Message from the Chairman
Welcome to the website for the University of Wisconsin Department of Neurological Surgery. In this website you will learn about our department, which is dedicated to providing the very best clinical neurosurgical care for the many disorders of the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nervous system, as well as the blood vessels which support them. You will learn about our work on disorders such as:
- brain tumors
- brain hemorrhages from aneurysms (congenital or acquired abnormalities)
- spinal cord injuries or degenerations of the spinal and peripheral nerve disorders
- pediatric and congenital disorders of the central and peripheral nervous systems
