For patients who need specialized brain and spinal care, the neurosurgery team at Richmond University Medical Center can help. Using revolutionary techniques, we can help alleviate pain, improve mobility and restore functioning in many cases involving the brain, spinal cord and nervous system. 

Conditions Treated

Our talented neurosurgeons treat the following conditions:

Brain Tumors. Patients will have access to the latest advancements in brain tumor diagnosis and treatment at RUMC. As a result, the prognosis for both benign and malignant brain tumors continues to improve significantly. Specialized care is available for most types of brain tumors, including meningiomas and pituitary tumors.
