from the movements you choose to perform to the functions you don't even consciously think about. Animation See More
 

Concussions

This common brain injury is caused by an impact to the head or upper body. A concussion interferes with brain function. In most cases the effects are mild and temporary, and the concussion does not cause permanent injury. But a concussion is a serious injury that can cause lasting brain damage or death if not treated properly. See More
 

Myelopathy

This is a problem that affects your spinal cord. It happens when something presses harmfully against it. Your spinal cord is the main nerve pathway between your brain and your body. Pressure on it can cause problems throughout your body. See More
 

Pituitary Tumors

Your pituitary gland is found just under your brain. This pea-sized gland makes hormones that affect many of your body's functions. A pituitary tumor can cause it to release too much or too little of these hormones. This can cause serious problems. See More
 

Traumatic Brain Injury - TBI

This is an injury that damages your brain. It results in brain dysfunction. It can severely impact your life. See More
 

Cranioplasty

This reconstructive surgical procedure is performed to correct congenital problems of the skull, or to repair the skull after a traumatic injury or medical procedure. During the procedure, a custom plate made from porous plastic or titanium is fitted over the defect in the skull, restoring the skull to its normal shape. See More
 

Craniotomy for Epidural Hematoma

This procedure, performed under general anesthesia, creates an opening through the skull for removal of a blood clot between the skull and the dura (the membrane that surrounds the brain). Epidural hematomas commonly result from trauma to the head, and can place harmful pressure on the brain. See More
 

Pituitary Gland: The Master Gland

Sometimes referred to as the "master gland" because its hormones control other parts of the endocrine system including the thyroid, adrenal, and ovaries, the pituitary gland is actually signaled into action by the hypothalamus. See More
 

Pituitary Tumors: Treatment

Most pituitary tumors are curable. In many cases if the tumor is small and not secreting any hormones, observation and regular MRIs are all that are necessary to see if the tumor changes over time. See More
 

Pituitary Adenomas and Microadenomas

Pituitary adenomas are surprisingly common with more than 10% of the adult population having an adenoma. See More
 

Pituitary Adenoma Treatment

If the pituitary adenoma is producing hormones, it can sometimes be treated through medical management by a neuro-endocrinologist. Medication is often used in the treatment of prolactinomas, Cushing’s Disease, and acromegaly. See More
