What We Treat Services


Mercy Hospital offers highly specialized neurosurgical procedures for complex spinal conditions, brain tumors and neurological disorders.

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Our surgeons, sub-specialty trained in neurosurgery, provide you with the most innovative and effective surgical treatments available for back problems. We may use minimally invasive surgery if you have lumbar and cervical disk herniation, spinal stenosis, age-related wear on spinal disks, bones in your spine that slip out of place and disk degeneration.

Minimally invasive spine surgery offers several advantages over open surgery, including:

  • Minimally disrupting the normal tissues (muscles, ligaments, etc.).
  • A few tiny scars instead of one large scar.
  • Shorter hospital stay.
  • Less pain after surgery.
  • Faster recovery time.
  • Less blood loss during surgery.

Brain Tumors & Other Neurosurgical Conditions

Brain tumors, lesions and other serious conditions affecting your brain and nervous system are often in hard-to-reach areas, surrounded by delicate nerves and arteries. Mercy Hospital offers skilled neurosurgeons who treat some of the most complex brain tumors and neurological conditions. 

In addition to traditional, open surgery, Gamma Knife® surgery is another way Mercy Hospital neurosurgeons treat hard-to-reach tumors and lesions. Gamma Knife surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that uses high-energy radiation therapy to pinpoint brain tumors and lesions. This treatment destroys them or keeps them from growing while not hurting nearby healthy brain tissue. Gamma Knife surgery may be an effective treatment option if you have:

  • Acoustic neuroma.
  • Arteriovenous malformations.
  • Brain tumors (cancerous and noncancerous).
  • Essential tremor.
  • Parkinson’s disease.
  • Trigeminal neuralgia.
