Miami Neuroscience Institute has expertise in every type of neurosurgery, all available under one roof. From traditional spine surgery to the latest radiosurgery techniques, our skilled team of neurosurgeons provides comprehensive and personalized treatment.
Although neurosurgery can be an effective treatment option for many different neurological conditions, our specialists understand the risks involved with these procedures. That’s why we explore every form of treatment for your condition — not just surgery — to find the right plan for you. We don’t take surgery lightly, and we will only choose to operate if we believe it will help relieve your symptoms and improve your overall health and well-being.

What type of neurosurgery is offered at Miami Neuroscience Institute?
Miami Neuroscience Institute has a team of neurosurgeons who each specialize in a specific area of neurosurgery, which means they receive additional training in these areas beyond their general neurosurgery training.
- Some neurosurgery services we provide include:
- Brain tumor surgery
- Skull base tumor surgery
- Back, neck and spine surgery
- Endoscopic or endonasal neurosurgery
- Functional neurosurgery, including deep brain stimulation and high-intensity focused ultrasound
- Cerebrovascular neurosurgery, including coiling, thrombectomy and Woven EndoBridge (WEB) device placement

Our neurosurgeons also use interoperative MRIs and CT scans to track brain and spine status during neurosurgery. This technology allows us to give more precise treatment that improves patient safety and outcomes. Miami Neuroscience Institute’s interoperative monitoring program is certified by the American Board of Neurophysiology Monitoring (ABNM).

When you come to Miami Neuroscience Institute for neurosurgery, you can expect:
- A conservative approach to treatment whenever possible, with surgery only considered when it is the best option for you.
- A personalized approach to each patient, with a goal of finding the right treatment for your specific condition.
- A team of specialized neurosurgeons who have extensive training and experience in their field.
The amount of time you spend in the hospital will depend on your diagnosis and the type of surgery you have. For some functional neurosurgery procedures, such as high-intensity focused ultrasound, you may be able to go home the same day as the procedure. For some other operations, such as a craniotomy, you may need to stay in the hospital for two days, or as many as seven to 10 days.
Our team always takes a conservative approach to neurosurgery, which means using less-invasive methods whenever possible. If incisions are required for your procedure, we will do everything possible to avoid making the incisions on your face and make them behind the hairline instead.
