Practice Facts & Firsts
Carolina Neurosurgery & Spine Associates is proud to be a part of many neurosurgical “firsts” for this region. Here’s a list of facts and firsts that will continue to grow as we seek to expand the field of neurosurgery:
- Our neurosurgeons serve as the faculty for the Neurological Surgery Residency Program at Atrium Health's Carolinas Medical Center.
- Our practice was one of the first in the Southeast to perform surgery on giant cerebral aneurysms under circulatory arrest, and to perform stereotactic procedures for patients with movement disorders.
- We are the leader in minimally invasive spine techniques such as cervical microendoscopic discectomy (MED), which was developed by one of our neurosurgeons.
- Our practice performs more cervical and lumbar MED procedures than any other practice in the country.
- One of our neurosurgeons was the first in the Carolinas to use an artificial disc to successfully treat degenerative disc disease (ruptured disc).
- Surgeons from around the world come to our practice to train in advanced spinal techniques.
