What is Neurosurgery?

Neurosurgery focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of nervous system disorders. A neurologist uses medication and non-surgical treatment methods, while a neurosurgeon operates on the brain, spine, and nerves. At Sturdy we have a relationship with Brigham and Women's Neurosurgery at Mansfield Health Center that allows us to bring the expertise of two neurosurgeons to treat a variety of brain and spinal conditions.
