In neurosurgery at Mayo Clinic, doctors trained in brain and nervous system surgery (neurosurgeons) treat people with brain and nervous system (neurologic surgery) conditions.

Mayo Clinic neurosurgeons have expertise and experience in evaluating and treating people with neurological conditions. Neurosurgeons provide the most current management and surgical techniques, including minimally invasive options.

Doctors in the Department of Neurologic Surgery at Mayo Clinic in Arizona, the Department of Neurosurgery at Mayo Clinic in Florida, and the Department of Neurologic Surgery at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota perform several thousand procedures each year.

Mayo Clinic neurosurgeons work with an integrated team of doctors trained in brain and nervous system conditions (neurologists), tumors of the brain and nervous system (neuro-oncologists), brain and nervous system imaging (neuroradiologists), musculoskeletal conditions (orthopedic surgeons), ear, nose and throat conditions (ear, nose and throat specialists), endocrine gland conditions (endocrinologists), physical medicine and rehabilitation, pain medicine, and other areas to provide the most appropriate treatment for your condition.

Doctors trained in treating children with neurological conditions (pediatric neurologists and neurosurgeons) care for children at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.

Mayo Clinic doctors use the latest technology in neurosurgery, such as intraoperative MRI. Doctors also use technology in computer-assisted brain surgery, stereotactic radiosurgery, awake brain surgery, deep brain stimulation and other complex surgical procedures.

Mayo Clinic researchers actively study risks, causes, and new diagnostic tests and treatments for neurological conditions and conduct clinical trials.
