World class neurosurgical care in Northern California
The Department of Neurological Surgery at UC Davis Health is home to internationally recognized experts in neurosurgical disorders. We provide neurosurgical care for the majority of the Northern California area and collaborate closely with the University’s NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, Level I Trauma Center, Center for Neuroscience, and Stroke Program to ensure that patients have access to advanced, multidisciplinary, patient focused care. We offer a full-range of technologies and provide the most current and effective treatments for the entire spectrum of neurological disease. Our research programs have tested advances in neuroimaging and treatments that improve outcomes and quality of life for patients with brain aneurysms, Parkinson’s disease, spinal cord injury, seizures and degenerative disc disease.
