Neurosurgical Services Offered

Our physicians seek the least invasive and most technically advanced treatment options for our patients. As a practice leader, Dr. Reginald Davis is on the forefront of endoscopic and computer-assisted head and spine surgery. Our successful surgical outcomes have made us one of the most highly regarded practices in the country. Greater Baltimore Neurosurgical Associates services include:

Bone graft substitutions and fusions

An approach to relieving back pain by fusing a segment of the spine by adding bone graft to an area of the spine between two vertebrae. Traditionally, the bone for the graft has come from the patients own hip-- a frequently painful procedure that requires, in effect, a second surgery. Today, we can eliminate that painful step by using substitute materials for the graft, either donor bone or an artificial substance that accomplishes the same result.

Computer image assisted spine and head surgery, using the "Stealth Station"

A new, minimally invasive approach to treat injuries to the spine or brain that uses CT or MRI scans to provide surgeons three-dimensional and cross-sectional views of the injured area, reducing surgical trauma and significantly lessening time in the operating room.

Disc prosthesis

An alternative approach to spine fusion surgery in which the diseased disc is replaced with an artificial disc, with the intent of restoring segment mobility, eliminating back pain, and reducing stress on the adjacent spine segments.

Interventional Neuroradiology

A less invasive approach than traditional surgery that uses combinations of radiology, arterial catheters and micro-surgery to treat a variety of brain and spine conditions, including aneurysms, tumors, and abnormal connections between arteries and veins.

Kyphoplasty

A minimally invasive procedure to treat the pain of compression fractures, stabilize the fracture, restore height and reduce deformity.

Micro endoscopic discectomies

A minimally invasive spine procedure, using a very small incision, to relieve pressure on a nerve root or spinal cord by removing loose fragments and disc material from the herniated disc, aided by a microscopic view of the spine.

Microscopic anterior discectomy

A minimally invasive discectomy in which the approach to the spine is made from the anterior, or front of the patient, rather than the posterior, or back of the patient, which avoids trauma to the large muscles of the back.

Motion segment preservation

The aim of a number of alternative approaches to bone grafts and fusions intended to preserve as much natural motion in the spine and back as possible.

Vertebroplasty

A minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure to relieve the pain of compression fractures, using injected orthopedic "cement" to fix the vertebral body
