The Department of Neurological Surgery provides surgical approaches to treat a variety of spine disorders and neurological disorders, including epilepsy, stroke, brain aneurysms and brain tumors. Many of their surgeries are performed minimally invasively, including those for spine disorders and back pain.
Extensive experience, quality care: Rush's neurosurgery program consistently has the highest volume of neurosurgical discharges in the Chicago region. In addition to extensive surgical experience, the department conducts research aimed at improving patient care.
This focus on quality is just one of the reasons why the neurological sciences and neurological surgery programs at Rush are ranked No. 8 in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.
